    Anyone know of any great deals on bulk 5.45x39? Sportsmansguide has some but they are sold out of the big bulk boxes right now. Of course I was always seeing this ammo every where and now I order an AK-74 and can't find any good cheap deals :scream:.

    Looks like the 5.45 will be getting up to the price of 5.56
    D@mn Neal always gotta ruin my fun :comfort:

    Looks like I will be placing an order for 600 rounds through sportsmans guide and then setting a good chunk o change to grab as much at the next gun show that I can.....

    Looks like Bryan_Aim suggests sticking with 7.62x39 glad I have the VZ and AMD

    Another grim morsel out of that thread was that on page 3 he claims that Century won the rights to the Korean Garands! That freakin sucks as well!

    But at least they will be finally coming home.

    Yea thats very true.

    So the Wolf Military Classice 5.45x39 is .22/round which is .05/round more and not corrosive, I am ok with that.

    Well I just ordered a pack of 300 from SG, it was $47 shipped, going to look around at the gun shows for spam cans now.

    Not to be Debbie Downer but if the importers ever stop shipping this stuff,there is not one domestic manufacturer of 5.45x39(that I know of anyway).

    Correct! Hornady offers steel match but its made with imported steel primed cases. if imports were cut off, you/Hornady would be screwed. At least until domestic manufacturers saw a demand and started production.

    We are a country based on money. If the importation stops, there will be several domestically that start to produce it. Forget about it being 12¢-15¢ a round, though. Then again, it will likely be boxer brass cases, though. That's a plus.
