    Default Iranian 8mm ammo

    Has anyone used this ammo from Samco?

    (Iranian Mfg., 1950's, Brass cases, FMJ, 198 gr.,
    Lead core, Non-corrosive, Berdan, Packed
    Loose, 5 rows of 200 rds each, 1000 rds in
    sealed zinc ined wooden case. Wt of case 70 lbs
    29.9 Cents per Round)

    What's your opinion of it? The non-corrosive aspect has me intrigued.

    I would treat the ammo as corrosive, no matter what "they" say.

    I have shot Egyptian and Turk 8mm and cleaned my bore immediately with Windex at the range while the barrel was still hot.

    Ditto really non-corrosive out of Iran in the 50's, but corrosive out of east europe in the 70's
    multi-corrosivo, for sure

    I wonder if the primers are reliable or if they are hard like the Yugo surplus...

    The ad says the 8mm is corrosive. It is the 30-06 that they are touting as non-corrosive.

    The ad was changed. Last week it read "non-corrosive", as I pasted above. Oh well...

    a gun is a tool the same as a hammer, chainsaw, wrench etc.... its only as dangerous as the person holding it.

    Funny how they didn't change their PRICE when they changed from N/C to corrosive......
