"Received the shipment very quickly. Took out my '43 K98 and its shot the rounds with virtually no issues. The only issue I had was the spent shell not extracting too well...which is attributed to the lacquered casing but all I had to do was give it a touch more gusto on pulling the bolt open. Don't let the lacquer shells stop you though. This is the cheapest surplus you can find that's not ancient. Also, love the fact its on chargers. It just feels awesome to use the bolt to push it out of the way for some reason..."

"This ammo was a good buy. It ran though my M76 with no problems. The big plus to this ammo that i found to be the best, is that it flies almost the same as the heavier 198gr Honorary ammo. I hope this stuff stays around for a while so i can get another case next month."

"Got my ammo cans intact VERY promptly which was an awesome surprise. I just got back from the range and the ammo works great in my K98K Mauser. Warning however, I spent a longer time than usual after my trip to the range cleaning the barrel which must have gotten rather dirty from the small amount of ammo I shot. But still a great quality deal!"

"This old Romanian spam can ammo is about all the bulk surplus 8mm left for anyone to buy; fortunately there are a couple of vendors who can beat this price. Check around before ordering."

"Best price anywhere, super-fast shipping, two spam cans were packed in a cardboard box. Haven't fired it yet, but it chambers and extracts without any problem as unfired ammo. May buy another two spam cans for my stockpile."

"CTD is an awesome company, and shipped the ammo quickly. At the range, the first can had about a 10% misfire rate. That was in two recently refurbed K98s, both mine and my son's. The guns fire PPU rounds without a single misfire. Still a good deal for the price. Maybe the second can will be better"

"I bought this ammo only a few months ago. On a recent trip to my home in Michigan I took 100 rounds of this ammo with along with my 8mm Mauser. Now understand that the ammo I received was not in spam cans, it was wrapped in heavy paper, a tar like substance over the paper then another wrapping of paper and then inside of the wooden crate. So in taking the 100 rounds to my home, I was all set to try this ammo.... Of the first 20 rounds I tried to fire, (12) thats TWELVE rounds were misfires. I was so bummed out that I never fired anymore. Was I pleased with this ammo? ... NO! would I recommend it to others? NO!"

"Just returned from the desert where I fired about 40-rounds through my 1943 k98 Mauser. Ammo performed well, no failure-to-feed/ejections, no broken/burst casings, no squibs. Thumped hard and was as accurate as I could shoot with iron sites. Shipping was quick and flawless to my doorstep. It even sat in the rain for several hours with not one problem. Clean rounds on functional charging clips. Reasonable price if not for the somewhat steep shipping cost (not CTD fault). Thanks CTD - another successful purchase!"
