Need nickel plated 7.62x39 brass.

Post by cvasqu03 » Wed May 31, 2017 12:07 pm

Does anyone have a source for nickel plated 7.62x39 boxer primed brass? I need at least 100 of these for a special project. I'd prefer new brass, but at this point I'd be happy to take used brass as long as I can polish it.

Also, if anyone has berdan primed nickel brass in this caliber I might be able to work with that also, but would prefer boxer brass obviously.

Thanks

I don't think there is such an animal. Best you might do is find some zinc washed Silver Bear in 7.62x39. It will be berdan primed and steel cases though. If you are willing to spend the $$$ you could always get some USA made 7.62x39 brass cases and have them plated.

This looks to be nickel plated factory ammo.

Well there you go, Winchester does make it. Only it is $30 a box and out of stock. Better register with SG and put yourself on the notify list if you want some.

In stock and a little cheaper [smilie=011.gif] I wonder if they're discontinuing it--most places look to be out of stock.
