How much are you looking for? I have a goodly amount of Turkish on strippers and in bandoleers. I'd have to see what's left, but I bought 1,400 rounds. Shot some, sold some, gave some away.

I only have one 8mm Mauser left, and I seldom shoot it. I'll match the best deal you find on a one case lot, and sell you all I can pack in an ammo can at the same cents-per-round rate, plus actual UPS shipping cost.

PM me if you're interested.

That's definitely an old price. In late December, I paid $170/900 and it has risen as the surplus 8mm has disappeared.

Samco has new Hirtenberger for $0.369 each. Hirtenberger is excellent ammo.

Aim has the sniper ammo at $5.95/15 ($0.397) or $315/900.

The Yugo was a good deal if you can find any.
