    Need some help. I'm looking to buy some Romanian or Yugo 7.62x25mm Tokarev ammo. Everywhere seems to be sold out. Anyone know of a place that sells it?

    Thank you for the help,
    I am looking for stuff made in the 80's from Romania, the old surplus stuff, the Polish is fine, but the Romanian is alot better.

    Where ever you get it just make sure it is not Machine gun ammo.

    Ain't no such thing. Just an old uninformed internet rumor with some bad bulgarian surplus. Sub guns take the same ammo as the pistols. Some of the pistol ammo was loaded on strippers for use in Czech sub guns, but it was still just pistol ammo. Don't worry.

    Thanks for the response. While new to Tok ownership, I am pretty familiar with the history of most 20th century military cartridges and couldn't recall a specific SMG load. But I figured it's better to ask than have an unpleasant surprise.

    Always a good idea with all this surplus floating around!

    Indeed. I bought some Indian .303 years ago that was quite dodgy.

    Not to worry, it is all subgun ammo, usually packed in 70 or 72 round boxes for PPSh41, but it is only loaded to about 35,000 psi and the pistols handle it fine, hey were designed to. Actually the TT-33 will handle higher pressures than the PPSh because it uses a locked (very well locked) breech, while the subguns are all simple blowbacks. The problem with blowbacks is that the case sticking in the chamber will prevent function, so design pressures are lower. Most loadings will chrono around 1500 fps in the TT-33 barrel, about 1850 fps in the 10.5 inch subgun barrel.
