    It's about that time to refill the ammo crates, looking for that good ol' russian classic the 7.62x54R.

    Will take:
    Loose, boxed, spam can, plastic baggie, whichever.

    Any corrosive surplus, commercial berdan steel/brass, or commercial boxer brass.

    Any country, any manufacturer, any headstamp.

    Won't take:
    ...well, pretty much unless it's flattened, covered in poo, or visibly damaged, I'll take it. (poo-covered is negotiable.:laugh:)

    Would honestly rather buy local than online, but $.45/round of surplus that i can get online at $.21/round... kinda discouraging..

    Will listen and respond to all offers.

    Am I correct in thinking that you want used corrosive and berdan primed brass? I thought that reloading was only possible with boxer primed ammunition.

    Berdan Brass cases can and still are re-primed and reloaded by people. Boxer brass is simply "easier" to deprime and get primers for.

    Boxer is more mass-produced, and has the single flash hole, Berdan is typically mil-spec, and has 2 small flash holes, which some say actually helps the powder burn better/quicker/evenly, allowing better/consistant firing.

    Berdan is a bit labor-intensive in depriming without proper attachments for a press, but it's doable.

    So yes, I want berdan brass and berdan primers too. lol
