    10% dud rate on this Greek ammo

    Posted by James Elek on Mar 22nd 2024

    Bought a 960 rd case of this ammo. Have only shot 4 boxes so far out of 3 different rifles - a k98 and 2 Turkish Mausers, 1st box 1 dud, 2nd box 3 duds, 3rd box 2 duds, 4th box i dud for an average of 2 rds per box or 10% dud rate. Talked to customer service and they aren't making any allowance for extra rds to compensate. Still it's a decent deal just not as good as I hoped. Still fairly accurate after 85 years when they do fire, Also it is Berdan primed and not reloadable brass.

    Greek 8mm

    Ammunition is good, clean, and reliable. I have only experienced one or two misfires in several hundred rounds. Even though this is brass case the cases ARE NOT reloadable, its all berdan primed.

    8mm 40s greek surplus

    Posted by Rob on Dec 26th 2023

    Almost half of the case was 38 dated boxes and headstamps, the rest was 40 dated boxes with 39 dated headstamps. Not a single 1940 dated round in the case. Was told they didn't check every box and I could return it if I wasn't satisfied

    All 1938 dated and in great shape. Packed well my centerfire and it all should be sure fire ammo

    Decent, hard primers

    Posted by Alex Leduc on Dec 23rd 2023

    40% roughly required a second primer strike. Roughly 3% hangfires. Only shot about 140 rounds so far, no duds yet. Very similar to Ethiopian and Egyptian 8mm. Not as dirty.

    Excellent quality ammo, some light oxidation on cases but otherwise ammo is in excellent condition.
