    I've been lucky finding non-corrosive 7.62x54r at a few local shops lately. Luck of the draw, I guess. Keep looking. Here is a great site for finding what you are looking for.

    You can sort by price per round, and in stock.

    I just sent you a PM/conversation to get some locally, and it's nice brass cased stuff.

    Apparently the primers on a lot of the surplus Russian stuff is corrosive, but several local gun shops up here still carry it. Look around for another local place, and I'm sure you will find some. I don't think that caliber was affected much by the shortage.

    Yea, that'll really put the hurt on all the .308's etc. sitting in the racks waiting to be sold by them by just being there. That dood is an idiot and should just keep his mouth shut when it comes to "justifying" what he is actually selling/pimping/not selling/can't get etc.
