7.62 Stripper clips?

I've been looking for 7.62 NATO stripper clips lately. When I find them they are fairly pricey compared to what I'd expect. I have some 6.5 Sweed clips, they wok with the spoon on BM59 mags, but they have to jump a gap, and Im not sure they would work with the FAL mag loader, or with the receiver mounted guide on the BM59 (Haven't got it back from Shuffs yet).

Is there some where that carries the NATO clips at a decent price?

Thanks

Could probably score some if you posted on the marketplace. Surely Some of the guys have some hoarded from their Aussie ammo. I think I have a box of commercial 10 round ones if they interest you, probably some Aussie ones too.

I bought a pack of them for my M1A from Fulton Armory. They are nice and work smoothly in the M1A.

I"ll check Fulton.

EDIT: Humm, they are still $1.50 ea from Fulton
That just seems really high as I can buy 5.56 ones by the hundred. And I got my 6.5 sweed ones in boxes of 40 for pennies. I just figured that being a NATO standard item there would be millions of them out there and pricing would be comparable to the 5.56 or 6.5 ones.
would cost $300 for enough clips to load 1000 rounds. I liked the Idea of having them ready to load quickly into a mag, and just topping up in prone with the BM59.

They have never been pennies, at least not that ive ever seen.
Even the blued Chinese made knock-off's tapco and others had at one time were a lot more than pennies,,,and sold out in short order.
Nothing strange about it,,try finding clips for the M1 carbine, 303 smle or a 9mm sub gun.

That said,,,I'd trade some even up for those cheap 6.5 ones,,,I'll even throw in some new FAL mag loaders gratis for the shipping..

I got the 6.5 Sweed clips for around $15 per box of 40 years ago. I think I'll hold on to them as they appear to work with 7.62. I'm just going to have to slowly faze in some 7.62 ones.

Somewhere I've got a 40mm ammo can with a bunch of them in it. I think the last ones I sold pretty cheap to somebody here on the files. Lemme look around.

If Ghost doesn't take them, I will.
