I haven't had problems with any of the 3, but the Romanian is newer and cleaner. Stay away from Bulgarian '51 and '52. 1953 and newer is good stuff.

Century has insane deal this month on Polish, time to stock up.

Romanian 7.62x25 suggested

I just received a Romanian spam can of 7.62 x 25 ammo from Aim Surplus and it was manufactured in 1985 - certainly much newer than the Bulgarian and Polish sources produced in the 1950s. A 1224 round can for $120 ($136 delivered) - about as reasonable as I have found for dependable surplus in this caliber. All the Soviet Bloc surplus is corrosive, but after shooting at the range, running through a diluted ammonia patch followed by dry patching, will remove any pitting concerns until normal cleaning.

Keep a lookout at gun shows for Norinco (Chinese; 60 rd yellow box) manufactured in the 90s; this ammo shoots well, is listed as non-corrosive, and should be less expensive than S&B, Wolf, etc.

Have a good time with your fire breather! :D
