Wow, this is the stuff that Century (or was it AIM?) was selling for five cents a round with $12 delivery on any size order about three years ago.

Too bad I knew my wife would flip if a pallet of it showed up. A couple of guys over at 1919a4.com really stocked up ~as in cracked the garage floor.

Oh well, just have to remember next time that I've never wished I bought less ammo...

I've seen some mixed review's about the 1950's yugo heave ball. What is ya'lls experience? I know its cheap, but last think I want is 900 rounds of no-bang ammo.

Primary use would be with a Vz.24

Thank you

I've used quite a bit of it and it does have hard primers. You'll prolly need to upgrade to a heavier spring in the VZ, but my Yugo guns seem to shoot it just fine.

I have had great luck in the past with the 1950's Yugo. Just get a heavier firing pin spring from Wolff Gunsprings and you will be good to go.

It was Century and my butt is still sore from kicking myself for not buying more at the time.

$45 per case (900 rds). Me and two friends ordered 7 cases. Free shipping with a $12 "processing" fee. Those were the days.

Then there was the 1940's Greek 8mm. 700 rounds for $35 (gunshow purchase).

And the deal when AIM had $119 VZ-24s with a can of Romanian 8mm for an extra $20.

Yup- I can still remember the day that my Century rep called to tell me about the 8mm deal. I didn't get it because their minimum order is $75, and I didn't need anything else. WTF was I thinking!!! Less than a year later, surplus 8mm was almost dried up and what you could find was doubled in price.

I have not had any misfires or cracked cases. The ammo is tarnished, but I have had no bad experience with it. I think that I prefer the Romanian 150 though because of less recoil.

Iranian 8mm available over at Samco today

https://www.samcoglobal.com/Ammo-8mm.html

I wonder how this Iranian stuff shoots. I'm scared because Iran = Evil = Nasty
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 2:43:38 AM EDT
i ordered from aim, can't beat the cost with free shipping, not to mention, i like the romanian ammo anyway.
Link Posted: 9/8/2010 3:18:54 AM EDT
I shoot only the romanian stuff. Sure fire and no case ruptures. It goes through a F/A MG42 a semi MG34 and various 8mm rifles. Never had a problem with it

Those days are in the rear view mirror and will never return.


Actually 27 cents a round is pretty good now a days. Typically its more like 35 cents with shipping.

Turk blows up guns. You couldn't pay me to shoot turk 8mm


Semi Auto???? I have never had problems with turk ammo in 98K's Oh I agree its hot stuff, and has been tested at 3000 plus FPS, due to granulation over the years.

I have heard never to fire it in semi auto firearms like the M76.
