Do a google search, you will find many vendors. Pick the quantity you want then shop for the best price INCLUDING SHIPPING.

$150-160 for 880 rounds is a fair deal.

So if I were to buy ammo from budsgunshop.com it might be a good idea? I'm just afraid I'll get bad rounds or something

I would be more worried with shipping costs than bad rounds

Not very likely, most of their surplus was manufactured in the 80's (relatively recently for surplus) and they are stored in sealed airtight tins affectionately known as 'spam cans'...

There is more accurate, non-corrosive stuff out there (Brown Bear) but it's also more expensive...IIRC I think I paid $11 for a box of 20 before my mil-surp arrived, just so I had something to shoot...

Shop it around some, the link I provided is an old one, (still valid) there may be better deals out there...

I buy the majority of my ammo(7.62 x 54) from ammoman.com. They have free shipping and I normally receive my order in about 7 days. I recommend you visit 7.62 x 54.net

Means you need to clean your gun as soon as you can.

It just means you need to give your rifle a good bath with hot HOT water and dish soap followed by the usual brushing/oiling very soon after you shoot it. The Brown Bear is NOT corrosive but you should still get into the habit of cleaning asap, post range trip...

Some say an ammonia based product like Windex is best but that's a misconception, it's actually the water that neutralizes the acids...

Corrosive ammo will begin to destroy the bore of your rifle within hours of shooting if not cleaned properly. There are some other forums devoted specifically to the Mosin-Nagant that will have detailed cleaning instructions. It is not difficult to clean the rifles, but you need to to it properly and consistantly.

Where can I find non-corrosive ammo? And what's the price difference? Is mil-surp ammo better to shoot even though its corrosive?
