I got 1200 round of this for $100.00 was it worth it?

Yeah, uhh, not even suppose to have that at all, highly illegal. PM me and I will send you the address you can ship it to for destruction. I'll even I mean they will even pay for your costs and shipping.  8)


No that's a heck of a deal, I wish I had bought millions of them when they were $1.70 a box way back when.

So what’s so special about this stuff?
 last time I bought ammo you could get it for $79.00/m understandably that was 20 years ago.

Some might call them AP or Kop killer rds.I call them block buster rds for killing car engines.No new imports of steel core ammo for the general public.

It's the most evil vile round out there, you could take out the entire U.S. Army and Marines with only five rounds of it. Man I'm just full of it this morning.

No it's just part of the China/Norinco Ban Clinton did. A lot of people want it because it's steal core thinking it is armor piercing. What I think is funny back in the early 90s nobody wanted it because it was steal core and they were afraid it would wear out there barrel. I always got it because I figured I could just grab another $80 SKS.

By the way, welcome to the boards! Lots of good stuff on here. You did good posting a pic out the gate, we love pics.

Great score,I have some of that stuff,you paid about $1.65 per 20 for that haul.  It's good quality ammo not AP buy any means but penetrates slightly better than your standard steel jacket lead core commie ammo.  The core is made form mild steel,the Chicoms among others used steel for the core which is cheaper than lead.  Be careful of your backstop the steel core at time has a tenancy to separate from the jacket on hard targets and ricochets are possible.

Great deal on that. Pat yourself on the back. I have some of this ammo, shoots pretty good. It is hard to find. I think there is a gun shop here that is selling it for $5.99 a box(20rds). I need to go pick them up.
What? Me worry?

No, no, he needs an "Ordnance Disposal Expert" for that stuff.  If the green goo leaks out, the zombies will eat your brains. :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  I'll pm you my addy, and have the "Disposal Expert" on standby when it arrives.

j/k

You did good on that score, dude.  I'd invest in a couple of ammo cans and stash it for later....if you know what I mean.  I've shot some of the old Norinco stuff, and it seemed to have a flatter trajectory than Wolf ammo.
