So I have a couple Mosin Nagants that I want to get some ammo for. Thanks to Luke, I have a source (aimsurplus) that has 7.62x54r for good prices. Here are my choices:

1950's - 600 Rounds on Stripper Clips - $180 Shipped ($0.30)
1970's - 880 Rounds in Paper packaging - $160 + Shipping ($0.22)
New - 500 Rounds (25 20rd boxes) - $190 + Shipping ($0.43)

I am leaning towards the 1950's but am worried about it being 50 years old. Anyone have any guidance or advice? I know I will need to clean the rifles after use as the old ammo is corrosive, but other than that anything I need to be worried about?

i would just go with the newer ammo-

then you won't have to clean the ammo before you use it, and you won't have to worry about the corrozzive issue. some of that surplus ammo has been sitting around in old wooden boxes and it gets dirty, dusty and grimey.

and it is just the standard 7.62x54 NATO round, right?

in a nagant the surplus ammo you speak about is exactly what it was designed to shoot.. save money buy all the surplus you can.. and clean after use..
and shooting 7.64x54r its not like you are gonna be goin out and blasting off hundreds of rounds at a time anyway. lol unless you got one hell of a tough shoulder
