Found these today. Havent taken my makarov caliber pistols out in a while. But i stumbled onto couple packagings i'd never seen before.

Label


Now I have a good reason to get my Bulgarian and my P64 out to the range again.

Anyone have any experience with either of these rounds?

The MFS in the green box is brass cased reloadable and flies around 1,000 fps. Good ammo. I always thought the S&B to be more range quality - steel cased and 100 fps slower, but good reliable ammo too.

Thanks for the imput NB.

The MFS has a cool ballistics chart on the side of the box displaying ballistic characteristics between 0-100 meteres for a 100mm/4inch barrel. I hadn't taken the time to convert the chart from metric to American standard. 290m/sec at 100meteres. 1000ft/sec at 100 yards looks like about right. (390m/sec at the muzzle--yikes!!)

I passed on all of the usual 9x18 offerings at the gun show yesterday. As my pistol collection has grown, I shoot my makarov caliber pistols a lot less (my Bulgarian Circle 10 is still the most accurate pistol I've ever shot), so when I go to shows I'm always looking for the more obscure commercial packagings and surplus 9x18 ammo.


I really dig the no-nonsense Czechoslovakian boxes.

Guns get dirty when fired, it's just a fact of life. And straight blow-back designs like the Makarov get really sooty after a range session, particularly inside the slide. I thought it was more common with steel cased ammo, but I put two boxes of brass cased ammo through my Bulgy at my last range session and it was filthy. And that was with S&B brass and MFS brass ammo. I always clean my guns well after every shooting session.
