    Well? I want to start shooting the M76 regular. I can get standard Yugo 8mm for 3.17 to 3.99 / box and the sniper is 10.00 a box.

    I have no idea s there wasn't any "Sniper Grade" Yugoslav 8 mm ammo when I owned 8 mm rifles. Try a box of each and find out.

    I was about to order at least 30 boxes...

    I'm still thinking about just getting Prvi so I can reload it.

    Cool

    Mine tears up brass, tosses it into the next county seems like.

    Still, 8mm is out there and ain't going anywhere. The M76 is literally the largest caliber for an AK that can possibly be built. Expect to pay more. Frankly, it's a real interesting gun. God help any zombie!!

    It's strong enough to withstand full power 8mm. Shooting turkish surplus is hilarious.

    Turkish surplus especially the nickel plated jacketed stuff is high pressure and it will burn your barrel out fast. Most of the old Turkish is machine gun ammo in many cases. no pun intended
