It's that new math they are teaching...the results don't matter it's the effort that counts.

Is it just me or does anyone else like that "new ammo smell" you get from a freshly opened spam can.

Were did you order ammo from

I find it interesting that you got the can opener with it. I just got two of those cans in a wood crate and no opener. Fortunately, previous purchases included openers. I wish the shipping charges for this stuff were not so high. I paid $165 for the two cans and with shipping and tax the total was up to $211.

I have a Borg Alcove.

My first "Spam can" ofd 7.62X54R came in weith my MosinM44 Carbine. The 440 rounds lasted two weekends!

I ordered three more, opened one and left to other two unopened. I tend to use up ammo fast when the can is open!

I purchased two cans from AIM Surplus. Sweet looking stuff with sealed primers and bullet. Codes indicate 1971 mfg. I am buying more!
