    40 year old milsurp ammo for .50 a round? I'm not familiar with Portuguese ammo from back then. Burdan primers? Corrosive powder? Chances are it is Burdan which is almost pointless to try to reload for.
    I can reload used Boxer brass with known non corrosive powder and projectiles for a lot less than $.50 and make match grade ammo via weight sorting projectiles and brass, and hand-loading powder.
    A quick search of milsurp ammo puts the price around $.35, and new Boxer primed around $.70.

    No thread crapping.
    And that is about the going price for Port, Belgian and German 7.62 NATO
    I can find surplus for .38 and round but it's linked and looks like it was stored in a swamp.

    But none of that matters. Don't like the price send a PM with an offer.

    Sorry about that, classified ad, not opinion thread. You are correct. I would still like to know if it is Burdan primed or not.

    Yes, Port is Berdan primed ammo.
    Vacuum sealed heavy plastic battle packs, 30 year old ammo always looks new and shiny when I open one.

    His asking price is just about right...



    FYI- I just plowed through several hundred rounds of ‘84 Malaysian 7.62x51 MILSURP.... probably stored in a hot bunker for years.... berdan primered, non-corrosive. Every round shot minute of man just fine

    Most euro MILSURP is berdan primered and will generally have better QA/QC than South Pacific countries will... and for those of you in Rio Linda, CA .... Portugal is in Europe..... :D

    That's because the European ammo is 7.62 NATO, same specs as Lake City 7.62 NATO.
    If it doesn't have the circle cross stamp it's just a 7.62x51 and doesn't meet NATO standards.
