My local Dunham's has it, plenty in fact. About $5.35 for a box of 15. I believe it is of Yugo origin. I'd like to know if anyone has any experience with it. Is it good for plinking/general shooting, or best avoided unless desperate measures call for it? I know it is corrosive, otherwise know little else about it's characteristics. Can anyone shed any light on this cartridge? Thanks.

Horrible ammo if you find any just send it to me and I will dispose of it properly! Just go on GB and see what they are selling for a case. Glad I bought mine yrs ago cheap! Surprised there is still some around. Famas $5 for 15rds are you sure it's M67? $600 a case of 1120rds and rising.

Hairbag - I'm pretty sure it is m67. Little brown boxes of 15 rounds, with a white label featuring cyrillic writing. I noticed a red varnish around the primers, and all cartridges are dated late '78-'79.

The Dunham's store in my locale has pulled their ARs and AKs off their shelves, but I suspect they are leaving the ammo out to get rid of it. I'm grabbing what I can at that price.

Strangely, they've left their AR .22s look-alikes. Also a few bolt actions and shotguns. The greater majority of the firearm section is now filled with airsoft.

Yeah I'm lucky I bought up a couple of cases before Obama. It's nice ammo. It should say m67 on the box

I used to have an SKS that was picky about ammo. It got along real good on M67. They still have some at our local Dunhams for 7.00 a box of 15.
