.308 at just over $0.50/round

…at Ammoman. I’ve seen negative comments about this outfit on various boards, but I ordered a thousand rounds of frangible .223 from them a couple years ago and was very pleased with the transaction. Free shipping, too!

308 / 7.62X51 GERMAN NATO AMMO 147 GRAIN FMJBT NATO BALL
NATO HEADSTAMP
1990’s PRODUCTION – 100% NON-CORROSIVE

SOME ROUNDS WILL HAVE SOME TARNISH THAT WILL NOT AFFECT FUNCTION

WE OFFER A 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE ON THIS ITEM AND IT’S LISTED ON THE RETURN POLICY

DAG MANUFACTURE AND THOSE OF YOU THAT KNOW THIS AMMO WILL AGREE. IT’S FANTASTIC !

BRASS CASED – BERDAN PRIMED – LEAD CORE

500 ROUNDS PER USGI AMMO CAN
LOOK AT THE POSTED PICS

That’s 4 cents/round better than the Radway Green I bought a while back — actually more than 4 cents, as I paid shipping for the RG. Wish I had the funds….

OTOH, I’m definitely saving up for a Dillon press as I think that’s the only way I’ll ever be able to afford to fire my Garands:

$2.24/round for a 192-round Spam Can of .30-06 Ball…. granted it’s “AP,” but still….

    I bought 2000 of the DAG in early March. Headstamped ’93. It is de-linked machinegun ammo with significant verdigris corrosion on the brass (obviously deposited by rusting machinegun links). About 25% showed no evidence of corrosion; almost 50% had a little green/black corrosion, matching the pressure points from the links; the remaining 25%+ had extensive corrosion – covering over a third of the case in a few cases. (Yes I counted it as I segregated it.)

    Yet in all, each cartridge I tested, even the worst corroded, dropped into a Wilson case gauge with no binding or hang-up.

    Bullets are steel alloy.

    If you order some and don’t like it, Eric at Ammoman will take it back and refund your purchase price (return shipping is on you, though). Very solid operation.

    I’ve bought ammo from Ammoman.com several times and never had a problem – they seem like a solid outfit.

    This .308 would be a great deal, if it was Boxer primed, but being unreloadable, I’m probably going to pass.

    Ammoman is fine. I’ve bought a LOT of ammo from them. They deliver what they advertise, AND their prices include shipping (for any order over 5 boxes).

    J&G Sales of Prescott, AZ has “POF” headstamp 7.62 NATO, 90’s manufacture, in belts of 250 rds for $150.

    That’s 60 cents per round and you have to delink it, too, but don’t say there isn’t any milsurp out there…

    J&G also has some water-damaged .40 S&W for $75/500, sold for component use only. The components will be the brass cases and the frangible copper bullets, and if you don’t count your investment in a puller, this is a helluva deal.
