I am aware of the ammo going to Iraq...wasn't sure if this stuff was going there or not.
Side note: FUNNY....an army intel friend saw a gun in person that was taken from an insurgent----this gun astounded many people and its been posted about all over the place, pictures are out there....apparently, one of our guys recovered a NICE MP-44 that was being actively used by the bad guys. Now WHERE was he getting ammo for it?! And who will get that gun when we leave there.... hmmm
We have a gunshow here this weekend, and we are going to bag any 7.62X54 ammo we find if its close to the big ammo suppliers mentioned. Anyone sees 8mm mauser post up as well.
CBS interviewed the taliban in afganistan and they were holding a mosin rifle and a 303 britt rifle. They talked about how they took the russian army apart from up on the high ridges and cliffs with these old long barreled guns. This was right before the afgan war.
