Default Red Army Standard Ammunition

Recently I've been seeing ads by Century in SGN advertising their new ammo line "Red Army Standard Ammunition". Their website says that it is priced at surplus ammo prices and is available in 5.45x39, 7.62x39, and 7.62x54R. Does anyone have any experience with this new ammo? If so, how is the quality? How much does it cost compared to Milsurp and non-Milsurp ammo(such as Wolf, Tulammo, Brown Bear)? Does it function reliably? Please reply.

I picked up some at my local gun shop (Riley's) here in NH, $6.99 for a pack if 30 7.62x39 sent a could boxes down range in my Russian SKS seems like quality ammo. Made in Romania, non-corrosive. I'd recommend it.

$6.99 for 30 rounds? That's $0.23 a round. Wow that's good. Other than Century, is there any other online retailer that sells them?

Ah ok. That comes out to $0.37 a round. It's running about $0.42 a round online.

I think Riley's is the largest firearms retailer in the state so they usually have the best deals as they make it up on volume of sales.

I've never heard of them (I'm in Alabama). Bass Pro, Walmart, Academy, and a small handful of gun/pawn shops around me.
