I didn't think Century had any of the Bulgarian HB, thought it was all LB? Good news in that one respect if they do have it.

54R

It will sell. I won't buy any at that price, but guarantee it'll sell. Ammo keeps spiraling up. It costs this much in the early nineties, and then the price went on average to 10c a round. Now it seems like 20c for 54R surplus will be the average, (I hope). Reloading is also gone up quite a bit, unfortunately.

107.87 + 12.50 (shipping) =120.37/600 = .20 cents a round. They can sell it to whoever will buy it but it won't be me for .20 cents a round.

I am in good shape, so it does not effect me. If I was shooting non NFA weapons, then ammo that costs $4 per box of 20 when comparing to commercial ammo is still a good buy in my book. I would go a head and buy for what I want to shoot for a couple of years. If prices go back down, then I would make a big buy. If prices double again, then you are protected for a while. If we see 30 to 40 cent surplus, then I may have to sell my Maxim and all the ammo. Hopefully neither will happen.
Just another opinion.

I laughed and deleted it.

I have plenty of tins of 7.52X54.

The local shops do too.

The shortage is only online.

They have been sold out on the bulg 762X54R for a long time where did this come from?
Only things I can think of is either more came off the boat, they missed a pallet or two of it before, or they held back on some of it so they could make more money on it.

I think they have had it all along They seen the price going up and held it back to drive up the price.
