7.5 French at Aim Surplus (posted 1/18/13)

If you want some for your MAS, this is a good price for surplus.

Hard to find 7.5 French MAS ammunition manufactured in France. This is clean Military Surplus from the late 1950's to early 1960's that was arsenally delinked and repacked for commercial sale into 20rd boxes. Features a full metal Jacketed bullet, brass case, and berdan corrosive primer.
$6.79/box
$324.50/1000(case)

yea, but not for $ 6.79 a box, I'd rather shoot cheap and clean the hell out of it [smilie=011.gif]
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

the surplus you don't have to bend over and pick up

correction walk down range and pick up [smilie=011.gif] , my MAS throws the cases about 12 feet forward and to the side ](*,)

The surplus stuff also has hard primers.
First time I shot Privi in my 49/56, I was doing great 3 round bursts [smilie=033.gif]
I had to modify that 3# firing pin (put a spring on it).

The BBT dropped off the 13 Lb box (220 rounds) today.

Headstamp info:
1959 dated.
After 1950 the French changed from a cupro-nickle-plated steel jacket to a bonderised and waxed steel or tombac (copper-zinc alloy) jacket. TE is the manufactuers code for :

Atelier de Fabrication de Toulouse.
