New production 7.62x54R
 
I saw that surplusammo.com has surplus 7.62x54R ammo for sale and they say in the description that it is new production corrosive surplus 7.62x54r ammo. What do they mean by "new production"?

7.62x54r is still the Russian heavy rifle round. I am assuming it is modern surplus rather than the soviet era stuff we normally see

That's what I was thinking, I will pick some up and see how it shoots.

If it's new why's it still corrosive??Don't the Russians use non-corrosive ???

JayCody 09-27-2013 04:36 PM

I have read some where that it is cheaper to make corrosive. I will give them a call and see exactly what they got

They are probably using modern non corrosive power but still using the corrosive primers. Thats my guess.

JayCody 09-27-2013 08:00 PM

I gave them a call and.... It means that the ammo has not been reloaded.
