Anyone know where to get some?

All that seems to be out there right now is 1950's Polish

The batch I have experience with had cracked necks in quite a few of the rounds, and the power was so low that it wouldn't cycle the bolt in a PPS-43.

AIM has 85gr Prvi Partizan.
AIM is currently sold out. Wideners has the same thing for the same sub-10 boxes price. AIM had a "save $0.70/bx if you buy 10+ boxes" that Wideners doesn't.

I had so many misfires with the Polish in my CZ-52 that I ended up trashing it. Glad I only bought a single box

If I was going to go with new commercial, Cabela's has Wolf Gold a little bit cheaper than that.

That's too bad. It was definitely a buy-it-cheap-stack-it-deep ammo. It has harder primers than commercial non-corrosive 7.62X25 ammo, but it was softer than other surplus you could buy. I bought a number of cans for cheap plinking with Toks and CZ-52's.

Is the Romanian non-corrosive?

No. Combloc is most certainly corrosive.

No, it is all corrosive.
The downside to surplus ammo is it eventually runs out.
Keep this in mind regarding the Polish.......it too will eventually run out.
Luckily I'm sitting on about 7 tins......I need a few more.......

the romanian stuff was/is good shooting stuff, it seems a bit hotter then the current polish stuff floating out there .... this reminds me, i need to order some more.
the polish stuff i've had so far is hit or miss, some cans i've had less then ten duds, other cans, it was more like 2-5 per 72rd box.

Yes. Czech and Yugo 7.62 TT is also pretty good, but I think it's gone.

The best thing to do is ask AIM Surplus in the Industry forum. They usually have a pulse on these things. Widener's had surplus Yugo for a long time but I see they ran out as well.
