Info on Indian 7.62 NATO
« on: December 24, 2008, 06:34:49 am »

    Have a decent offer on some Indian 7.62 NATO.  It's head stamped 82.  I know the 1970's stuff is pretty good.  I've shot some & have heard the Brits from Radway Green were in charge of the QC at the Indian Arsenal during that time frame.  But just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the 82 stuff.  If it's no good, the price is actually good enough to maybe just pull the bullets, and reload them.  Any info will be great!!!


    Thank You...

    If the price is too good to pass up-

    Pick it up, cull it for crushed case mouths(There WILL be several I'd bet), pull the slugs, dump the powder on your garden, recharge with a known good load, then re-seat.

    Don't shoot it.  It's just too crappy.

        Yeah, it's $200 for 600 rounds of the stuff.  I'm pretty new in the reloading arena, but my friend is helping me out.  I mean, 200 seems like a pretty good price right now, although, it IS Indian ammo.  I really don't think the ammo prices are gonna stay the way they are...  But who knows???

    The brass itself is actually pretty decent.  Quality control during the loading proccess is the issue.

    mr. gallbrick....
    i'm thinking we need to get that stinkin' reloading set up of yours going, invest in some quality powder, pull the rest of the bullets you have and have some fun reloading.
    you NEED to get ahold of me before you ship out again.
    i've got the dies for the 7.62x51...
    but that powder looked questionable...
    give me a call homey
