Ammo Overview

Quantity - 440 Rounds Per Spam Can
Manufacturer - Bulgarian Military Surplus
Bullets - 147 grain full metal jacket (FMJ)
Casings - Berdan-Primed Steel


This Bulgarian surplus ammunition, manufactured in the 1970's, is in great condition and comes sealed in its original 440 rd spam cans that it was placed in after being manufactured.. This surplus ammo features a sealant at the primer pocket as well as a sealant at the case's mouth to help prevent moisture intrusion. This ammunition is considered magnetic as the projectiles are manufactured in part with steel (bimetal jacket and mild steel core).

In case you're wondering why this ammunition has a silver tip, it's silver paint to indicate that this 7.62x54r ammunition is made with a mild steel core projectile. Don't worry, it's not classified as armor piercing.

This ammunition is corrosive but as long as you clean your rifle after use, it's a great way to provide a large savings over current production ammo as you have fun at the range.

Note: Spam can openers are not included with this product....Apparently it's hard to keep track of accessories from 30-40 years ago. Also, note that some cans may contain surface rust but this does not affect the ammo inside of the cans.

A: Unfortunately the manufacturer has not included any can openers for this 7.62x54r ammo. Usually the modern production runs of tin cased ammo from Tula's handgun line of ammo will include these openers. We have found a flat screwdriver and a hammer to be an effective and safe method for opening this can.

A: This Bulgarian surplus ammo does contain components with corrosive properties. A general cleaning of the rifle will remove any corrosive residue left behind from shooting. We have found this ammo to be consistently accurate and reliable. This is a great choice for your hunting or target practice needs.
