Romy 8mm

I was reading Shotgun News from Jan 07, and InterOrd had this ammo for $30 a can, what a difference a year makes, and it's not even a year yet!!! 8mm surplus is now set at around 25c to 35c a round back where it was in the eighties when it was real hard to find. Great for those who bought at 4-7c a round, terrible for those who are getting into Mausers now.

I'm betting the price will go up or go down...

Saw that today as well. I stocked up when it was $60 a case and local pickup. I thought about picking up a couple cases, don't really need them.

Think I will buy a new B barrel M39 instead.

Also looks like the packaging might be questionable. May be some of the stuff I got this spring in cigarette cartons and tar.

Bet it's all gone by Monday COB once the word spreads this weekend. The price is not bad, considering the current drought of 8mm.

Hey! I remember that. That was you? The cigarette cartons and tar thing was creepy.

22 cents a round after shipping? Not likely. Maybe for 70s Yugo or Portuguese N/C, or WW2 German, but I can reload for around that price and have the brass left to boot.
