    Hmm, I am going to have to count properly when I open another tin!

    the only thing that removes corrosive ammo is water, so ive been told

    ballistol and water mix sprayed down the barrel after a shoot makes cleaning a breeze


    which reminds me i havent cleaned the AK after two shoots, and now i feel bad

    OK so I've read up a bit and now understand that water is needed to dissolve the corroded salts.

    I haven't seen the round tins, only rectangular ones, with 750 rounds

    Just an Fyi, I bought some 7.62 surplus the other day (120 rounds of Norinco) and the guy behind the counter opened each brown package and counted out the rounds.

    His reason was, that they are always short and after counting we were in fact 2 rounds short.

    I also had to re look. But as a matter of fact all the ak ammo we got at the shop is 720 round tins.

    Our range ak has no corrosion but gets shot daily so not sure if that would just clean and re contaminate the barrel leaving too little time to mess with the steel.

    I have an AK and want to get the 1440 round cases.

    So a clean after each shoot would just be better i guess.

    Hi Guys.
    Last time I bought it was from Dave Sheer Guns and it came in a 'large sardine can' containing, I think, 750 or so rounds.
    Have a great and safe Holiday Season.

    That was the previous batch. The current batch comes in green crates containing 1440 rounds.
