    5.56 nato ammo

    Dear all members!
    I have came across these rounds in Karkhano Market Last Sunday. I am not an A.R loving person but only took it as an addition to love of Arms and Ammo.

    What do you guys think about its originality? In MHO all of these type of ammo cannot be produced locally.

    I have labeled these rounds after getting help from Google.

    http://www.pakguns.com/album.php?alb...chmentid=36598
    The Green Tip is obviously common, having LC, WCC some other common brands of Nato.

    and The Packing lying separate for Sp. ammo.

    Sorry for the Picture quality, as the website is not accepting higher res.

    Dear. I think you can easily visit there as you are in ISB.
    The rate of rounds is as under:
    Tracer (Pinkish red) is Rs.50-55,
    New double tip A.P Round (They call it double tuss) and Simple Black tip is Rs. 70/-
    The Blanks are Rs. 100 but depends upon availability and bargaining skill.
    The shops are closed but the dealers are wandering here and there sipping QAHWA and having chats with each other and when they see a customer, they will not agree upon having the stock. But after developing their confidence they will agree on selling the stuff.
    Originality is verbally guaranteed by those sellers.

    The rate of ammo is also going up (Karkhano Market) following the rates of CQ-As, as I have noticed Rs.10/- to 20/- (a piece) increase in the last 10 days.

    The rounds in the original 3 pictures, and the boxes, all appear to be original factory ammo.

    Today's Green Tip Price in Karkhano is Rs.38 (fine and clean, 30s clips), Tracers and APs are still Rs.50, but stock is diminishing. Hard to find .222 above barrier.

    The price of 7.62X39 is dependent on luck. Believe it, I brought a bunch of them yesterday for a friend for Rs.48 a piece and those were OLD RED Chinese (mil surp), steel core.

    They are very clean. in fact they opened a can of 720 rnds, and there was the treasure, wrapped 20rnds in khaki papers. Tribal people had dumped Afgh. war era cans somewhere deep in wells and when Eid Days are ahead, they often brings "some of them" to meet their extra exp. And there is no specific shop, traders setting in front of their closed shops, sipping qahwa and tea have hawk eyes on incoming occasional stuff. Mostly those casual traders (who used to be transporters of weapons and ammo in the past) when come across these things, brings them in front of purchasers and there comes good luck. In ordinary retail they sell these rounds @60/rnd & even more and the same with Russian new stuff came from Afgh. (smug. from Nato). Variety and choice in selecting 7.62rnds is now a tale of the past but these days, you can find variety of 5.56. We even had came across H.Ps in 5.56 ammo a few months back but no one was interested in it due to lack of lic.

    I have been quoted 130 to 175 a pop for 5.45x39 of unknown origin. Would that be a good price?
