    anyone notice that lately it seems that it is becoming more scarce for the cheap mil sup. ball in the 440 round spam cans. I used to buy a 440 round can for $39.99 at a local army and navy store. Also used to see it at the gunshows a lot. Now I can't even find cheap stuff in the shotgun news. Sure I could buy more expensive Sellier and Bellot, or Wolf Soft Point, or even Winchester USA brand now, but I like to blast bowling pins and other junk with the cheap mil sup. ball ammo.

    I gotta keep these Nagants fed... They're getting hungry...

    The latest flyer, #135, from SOG shows it for 46.20 per 440 rd tin or 880 rds for 85.80. Then there would be shipping charges too.

    Century has both 340rd and 440 rd tins of Albanian x54r, for about $34, and $44. per tin. I just got 2 tins of it, not real good looking stuff, but my M44's like it and my 91/59 loves it.

    AIM has both ALbanian and Russian in their latest flyer if I remember right, I was going to go over there and pick some up soon, I'm running low on that good Albanian myself.

    About all I see at shows lately is that Czech Silvertip stuff, I bought about 120 rounds or so to try out, and as much as I hate most green lacquer steel stuff, it didn't seem like it was on there too thick, and it shoots well from my 44s and 91/30s, I just don't shoot it if the chamber is really hot, and not much at a time...
