    7.62x39 ammom needed ASAP

    Hi guys, I NEED to burn my Ak once more before it has to go..... who wants to sell me a couple hundred rounds for it?
    I burnt all mine up last weekend and need to do a night shoot with it for the camera.
    Kinda urgent so if anyone around the north shore has a stack of very soon to be surplus to requirements ammo then please pm me.
    Cheers.

    So am I right, from what I've read, it's technically illegal to use 'prohibited' firearms So everyone with a stockpile can't do anything with it?

    Pulled 7.62x39 bullets are fine for .303s, but .303 surplus is currently too cheap to make it worth the effort.

    That's probably what I will get. Either that or a Howa Mini action.

    Or a Mossberg that takes AR mags and put a 30 cal barrel on it.
    Overkill is still dead.

    And where are you getting 303 for under $1.50 per pop?.
    A clever fella and there are plenty here could take a 303, shorten the chamber mod the extractor and magazine and have a bolt gun to dispose of that ammunition quite quickly.

    Anyone got any feedback on the Ruger American 7.63x39's?

    Bought 100 x .303 HXP from GC a few weeks back, $0.99 each.

    The 7.62x39 conversion of .303 is less sexy when you only have 10 round mags - unless perhaps you can get it to accept SKS 10rd stripper clips.

    I was thinking of getting my hands on a drum mag for my tactical .303

    Then I learnt those sad pricks wont let a bolt action have more than ten shots. Boo.
