be careful of the former com-block ammo you get for really cheap. When it blows your gun up....not trying to rustle any feathers but...won't surprise me.
This does make sense, and it is unfortunate. I prefer to buy ammo made in either Europe or the US. Outside of MEN in Germany, Fiocchi in Italy, and whatever comes out of Switzerland, pretty much all European ammunition is going to come out of the former Communist Bloc. Seller & Bellot, Privi Partizan, and GGG in Lithuania, not to mention various factories in Hungary, Poland, Croatia, Romania, Ukraine, Czech Republic, and now Slovakia. (Not to mention Russia or Turkey, but I consider those to be Asian countries with a small part that happens to be in Europe.)
Eastern European ammunition is simply everywhere, where that from traditionally 'Western' nations is not.
