Haven't seen this stuff in awhile. I ordered some more as I'm down to my last 3,500 rounds or so!

Be sure to click on the link for additional info on shooting this slightly-corrosive stuff.

Update: Unfortunately, Syd e-mailed later in the day thanking me for my order and saying that he had no Russian repacked .45 after all and would not be receiving additional stocks. sad.gif

This is the same stuff I've been shooting in my '28 Bridgeport for a couple years. Absolutely surefire, a bit on the hot side (my Thompson loves it!!) and brass cased so it wont foul stuff up or snap off your ejector! It DOES make a bit of smoke (I suspect some of this is oxidized lead from the base of the bullet, so make sure the smoke doesn't blow right at you) but other than that, this stuff runs great!
How much does this company get to ship this??
I've bought it for 95-100 cash and carry.....my guess is about twenty bucks to ship a can?? (I believe a can is 39 Lbs??)

Let us know shoipping $$ as the website doesn't say.....Thanks!
