I haven't purchased any in a long time, but I keep "in touch" with some of the suppliers. It seems like the average price per round for commercial "Soviet bloc" manufactured ammo is on the order of $.16 to $.22 depending on brand, shipping cost , etc. If I was buying now, I think I'd go with either AIM Surplus or Ammoman (historically I've purchased from both without any problems).

I bet the recoil spring came loose and it fired out of battery.
My rifle was shipped the spring un locked in the butt stock,
If you are not careful and you use the flip up plate the recoil rod can whack your collar bone.

I have pinned mine in place. one good bounce and the spring is loose.

Heres how it happens you put one in the chamber Fire the case ejects and due to the lack of recoil rod spring pressure the chamber closes and then springs back. If you have light primers or a protruding firing pin. BANG F^%K ouch.

when I discovered the problem the primers had light dents in them.

If it is yours open the cover( If you can ) and cycle the action. you will see what I am talking about.

Mongo like candy.


KB actually. Fired out of battery and sent lots of small pieces of brass into Brass Catchers hand (hint the name). In this case a cartridge was torn in half leaving the neck in the chamber. The next round was loaded however the bolt could not close....yet fired anyway.
