    Chinese 9mm

    10 or 15 years ago I bought a case of 124gr FMJ 19x19, brass cased. I got to wondering why the box said 26KG for what I thought was 1,000 rounds.
    I also wanted to know if the ammo was in a steel can. There were 2k rounds, and they were in 50 round boxes, in a plastic bag. The date on the cases is 93, the caliber and some marks that I think might be the factory. Just a wild guess on that last one. I had refurbed the 30 cal cans I got from etsy and was able to get 18 boxes into each can. A note on the cans: I would never have bought them face to face or at a gun show. I put the ammo in the two best two of the four cans. There isn't any name like 'Norinco' or anything on the boxes. Everything on the boxes is in English. I remember reviews on this ammo back then, only fair. I'll shoot the four boxes sometime and see how it does. The box in the picture is what the ammo came in.

    The ammo from China was all Norinco.
    I think I remember the red label as POLYTEC. ( they were a branch of Norinco.
    There was several small factories that made the same ammo.
    They just put different labels on them.
    I use to get a brown truck every week or so.
    I had a truck full delivered every week or every other week.
    They would just back it up and unload it in my garage.
    I don't have a clue how much of it, but it was a lot.
    Over half of it from each delivery was sold to other dealers.
    Usually most of it gone in a few days...................
    It was so, so cheap to buy in bulk and free shipping.

    I still have some of it. still banded in wooden crates. (not for sale).

    It was not always the best ammo, but for blasting ammo it was great.

    I sold a new SKS rifle, 1440 rounds of ammo, including Texas sales tax for $100 out the door.

    The good old days again.

    I had the empty wooden crates stack high to the ceiling.
    So once a month (usually the last WED of the month I would put them out front of the house.
    The craft ladies would come and get them.
    The street would be full of cars/trucks.
