HA! Right on. POF, 50's Yugo, Bulgarian this-and-that: all crap until it's all that's left, then "it's not that bad..." follows closely behind.Hmmm... I seem to remember all the banter about how the 50's yugo stuff was crap - head separations, case splits, 'It'll blow up my rifle', etc.
A year or two ago I bought three cases for about 80 bucks ea. and I never had any problems with it.
Funny how things change when the supply goes way down and the prices triple...
I bought thousands of rounds of Turk, maybe 5-7 for a couple bucks a bando just to put away. Now 1 bando is worth about 29.00, more than a case was worth. Loaded up on 10-12 thousand rds. of 70's Yugo and Romo between 2 and 4 years ago when it was really cheap. I'll never be able to shoot what I have, (and that's just the 8mm) it will eventually go to the kid. We have nothing on our side now for cheap ammo. Glad I loaded up on it when I did.Yeah, just three years ago, I was new at milsurps, and I bought one bando of 1947 Turk 8mm. Well, I shot that bando with no problems except a few split necks upon firing. I said so what? I then began reading all the horror stories about Turk ammo, and how bad, cheap and unreliable it was. I began buying a lot of it at $26.25 per 700 rnds. I have been glad that I bought several thousands of rounds of it because it is just FUN to shoot. I wonder if some of those guys who did not like and did not buy it at that price, would now be interested in some. I am keeping all mine, thank you very much.
