    I just recently sold one case of South African at $850.00.... this is not that ad.

    I am selling the rest of my South African ammo (3 cases and 1 battle pack as of: 30 APR)

    $1,000.00 per case (or $.79 per round)
    $120.00 per battle pack (or $.95 per round)

    I think these prices are fair compared to some of the craziness that have been going on and nationally speaking the average price is about $.98 per round before delivery

    Only trades I would be interested in are:

    1. A tricked out Ruger 10/22 with a threaded barrel (tactical solutions, KIDD etc..) and primo aftermarket internals without the Thumbhole stock more inclined to Houge Overmold. Not interested in 10/22 take downs.

    2. Ruger MkII with a threaded tactical solutions upper

    4. Powder Coat/Curing oven (approximate dimensions 2-3' wide x 2-3' deep x 4-6' High)

    6. Tig/Mig welder (Miller preferred, no harbor freight or Lincoln)

    Thank you in advance for not offering a trade that wasn't listed.

    As brought to my attention: the South Africans did not taylor their military to the logisticians and accountants, but instead the soldier. A soldier carried a FAL battle rifle with 7, 20 round magazines with a battle load of 140 rounds. There were 9 soldiers to a squad, so the South African 7.62 Nato battle back has 140 rounds to a pack and 9 packs to a case. One case would resupply a squad. These battle backs are highly desirable as the material for the pack is a very thick rubber/plastic like in nature. Extremely durable and waterproof.

    Oooops.... forgot to mention I can meet face to face along the I-5 from Tacoma headed south as far as Albany. Cash/non-firearm trade in Oregon.

    I have seen SA and other mil surplus ammo with corrosion and nasty condition. Are you confident that is not the case here with your ammo?

    Thx :thumbup:

    What SA ammo was corrosive? The only corrosive 7.62 NATO came out of India, Pakistan and eastern Europe that I know of. I've personally shot over 3000 rounds of SA out of my HK91, all my FALs, M1A, Galil, Saiga and a Valmet. I have never seen any of the SA as being corrosive.

    I'd let you inspect my rifles but the Saiga and HK91 are sold. The Valmet wasn't mine.
