Was it 55 or 53? Cannot seem to remember. Thanks.
All of the Bulg 1950s ammo is suspect. I got some where 1-2 out of 10 cases are split right out of the can. The brass is to hard or to thin and all of the light ball has been poor except the stuff that was on stripper clips, for some reason none of it that I got had splits. I got some yellow tip friday, a 250 round can and 2, 300 round cans from Century and the 300 round cans had a lot of splits, but the 250 round can was looking a lot better but the bullets were not yellow tip, just a yellow stripe on the can. I only bought it to bump the $$ over 500 to get the free shipping on the cheap soft point they had on sale.
They didn't "give" you anything....they sold you more ammo! If you took that can back and let them see what they sold you.......SHAME on them for not exchanging it.

I bought two cans this Friday at a local store, and one can had corroded, nasty looking ammo. Less than 10 rounds looked good enough to fire without cleaning, and less than 40 others looked good enough to shoot with some minor cleaning with 0000 steel wool.
The store doesn't take returns on ammo, but they gave me another can at an incredible discount, and even opened it and made sure the ammo in it was good. I've heard of split necks on this ammo, and found a few in the cans I bought, but I don't think I've ever heard of people opening cans and finding water damage. Has anyone else had this problem?
Maybe so...the water-damaged ammo wasn't totally unusable, as some rounds were in pretty good shape. I was glad to get something out of the deal. Yes, I paid for more ammo, but I got it for 75% off the original price. I can shoot whatever's shootable, pull down the bullets for future reloading, and scrap the bad cases.They didn't "give" you anything....they sold you more ammo!

There isn't a "no refund policy" in the land that can void that!
