Any idea on how much 7.62x54r is left?

Wondering how much longer the surplus spam cans will be coming in? Seems like it would dry up at some time, unless they have millions of the cans stored in warehouses or something. Hope this is the case as I love shooting my M39s. Have been buying the early 70s production Bulgarian and Russian silver tip light ball. Hope to keep getting it for a while.

I'd guess we'll see it for a long time. Isn't it still in current production?

What are you buying now a hundred rounds? One spam can?

It is here now and is (or was a few days ago) CHEAP! Load the credit card, borrow some money....do what ever you need to and buy four or five cases of this ammo and you will not have to worry for a LOMG TIME.

If you don't shoot it ....this will turn out to be one of the best investments you ever made.

I'm sure it will keep coming in as the eastern bloc will never switch calibers.
Obviously the price will steadily increase.

I went ahead and just ordered 2 880 round cases of Bulgarian 71 production from SGammo. They have it for $137 per case. Cost $50 for shipping to CO. Figure I will have enough to last for many years. As long as the price stays this low, will still be adding more cans every month.
