.30 cents a round (.299 cents technically). Not bad I suppose. Sort of negates how AKs and the like used to be cheap to shoot though.

There's a guy on another forum that actually reloads his spent steel casings.

Stay tuned? We may end up that way too!

(EDIT) That may also be an early indication of part of what are the costs of doubling the currency supply in under a year, by working the printing presses 24/7 too? I doubt anything once considered cheap or plentiful will be so from this point onward.

I sure wouldn't buy any of that Wolf. Don't much care for that stuff.

Wolf MC hollowpoints use the Uly 8m3 bullet which fragments very well out to 100yds and tumbles quickly if it doesn't fragment. What do you not like about them, have you shot any since they went to the polymer coating? Usually it doesn't matter what kind of ammo you put through AK and SKS rifles, it all functions about the same.

As I recall most weapons that fired 7.62X39 L/B, seemed to prefer that their ammo had been left in a muddy ditch or a wet tunnel in order to operate properly? About the only material the cartridge case couldn't be made of was Bamboo? But I'm certain that even that was likely tried at one time or another?

My AK eats Wolf, Wolf and more Wolf. Maybe 6-7000 rounds since 2001. Way too expensive these days when you were accustomed to paying $65 a thousand back then.
