Hot shot 7.62x39 123gr FMJ

Anyone know anything about this romanian imported ammo? Is it corrosive or non corrosive? Known to fail or decent?

Good stuff. I have more of that for my AKs than anything else. Are the 700-round sardine cans actually in stock and available somewhere?

RE: hot shot 7.62 x 39

Shot about 100 rounds of "hot shot" this last weekend, no failures. Wish I could afford more, found a place here in Oregon that sells the 700 round sardine cans for $220. The guy at the store was cool and let me but half a tin for $110. Will defiantly buy more when I can afford it, just hope he will have some left!:eek::eek:

noncorrosive

better quality than Wolf, a fact which is fairly reflected in price difference, the US government has bought some before

buy two cans, that way yuo will have one sealed while you practice with the other, the importation of this will likely be banned since it won't be bar coded and therefore can't be tax stamped (like cigarettes). In fact buy three so you'll have one for your grandson.

only available in FMJ, but i'd much rather shoot somebody with a .30-30 semiauto FMJ than a .22 magnum (.223), if youse know what i meant

Hot Shots

I shot some through my SKS two weeks ago setting my scope... rounds seemed pretty "hot", but I did have one round stovepipe on ejection. I probably fired 200 or so rounds fairly quickly... barrel was pretty hot! I believe they were hotter than the Wolf ammo I was shooting a few weeks prior... looking at buying another case. Who are you looking at for a case? Limited supplies these days, so it seems we are all stocking up!

I'm a long-time AK fan, and though I've never used Hot-Shot, everything i've ever heard or read about it has been very positive. If I found a deal on some, I would grab it in a heartbeat.

Find out the year of manufacture 1970's-1980's would be safe to say yes.1990's maybe but as far as i know newer ammo even from east Europe is none corrosive.
After i shot some real cheap 7.62 x 54 super cheap ammo out of my dragonov only fired 20 and didn't clean my rifle for day and it looked like the gas tube was left outside for a week.Stay the hell away from eastern European gulag made surplus.
