    Yugoslavian 8mm surplus ammo?

    Have a chance to get some of this stuff for about half the price of current production ammo. It's also loaded on stripper clips, which is an added bonus. I know it's corrosive but is it any good? Anyone have experience shooting it?

    Thanks, Scott


    Same as this stuff.

    Cool! Thank you.

    I will shoot it out of my Spanish M43 if I get some.

    Good stuff. I stocked up on some of that and a pile of Romanian. Shot all the yugo through my mg42 without any ammo issues.

    I also have some cases of it - remember the primers being little hard, but no issues with the ammo. Issue with one K98 not always striking primer hard enough, but
    worked fine in the others.

    I agree with Buck, primers were harder than the Romanian I've got.

    Any hard primer issue can usually be fixed by getting a new firing pin spring for your rifle
