    have been under a lot of pressure from low sales up until
    this latest panic run. If the lefties get the chance they

  4. KLIN – TON I banned all Norinco (China North Industries – their state armory/ammo mfg.) imports, in February ’94.

    THAT was to screw us civilian gun owners 😡 ; we’ve never been dependent as a nation (our military) on Chinese arms OR ammo.

    Norinco firearms (with the EXCEPTION of their 1911 knockoff, which sucked OUT LOUD) and ammo was actually quite good, and inexpensive. I STILL miss it!

  5. Small arm ammo for our military has never been produced by foreign suppliers to my knowledge.

    But my all time favorite 7.62X51 (.308) surplus is South African. I’ve got a lot of Lake City too, but my go to is the SA. The Hirtenberger military surplus is excellent also but hard to find today. I don’t trust the Indian stuff at all.

  6. I bought some 9mm Egyptian ammo once. ONCE.
    About every third shell split and had difficulty extracting.

    Still have a box of it around here, somewhere … and I no longer own a 9!
