Default Red Army Standard Ammo

http://redarmystandard.com/

Looks like a new source of imported ammo from Romania. It's being marketed as "new ammo at a surplus price." I'm a bit disappointed to not see any pricing yet. Looks like it's only being sold through Century Arms but they don't have info up about it yet either.

Here's a clip from the Century Arms catalog about it-


I think they accidentally left out 5.45. It was probably supposed to go in the middle.

Hopefully this will bring 5.45 and all of them back into the realm of reasonable.

Looks like they're focusing primarily on rifle calibers for now.

I thought 7.62x39 was a pistol caliber...

I searched before I even thought of posting! It doesn't look like anyone mentioned red, army, or standard in that thread which is why I didn't find it.

More than likely this is another capitalist looking to cash in, not someone coming along to save us. Call that cynical but I have been around a while.

Lame...

Is this supposed to be NEW ammo, or just more relabeled, rebranded, reboxed old stuff (like Tula in Herters boxes)?

Is Herters ammo not "new". Sure it is house branded Tula, but it is new mfg. ammunition.

The Red Army is Century's house brand of NEW mfg Romanian ammo. Century brought this in as "Hot Shot" ammo in the past.

Does that count as "new" for you?

Don't know about "new ammo at a surplus price", right now in "Specials" they have Russian surplus 5.45x39 for $315.95/tin + shipping...

When did Century become a subsidiary of Cheaper Than Dirt?

CTD should be permanently shunned for their ethics during that little scare. Red Army Standard doesn't shoot the tightest groups but not a bad deal for non corrosive.
