    Too funny, I just received my same crate of Russian ammo goodness today too! I love buying ammo in wooden crates, it is much more satisfying than cardboard.

    Those crates are great for target practice, too.;)

    Years ago I bought a crate of 30\06, in bandoliers and clips. That's was more fun than a kid should have with an M1, I shot em all up in 2 days. My shoulder was so sore I had trouble moving it.

    I still have the clips but I chucked the bandoliers.

    I did the same thing a Spam can of 30-06 AP black tip in clips & Bandolliers for 83.00. Wish I could do that now.

    Buy this stuff up while it is available. At some point in the near future, I have a feeling Mosin ammo will go way up. Just like .30-06 did.

    That's right. 1976. I find it to be some of the finest rounds for my Mosin. I paid 150.00 for the crate. Best bang for my buck. Just have to clean the heck out of it afterwards, which isn't a problem for me.

    I have some rounds from 1953 that are in good condition. As long as a round has been kept dry and no oxidation present it will shoot just fine. I keep silica packs in my ammo cans to help keep the moisture away from all of the ammunition.
