Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that they are selling Monarch branded 7.62x39 FMJ for $2.99 a box. I picked up 520 rounds today and will go back for more soon. Now if it would only drop to $1.50 a box.

My father just picked some of this up earlier. I can vouch for the quality of this ammo. When I had an SKS, I shot this stuff almost exclusively with no issues. It was as accurate as the SKS was for certain.

As far as I know, the steel-cased Monarch ammunition they sell is all from Barnaul and the brass-cased Monarch is Privi-Partizan from Serbia.

That's some good news. I need ammo prices to go down!
Don't hold your breath.

I read elsewhere that Academy had accidentally added an extra '0' to their order, and instead of 50,000 cases, got 500,000.

Also reported elsewhere was that these prices were gonna be good through December.

Since I read it on the internet, it must be true, but it's definitely something to think about.

It is good stuff for the Ak's and SKS's.No problems shooting over 1000 rounds of Monarch thru my AK.Wish I could find some .223 that was as cheap as the Monarch.

Unfortunately these prices wont be here for long. Just read that the US has put sanctions on Russian goods due to their dealings with Iran. Wolf, and all their name sakes will probably get harder to find.
