    Arrived in the mail today 440 rounds of 7.62x54R Russian Silver tips. I cut my hands a little opening it. But hopefully I will get the hand of it. Got it for $89.99 and it was $9.95 for shipping.so grand total of $106 not a bad price if you ask me because the only other place to get them is Duhnams and they are about $125.00

    Is that packed in oil or tomato sauce? lol

    Glad to see ammo being shipped. Having opened it, looks like you intend to be shooting some?

    Save as much as you can, order more and hope you never need it.

    Nah I open spam cans so if I ever ever need them of wish I pray I never do then I put them in tupperware containers. I'll probably shoot 20 off whenever I go to the range again or my Uncles house.

    Yeah I use ammonia, hot soapy water to clean the barrel and firing pin then put solvent down the barrel, on the firing pin then finally I oil her up with gun oil.

    Last case I bought(two cans) I left it sitting by my reloading desk. "moma" stumped her toe on it---it hit the fan for awhile--lol. I now have her a wide path in the "man cave".

    Caves are dangerous enter at your own risk!
    This should be above the door on all man caves. Not that it would do any good but it is a warning.LOL

    I'm still stuck on your math. How does 89.99 and 9.99 add up to 106.00?

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

    He most likely had to pay a 6% sales tax.

    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.:D

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

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

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