Unlike some Soviet surplus ammunition, Sellier & Bellot’s Czech-made ammo uses industry standard reloadable brass cases and Boxer primers. Each box holds 50 rounds.
Sellier & Bellot is one of the oldest names in the firearms business. Founded in 1825 by Louis Sellier, S&B got its start manufacturing percussion caps for the Austrian Empire in vast quantities. The company has survived the downfall of its first major client, the establishment (and dis-establishment) of Czechoslovakia, and nationalization by Soviet-backed communist governments followed by privatization at the end of the Cold War. Through immense political upheaval, the company has managed to continually produce S&B branded ammo for almost 200 years. Shooters regard S&B ammo as every bit the equal of cartridges produced anywhere in the world—and the price advantage is just gravy!
