Just wondering if all fo the wholesalers are out of stock on the AK-74's like they are everything else. It would seem logical to me that the average joe would not gravitate to a 74 because of its "different" chambering. But I'm thinking if you want a good EBR, that's the way to go - excellent Bulgarian ammo abounds for $120/1080 count can. Russian is just a little more... Just an idea - for those wanting a good rifle right now.... You can have an AK-74 and 3 or 4 cans of ammo for the price of a cheaper grade AR... And yes, I practiced what I preach - have a couple of these myself - and plenty of that good ammo. The only thing about this milsurp ammo is that its corrosively primed which means that you need to clean with water after shooting - but that's no biggy to me... especially since it's the most sure-fire and accurate 5.45 that I've tested... ETA - got to thinking that I really need to order some more of ammo - so I did - two more cans. I know that I'll be glad I did when it goes up to $300 a can when things go really nuts.
