Default Cabelas Red Army Standard 7.62 x 39 on Sale

Cabelas has Red Army Standard 7.62 x 39, 124 Grain FMJ on Sale

https://www.cabelas.com/product/barg...2.uts?slotId=0

$4.49 for 20 Rounds (22.4 cents per round)
Free Shipping on orders over $50

Great deal if you already have some $100 for $80 Cabelas gift cards on hand (around 18 cents a round). I'm tempted to order one on eBay but not sure if it will get here in time before this expires.

Last time I ordered this I think it was the Vympel made stuff that was sealed. Anyone have any idea if this is the same?

Poly coated sounds like not Vympel.

I think you're right. If I remember correctly the Vympel Stuff was 122 or 123 grain, not 124 like this.

Course you would have to see a case stamp for sure, but look like re branded Tula to me.

Yep thatís Vympel, I donít think they have a poly coat 124grain offering so if you see it advertised (assuming itís correctly listed) thereís a good chance itís Vympel.

Nice, that does look like Vympel. The Purple bullet seal and red primer seal is a dead give away too.

Interesting that it's a totally different round in the picture.

OOS. Basically the same price as GT though, so not a huge miss.

We get it up here at Cabelas occasionally for $4.49. I've put away some, shot some.

It's run just fine in every rifle. $4.49 is a lot better price than the usual $5.99 per 20 in Alaska for steel case.

G.T. is lacquer coated. It's also a FMJBT as this Red Army though.

Aim has the same ammo listed and states that it's made by Vympel.

It’s definitely Vympel.. I just bought a case, and it was shipped in the original cardboard box that said Vympel on the side. The ammo is identical to the pic. I have some older Red Army that is different, so they obviously rebrand.

Red Army Standard sucks! I had quite a few primers blow out and the ammo is dirty. VERY DIRTY. I think they are Tula rejects. Stick with Golden Tiger or Silver Bear ammo...

The OP is from April.

Is this stuff STILL on sale? I haven't been to my local Cabela's in months, they never have anything interesting.

The link in the OP shows it back in stock but at the regular price of $5.99.

$5.99 for 7.62x39? Unless itís the Chinese crap thatís a terrible price. Wally world has theirs at 4.50 a box; i tend to think thatís a crap price, BUT all my FUDD friends gladly pay that much for their ďone boxĒ they buy on the way to the range so it must be okay

Yeah, I was replying to the person asking if it was still on sale. I think their usual price used to be $4.99 not long ago and they usually have free shipping for orders over $50-$100. I haven't bought ammo from Cabelas in a while.

Had the lacquer sealed RAS ammo at my local Cabelas today.

$5.99 a box. I'd pay that for the sealed ammo.
