Hey fellas. Newbie here with some newbie questions.

I picked up my M1A Scout last week and with it, picked up a 250 round ammo can of Pakstani 7.62 which has been linked together.

First question - anyone know an easy way to de-link this stuff?

Second Question - what qualtiy ammo did I get? Should i expect any duds or hangfires in the can?

This is the video that showed me how. I wish to Hell I had bought 5,000 rounds of the stuff.

Research, the only good game in town anymore......


For delinking....

The slower way...

1. Get yourself a large soft chair, place in front of TV.
2. Get yourself a pair of learther gloves heavy type.
3. Get yourself two ammo cans, one on each side of the chair.
4. Sit and watch TV as you push the rounds out the back of each link.
5. Place the round in one can and the unused link in the other.

The faster way...

1. Put the belted ammunition in your M60/SAW or Ma Duce and put the trigger
2. Pick up links and put in can on right.
3. Pick up brass and place in can on left.

Thanks XXIV Corps


I must say the "faster way" would probably give me a heart attack, but would be awesome fun nonetheless!

Great post of your ammo data. I'm keeping a binder of all usefull data I want to keep from the forum and this will come in verrrry handy while looking for ammo.

If I shoot better than a 188, i'll probably need to post a good ribbing to you. DIEVIL

However, I don't think there a chance in hell I'll shoot 188 with the BEST ammo for quite some time.
