Norinco Ammo

Discussion in 'Caliber Corner' started by GuinnessMike, Oct 13, 2010.

  1. I had to help clean my Dad's house out this last weekend I found some ammo I left behind. I found several boxes of yellow boxed ammo from China = not marked Norinco it marked non corrosive and lead core 7.62 x 39 steel copper washed cases was packed in a wood crate. I cant seem to find it any where like this. I remember shooting it in my SKS and it was great shooting ammo. Is this stuff collectable?
    I also found 9 boxes of Norinco 9mm x 19 Green Boxes non corrosive and brass cases are these collectable as well.
    Trying to decide whether to just buy an AK and shoot up the ammo or is it more valuable to sell it. All ideas are appreciated

    Where evil lives
    Just a word of warning about the Green boxed "Norinco" ammo.

    The printing on the box bears virtually no resemblance to what is inside!

    I too have "non-corrosive" Norinco.

    If you can find it in your heart....TRUST ME!!!!... Mine at least is some of the MOST corrosive ammo I have ever used.

    A while back I used this ammo with some regularity,

    On one occasion, I did not clean my rifle for 3-4 days. By the time I did it was covered in fairly heavy rust.

    Now, mind you I don't avoid corrosive ammo, however, I put a minor delay in cleaning due partly to the "non-corrosive" markings on the ammo boxes.

    But, than again consider, they print whatever they wanted on the boxes and people bought it.

    What are you going to do.....sue Communist China.

    Collectible? Don't hold your breath. Load it up, shoot it and then clean your weapon. JMHO. YMMV. HTH. :supergrin:
  4. Well I showed both boxes to dealers and they both started drooling and offered lowball offers for "taking it off my hands"
