After hunting yesterday, i stopped at a local saloon for a beer and some deer stories. The owner,a friend of mine, said the young fellow at the head of the bar wanted speaks with me.
I approached the young man to find out what he wanted of me. He said "i heard your into guns and always looking for ammo?"
Found this out from my friend the owner.
Let me make a long story short, he claims to have inherited 12,000 rounds of 7.62/51(.308) and will sell them for $60-$80 for 200 round boxes.:confused:
He claims their russian bloc stuff, brass and berdan primed and in good shape.
When i check this stuff out i'll let ya'll know. If ya'll want it, i can pick up a load and sell it to you for what I PAY FOR IT.
I'll keep you posted on this.:flag:

I wondered about that as well. I thought 7.62x51 was a NATO round.

You guys know more of this stuff than i do(thats obvious). When i go to check it out, i'll try to get some photos and let you guys figure it out. Remember, i met this guy in a bar....he may have been drunk and full of shit.
I will try to hook up with him this weekend.:flag:

If i'm not mistaken, 7.62x54 can not be used in a .308?:confused:

If it's the right stuuf, i'll definitely pick some up and then we can figure out how to get it to you guys as i live clean on the other side of the state. I'd have no problem with meeting one of you guys half way to get it to ya'll.:lol:

No the two calibers arent interchangeable
What I would do is right down all the different headstamps or take closeup pics
If its 7.62x54 thats not that great a deal,I wouldnt buy it
Again ,if it is 7.62x51 I would be interested in a good amount of it depending on headstamp
If I can be of any help as far as identification PM me

If this does pan out to be 7.62 x 51, then you won't have any problems selling this stuff off! I'd be interested, that's for sure.

Found out where the ammo guy works. I know his boss. Ran into the boss this morning and asked him to have the guy call me. He said he would. We'll see what happens?:flag:
