    I saw in my most recent SGN J&G and others listing like 1260 rounds of Polish Tokarev ammo for like $95, and case prices just a little higher for other makes of milsurp, so when I found the Romanian and unidentified milsurp at the shop in Indy I only bought one box of each at $12.95 thinking that was steep...

    UNTIL I got on the internet to order a case and found absolutely NOTHING available at all the dealers and jobbers!:eek::mad::mad:

    Is it drying up? What do you think my chances of finding a case at the Indy 1500 show next month will be, or should I stock up on the $13 stuff I found?

    Story of my life, a dollar short and a day late....:cool:

    Does anybody know who has any available besides the overpriced stuff on "Bran X" that with shipping puts me CLOSE to what I'm paying by the box now?

    I'll be darned. It has ALL dropped off the map since yesterday. It was available all over the place. Everywhere I look it is gone. Military Shooters, Centerfire Systems, J&G, AIM...everywhere. I wonder what happened?

    I'm glad I went in "halfs" on a box of this a month or so ago.

    Do a google search for that caliber. It's out there. It's pricier than it was.

    Also, be it known, ammo prices are going up 10-20% next month (May). Stock up while you can.

    I googled it and got no hits other than auction sites. The good news is FACTORY stuff is available, Winchester, S&B, Privi, etc.

    But that's not why we bought these.....:cool:

    I heard Widener's still has Polish...

    Sorry, then, YES, the answer to your question is YES, all the cheap stuff is gone. You'll have to buy the new factory stuff.

    However, my take on it is this: IF you can still buy ammo (at any price), it's cheap. The day WILL come, when you can't.

    I found this site\thread when doing a google search for "is all the 7.62x25 gone". I just bought a M57 cause the ammo has been plentiful and cheap. Now I find that it's all but gone.

    I checked a gun auction site and found ky imports. They seem to still have it at a resonable price. ~11 for a box of 70. Not as cheap as it used to be, but cheaper than the $15 bucks for 50. Just thought I'd give you guys a heads up. I did order some from them, but I have never done business with them befor so I can't vouch for thier service/products.

    It's a good find Calm...not the $5-$6 it was, but better than I am seeing elsewhere. I have talked with 2 distributors...one said they are hopeful to get more in a few months...the other said they have no idea if it will become available again.

    I bought 4 boxes...just in case...I'll let you know how it works.

    Thanks for the heads up and welcome to TFF ! Let us know how the order turns out, sounds like one of the more reasonable deals around. ( and maybe the last )

    If mil surp is gone then that is some bad news. Was the best short round deal going for years. Hope this is just a hiccup in supply :confused:

    Hope your right ,Pawn. Looks like a little rationing is in order for the foreseeable future.

    I emailed this question to Ammunition to Go, one of my favorite online vendors. They appologized for this item being out of stock and indicated that they had more ordered from their supplier.

    Hah!
    Exact same thing I did, same company, same answer! At least they know we want some. Although I suspect the new price will reflect that knowledge.

    KY Imports is a good company if I remember right. I believe they are affiliated with "Clearview Investments" which dealt with CR guns and accessories.

    I used to be on the road a lot down south and used to order and pick up from both when I was in Kentucky.

    Wouldn't you know I just ordered a TT33 Tok yesterday. I bought some for my BroomHandles but they were too hot for the 7.63X25s. I can use them up and reload.:(Good Luck
