Loose boxes and LOTS of Space

Date:May 13, 2014
Ordered the 500rd with 1 box. Each 20rd box was loose with over half the dry box open to rattle around in. End result was 4 boxes (80 rds) spilled out and loose with a few more ready to break. A few dented noses here and there, but I know the ammo is good from previous orders without the dry box. This products needs to have some sort of filler in the dry box to keep ammo in place.

Herters 7.62x39 154 grain ammo

Date:July 20, 2010
The price is good especially if you catch it on sale. The problem with this ammo or wolf ammo which this is not is that the russian manufactures set the primers deeper than what we are use to. This coupled with the fact that the primers are much harder than commercial primers can cause obvious problems. If you shoot this stuff thruogh an A.K. or S.K.S. or similar rifle of former Soviet block oragin you will not have any problems at all. If you shoot if through an AR-15 or Ruger Mini 30 you will need to modify them slightly. In the case of the Mini 30 there is a after market heavy hammer spring to fix the issue. In the case of the AR-15 you will need to make sure the head spacing is tight and hand select a firing pin that will give you the maximum protrusion from the bolt face in order to deal with the additional primer depth. I had no problems in over 300 rounds from an AR-15. I also did not find it to be especially dirty. A note to the buyers of Cabelas if you could get these guys to load this stuff with commercial primers that where flush with the face it would be a slam dunk.

good ammo

Date:October 22, 2013
I use this in my sks for whitetail deer works great. shot placement is key if you are within 150 yards and can shoot it works well. Don't expect it to preform like a premium bullet because it isn't but it gets it done i've never had a fail to fire and i have shot close to 500 rounds of this stuff

Great Plinking Ammo-Accurate, small groupings

Date:October 15, 2012
I've been buying Herter's and TulAmmo for my AK. The Herter's is a cleaner ammo and shoots dead on in good groups. I just ordered another 500 rounds ! Will order more next month also.

Reliable, accurate, stopping power

Not one misfire after several hundred rounds through an SKS. Stops hogs in their tracks up to 200yds.

HERTERS'S 7.62X39mm

Date:July 16, 2011
bought a Saiga sgl-61, loaded up 6 different double stack magazine with this ammunition and shot 180 rounds, just stopping long enough to change magazines and not one misfire! and the grouping was well within 2",so close togeather it can cut out the bulls eye on the target! if you want to shoot alot and not spend a ton of money this ammo is the ticket!! I shot a total of 500 rounds,that I bought at cabelas and not one dud!!
