U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- The Biden Administration purports to be punishing Russia by banning Russian-made firearms and ammunition. That’s not what’s happening. Only a buffoon or the willingly ignorant would perceive the reality as something other than de facto gun control.

As might be expected, thousands of gun owners are now purchasing 7.62 x 39 ammunition in anticipation of the coming Russian ammo drought. Several sources remain “flush” with that caliber in bulk, but unless something in those new sanctions changes, this won’t last too long.

One of the places currently in stock is Maxim Defense, albeit in Yugoslav ammunition rather than Russian. Their cartridges are 124 gr 7.62 x 39 FMJ in a brass case with a Berdan primer, sold by the crate (1120 rounds per). They come mounted on SKS stripper clips.

As of this writing, those cases are going for $695 each. That puts each round at about 62 cents (.62). Under current conditions that’s a pretty reasonable cost, particularly if you’re comparing brass-cased ammo to the steel-cased stuff (and more so if you like to reload).

Plus, you get to keep the case…which might not excite some people but is a good side benefit for others.

Maxim Defense also offers its own brand of ammunition, the “TUI” (Tumble Upon Impact) solid copper spun line designed for short barrels, or as they put it, “…designed for light recoil with no sacrifice in velocity. Because of the solid copper spun construction, these bullets can be used wherever lead projectiles are prohibited for sport shooting”.

I know I’m old, but “back in the day” I bought several cases of Chinese steel core from RSR Wholesale, 1440 rounds, for $69.95. Sure wish I knew then what I know now !


No one wants to be a prostitute like you.


Sadly, her spam’s a better read than JohnLloydScharf’s cut-paste keyboard diarrhea.




The supply of Russian ammo will not change until the current import licenses begin to expire. The demand side has increased after the import ban announced.


Lovely our ammo manufactures are looking for any excuses to keep prices high. Now the cost for copper / brass, lead, powder and industry chem. Did not go up in the last 48 hours but funny how the prices jumped up, with Biden’s restriction on Russian ammo. Hummmmmm gets you to wondering just how American 2A minded our gun industry really is. Everyone wants our money from legislation action groups to high priced Ammo manufactures with ammo going out in both price gouging and limited amounts. What I found interesting is they say, while retailers limited our purchases to one… Read more »


You are a cost-plus person trying to live in a market-based world.

It’s difficult, isn’t it?

The answer to your question is: the people willing to pay will get the product. You can buy all you want right now.

Just like everything else. The price on other goods increases as demand increases and/or supply is reduced.

How can you still not understand this?


Isn’t it funny how fast some people are willing to embrace socialism when they are faced with having to pay market prices for something they want?

I don’t think they even know what socialism is, how markets work, or what the effects of even more market interference would be.

Terry can have a pallet of 7.62 x 39 delevered to his home in two weeks. The people will unload it, stack it where he wants, remove the stretch wrap, shipping bands, and pallet and wish him a nice day.


A future supply cut hiking prices now is only ‘funny’ if you know zip about econ. Be the ant, not the whiny populist grasshopper.
