It seems to have disappeared for some unknown reason. SOG had it listed in their recent catalog, but none actually available. Very puzzling.

It seems milsurp has dried up but wolf and s&b has commercial available and you can sometimes find winchester white box if you look hard enough.

Reloading may be an option but the brass is pricey.

Or you can wait till the vendor's find the ubiquitous "just found at back of storeroom mega pallet of 7.62x25!!!"

It's a popular round right know because of all the AR uppers and tt and cz pistols not to mention smg's so I suspect it's been pulled off the shelves to maybe drive prices up a little.

I think it'll make a come back at a higher price point in the very near future...
at least I hope like all HELL it does!!!:cry: :shades:

All 6lbs of it. :biggrin: It was about 5-1/2 but I added the scope mount and red dot. Now using the PPS41 mags it is reliable and fun to shoot but a pain to clean.

One thing folks forget, surplus ammo isn't an unlimmited supply. Once it's expended, it's gone. Purchase it when you can for a good price.
The question is, when is it gone or are importers sitting on wharehouses full waiting for a better price/profit?
I bought a lot when it was cheap and would buy more if the price was right, I love this round. I just won't pay the going price.

I have to say that when I found my carbine shot the 1953 bulgy better than the Romy I bought. Split necks and all. Then the Privy was a little more but shot better and brass to match the Romy I bought. Should have bought more.

My list shows after shooting the privy for the last two years. I need to shoot the bulgy up first and for plinking and save the good stuff for later. The Privy is much cleaner in a blowback application than the rest.

I guess I do need to see what the 52 likes as well. :rolleyes: At 10 cents a round (or less) I should have bought more but when 7.62X54r was 7 cents a round I bought a little as well. :beer:
