Customer Reviews

De-linked a few dozen rounds of this, put them on stripper clips and shot it out of my K98. I did not have any problems with this ammo. There is some tarnish on a few of the rounds towards the top but it appears to be tacky oil from the links. It did not appear to effect the function of the ammo at all. I did not find a need to clean up any of the ammo. The ammo seemed to burn about as cleanly as any other I've used thus far in this rifle. Seems to be about the same as the boxed Yugo surplus I bought from another dealer some time ago.
Customers complain abut "light" primer strikes with this ammunition from Yugoslavia. This ammunition was loaded as machine gun ammunition. It has heavier than normal, machine gun, primers. Many older rifles, 50 plus year old have the original firing pin spring. The quick fix is to go to Wolff Springs and order an extra power spring. An unexpected benefit is shorter lock time, possible accuracy improvement. I'm sure the experts at Wolff would be happy to assist. Ammo Guy Aim High! It allows for bullet drop.
Ammo is exactly as described with top 1-2 rows tarnished. Ran about 400 rounds through a full auto 1919. Had one round stop the gun. Great ammunition for the price and great to have low cost ammo already linked up.
I have enjoyed shopping at SGAmmo for years and I will continue to shop here for many more. The ammo I recieved from this lot was a 1961 manfacture. I would NOT purchase this again. The product is as described. I don't blame SGAmmo the ammo failures. I have 2 different WW2 Mausers, Yugo M24/47 and a Chinese Chiang Kai-shek. I have used cheep, expensive, steel, and brass cased 8mm ammo in both of them successfully. However neither of them liked this ammo. Out of 50 founds the following happened. All failed to fire the first time pulling the trigger due to light primer strikes. It looks like to me the dome shaped primers are slightly recessed into the cases. 1 round I had to cock my Mauser 5 times. 4 rounds I had to cock it 3 times. All of the others I had to cock twice. In every case there was about a 1 to 2 second delay in ignition. Long story short I will buy different Mauser ammo from SGAmmo in the future.
Bought one can to test the waters. Arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased. As noted with other reviews the first 15 or so will have some tarnish; though they clean with minimal effort. Packaging was done very well especially when you consider that heavier packages usually receive all the gentleness of a cinder block in a dryer during the shipping process. Absolutely no complaints when it comes to packaging and condition of the can/ammo. Rest assured you will get what you see and pay for. True professionals dedicated to their business and craft. Will most definitely order from again.
Bought several cans of this awhile ago. Finally got to try it today in my full auto 1919A4 that has a 8mm set up. Shot two cans and it never missed a round. Shot and fed great, just got another 10 cans!
Very happy with my can. 1961 dated and overall pretty clean. Honestly I think a lot of the “tarnish” is just old congealed/stained oil from the links. All of the black stuff on mine came off with just some Rem-Oil and a rag.
Received my can quickly and well packaged. Upon opening, I noticed the first 15 or so rounds had very light tarnish and the rest nice and clean. Very pleased and will buy more. Thanks SG!!
Mine didn’t look near as good as the ones in the photos. I probably just got a bad can, the tarnish was three layers deep in mine. Probably 60-70 rounds that were badly stained/tarnished. I’m not quite sure what the tarnish is since the links are not rusted. Tried cleaning some and found quite a few projectiles that I could spin with my fingers. I’ve been very happy in the past with SG so I’ll just count this as my rotten luck. You never know if you will be a winner or loser with surplus. This time I lost. But, at 40 cents a round, I didn’t get hurt too bad.
Got my ammo, first 20 rounds were heavily tarnished, the rest of the case is nice and shiny, no noticeable defects. With a green scrubby and some hoppes 9, the tarnished ones cleaned up decently. Havent had a chance to shoot any.
