It may have changed or I could have been mistaken but I'm pretty sure it was originally written as extending through September 2017.

At any rate, I've got a case and a half of it left, it's proven accurate and reliable in all 3 of my AKs, and it's what I have in my self defense readiness magazines.

The only downside is that the 100 round packaging with the plastic spacers is a pain in the ass to store and access.

I hate the plastic spacers. Monarch uses them now too.

Remove packaging, discard, store loose in 30 or 50 cal ammo can. Problem solved.

You would think if Sam has enough pull to get the 8M3 made, he could have had it packaged in the small 20rd. boxes; Maybe not though.

He did mention that Uly does not do lacquer cases anymore, which sucks.

I think some ammo manufactures (Winchester) use their packaging to make it look like you are getting more than you actually are. How many times have you opened a box/bottle/bag for something and it's only half full?

The Tulammo 8m3 is good ammunition, it's reliable, accurate, has an "effect" bullet, is nicely sealed and with a decent poly coat as well.

At $240/ thousand (a 3-4 cent /round premium) it's well worth keeping some around IMO.

I buy from multiple vendors online and local. SGammo is one of my preferred online vendors due to the selection of 7.62x39 they have in-stock. They ship quick and double box. I have only had good experiences with them.

Other vendors sometimes have better prices and I'll order from them, but when I want a specific item that other dealers dont carry, SGammo is where I turn.

Target Sports has Wolf Military Classic for $209.50 shipped per 1000. Good-to-go?

Indeed it is; it's Barnaul.

Targetsports is GTG and the price is very good as well.

Less than SG.

Yes, a 750 round case of Wolf MilSpec or Silver Bear 5.45 fits just right into a 50 cal can in the box, just like a 500 round case of Monarch does. Bastages...

I got 4 cans back in early summer. Ammo looks great but haven't shot any of it yet. Only "complaint" is Sam was talking in his emails how it was going to sell out any day... so I got one last can... and that was like 4 months ago now lol

Just got a case of 8M3 and half the boxes were trashed. The outside pkg was in great shape. The plastic spacers were crap. Tossed the boxes and plastic and it all fit loose in .50 ammo can. Issue fixed.

How are you keeping track of the lot numbers in the event of a recall or any problem with some of your ammo?

They don't! I'm not opposed to storing ammo loose in cases like this where the packaging is trashed, but most people never think to leave a flap or a box with the lot number in the can.

I have seen many times where perfectly good ammo was valued substantially less because it had been removed from its original packaging and the make, lot number and even quantity could not be verified.

Bottom line is unless the package is damaged or wet, leave it in the boxes it came in unless you are absolutely sure you never want to sell it or otherwise its value could be substantially impacted.

I wonder how much that 20rd box/paper wrap add's to the price of 1000 rds. If they would ship it in a big box 1000 loose like US mfg's have been doing with .223 and 9mm, I would take it, especially if it takes off $10 or so? Would you?

Due to the apparent lack of fragmentation or expansion in current testing and hunting reports I'm not buying any more 8m3 anyway.
