    7mm Mauser surplus ammo?

    I have never seen it but, was there ever a plentiful supply of 7mm Mauser ammo available? Just wondering.

    I don't know how much they may have had but I bought some from Samco a few years ago before they went out of business.

    I don't think they said where it came from. I can tell you it was all Remington head stamped.

    About 4- 5 years ago went on a 7mm mauser ammo buying spree.. They were in almost all the gunshows in bags and cheap.. It was all south American Surplus.. The countries that I picked up the most was Chile and Dominican Republic. Had no issues with this ammo, went bang all the time, it was dated in the 1950s. Never tested if the ammo was corrosive.. but cleaned as if it was.

    There was a lot of 7mm from Chile. Not sure if it’s corrosive either but it’s real clean. Haven’t used any of mine yet. Not many 7 mm rifles in the pile
