you can never have too much 7.62 handy
For dispaching zombies I prefer a 12 guage with 00 buckshot, but 7.62 works well in the roof mounted machine gun when giant man eating scorpions attack. I'm so glad I picked up as much 7.62 as I did when military surplus was so cheap.

Those days are gone. See what happens to the price of ammo if the President gets re-elected.

Re: El Tortuga

Main reason I havent shot in so long...gone are the days of buying L1a1 (?) surplus 7.62 x 51 for pennies a round.
I remember going into the local shop with $125 and having to use the hand truck to carry out 4 cans of ammo 7.62 x 39 and 7.62 x 51

I've got a hex receiver from 1929 I think. I've also purchased ammo from S&G. Good prices.

Since I started the hijack ( I mounted a "machine gun box" [that is so politically correct in this**** society outside of the kool skoolie community] in a bus)
I will stop this hyjack....right now!!!
Ever fired a hk51? :evilgrin: icon...
Tommorrow starts a very long 3 days of busting my azz to be ready for "the 3 hour tour..." 1 week in the bus camping with friends....its a guys week ,fourwheeling gold panning and kayaking on the lake(might be "adult beverages partakin in)...it will be nice to actually relax
.
.
My buddy that's going with me hasn't seen the bus(except a few pics) today at work he was saying how he was about ready to camp for a week.....I. was like "bro' we're not going "camping".....we're going Glamping...everyone else will be camping
