looking to pick up 2 cases of the 5.45, can anyone refer me to the best deals. SG has increased there price on a case of wolf to 199....... too much.
Shipping from Century is $12.95 flat rate for orders under $500, also.All of the Combloc surplus (Russian, Polish, Bulgarian) 5.45mm is corrosive. The cheapest is the Bulgie at Century Arms, on sale the past 4 months at about $118 per 1080 rd. spam can. Shipping is free on any purchase of $500 or more.
If you want non-corrosive, the cheapest is 70 grain poly Wolf MC at Widener's Reloading. $148 per 1000 if you buy it by the case (+ shipping of course).
Note that the numbers provided on this webpage for Century are for one tin. You mentioned wanting two tins, the shipping would be the same for two tins from Century with their flat rate order fee/no shipping charge, so the cost per round reflected on this page is a bit high.
You have to use the Windex on the gas block and gas tube too, right? What about the gas piston itself? Am I leaving anything out?I just bought a case of Bulgarian 5.45x39 ammo from AIM, a Gunboards sponsor for $119.95 plus postage. It shoots tight groups in my gun ...1 1/2 in at 50 yds compared to Wolf which is erratic at no better than 3-4 in at the same distance. It's corrosive but no big deal if you clean 1st with Windex and then follow with Hoppes.
$119.95 is their newest price.
