Default East German M43

Went to my LGS and he had multiple boxes of E German M43 for $8 a box. I didn't need up buying any, but should I have? Is that a pretty decent price for M43?

I saw that ammo when I was at that shop not long ago. It's good ammo but at .40rd its a waste of money given the current price of plinkin ammo.

As long as you are talking about the Steel core, full metal jacket stuff, it is the most accurate 7.62x39 I have come across. It is corrosive.

Much of the East German ammo had bullets pulled and replaced by Lead core bullets.

That price seems a bit high for corrosive surplus.

Plain 20rnd white box with black letters? No, they have been reloaded with lead core and are overpriced.

Salmon colored boxes? Yes.
