Where can I find some Yugo 8mm for cheap?

I bought a case of 900 from SG and it's 1955 dated. I have had about 47 out of every 100 misfire. I paid 80 bucks for it + shipping.

47 out of 100? Have you tried a new firing pin spring?

I have 2 cases of Romanian 8mm and all of it runs fine. A friend tried the Yugo ammo  and it does the same thing in his rifle as well. The firing pin dents the primers deep so I concluded I have a bad case of ammo. I saw another thread with someone else asking about Yugo 8mm and most of those guys said works ok in their rifles.

I've posted this in most of the yugo 8mm threads I see.
I have determined that there are 2 manufacturers of the 1950's yugo ammo. One makes great stuff, the other makes stuff with hard primers. All of it will fire, but it needs double strikes.
ETA: unfortunately all of my 8mm stash is the stuff with the hard primers, I shot all the other stuff before making my discovery.
