Got some great ammo from Sportsman's Guide - 2520 rounds for $246 delivered!!!! Here are the specs from their website:

1953-1956 production, brass-cased, corrosive, Berdan-primed and non-reloadable. 87-grain lead core full metal jacket. Muzzle Velocity: 1,390 F.P.S. Muzzle Energy: 365 ft.-lbs.

Not sure where it's from but it could be Romanian (my first choice) or possibly Polish. Should be great shooting stuff and the price was right!



They still have some if anyone needs it.

I ordered the same thing from them. They are Polish. I suggest you open those tin cans and store the ammo in an ammo can. When I opened my tins, there were some sort of brownish liquid along the weld marks. Some of the boxes close to the liquid were somewhat wet.

Other than that, they are great ammo. Went bang every time in my Tokarev and very accurate.

Also, I think yours are manufactured in 53. It's a good batch. The ammo shouldn't have any crimps on the casings therefore won't have any split casing problems.

i have the gun and a case of ammo.....but no mag for my CZ
Just do a Google search. There's a lot of CZ52 mags for sale.
If I'm not mistaken I bought my last ones at Cheaper Than Dirt.


1953-1956 production, brass-cased, corrosive,
Be sure to give the gun a good cleaning. They aren't kidding when they say corrosive.
I'm bad for leaving fired guns in my shop for a couple days before cleaning them.
A few years ago I wasn't thinking and didn't clean the CZ52 for a few days. The barrel was so rusty you would not believe it. The barrel wasn't completly ruined, but close.
I felt like a ass because I know better. Now I give the gun a bath in hot soapy water after shooting that corrosive ammo.

Thanks for the tip:thumbsup:

Does it matter what kind of soap you use? I have had my 52 for about four years and still have yet to shoot it. Now I have no excuse!

Thanks for the replies everyone - hope you are all enjoying your Easter!

Good enough. The water is more important than the soap.

Just think of the gun barrel and surrounding area, including the top of the magazine, as being coated with a layer of salt and you have to wash it off.

I have a air compressor in the barn, so my routine is to blow the water off the gun, spray it with WD40 them blow off the WD40.
Lube the gun normally and recheck it for rust again in a few days.


Without a air hose I'd shake off and wipe off all the water I could. Then I'd spray it with WD40 and wipe off all I could before lubing the gun.


I have a PPSH 41 7.62x25. That darn thing is a pain trying to stop the rust.
The magazines also have to be cleaned real good, several times.

M2, thanks for all the info.

For your PPSH-41 try using Barricade (formerly SHEATH). It's a rust preventative that is absolutely AMAZING!!!!! I use it on my CZ-82 that we keep in our vehicle 24/7 and there is NEVER a spot of rust anywhere, which is amazing, because the South FL humidity is BRUTAL!

Give it a try and thanks for all your help:thumbsup:

Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try. Who sells it?

For years I've been using Corrosion X. We used it on the helicopters in the Gulf of Mexico. It works good for preventing rust on guns but I never thought of using it before or after shooting bad corrosive ammo.

I recently bought several cases of 7.62x25 but I'm not shooting it as much as I'd like because it's a PITA to clean the guns.

I get it at the gun shows from pretty much any vendor that sells gun cleaning products, but it is also available at Bass Pro Shops, CTD, Midway, etc.

Have a great week!
