    Shine a torch down one of your fire cases and see if there is a single primer hole centered in the bottom? If yes, it should be good for reloading.

    Pretty sure these aren't reloadable. I have shot quite a few of them - @Beavis can you clarify?

    It's good ammo , but that price is a bit steep , going rate for these crates was about $750 a year ago for 900Rds , so this price has doubled.

    Better off Buying Prvi or the like at this price.

    It's Berdan primed. I've been told the brass is quite brittle as well, not unheard of for it to splot longitudinal upon firing, though I haven't experienced this in the 500 or so I've fired.

    Good luck finding anymore crates of it, isn't not nearly as common as it used to be, same goes for 7.62x54r or 6.5x55, surplus ammo is near non existent here....

    Eh, I've got two crates, I know of someone with about 15 crates.

    It's out there , people just hold onto it.

    I don't think we ever got surplus crates of 6.5x55.

    Most of this old surplus ammo isn't even worth firing through milsurps in good condition anyway.

    How about we just let him sell his ammunition. Carry on.
