I know there is alot of loose DAG german ammo out there now that has a high percentage of tarnished rounds.
I have access to some sealed battle packs of DAG, but am weary about getting tarnished ammo.
Can any one comment on the fallowing please.

One online store admits that theirs, headstamped 93-.... has low % of tarnish that will not affect performance. I just opened a 500rd can with 10 different stamps from 92-93 with no tarnish. If the price is right or you can get the seller to discount for tarnished you can use it to your advantage. It is berdan primed so you won't reuse the brass.

To start with tndoug, it's good firing military surplus ammunition. I have used it with on issues. The heavy tarnished brass that's on the internet now is from 1993, not 1969 surplus.

The lost art of Research is doing great...

What? No Indian? GI6
I'm a firm believer in Rule #10 NoExpert......DI5

The 10 Golden Rules of Ammunition:

1) You can never have too much ammunition on hand. 1k rounds per battle rifle is a good minimum to start with (fubar).
2) Supplies of good surplus run out before you know it, and usually when you're running low on ammunition so buy plenty while its available.
3) When in doubt about how much ammunition you should buy, refer to rule #1.
4) Ammunition is meant to be shot, so shoot often.
5) Because of rule #4, ammunition must be replenished often as well.
6) When replenishing supply of ammunition, refer to rules #1 through #3.
7) You must buy at least twice as much ammunition as you shoot (fubar).
8) Always store ammunition in a cool dry place (TEA). The only time you have to much ammunition on hand is when you have a house fire(Slick).
9) If you don't have room in your house to store ammunition per rule #8, build a bunker or a cellar in your back yard for storing ammunition (TEA).
10) Friends don't let friends buy Indian surplus ammunition (TEA). Or Never buy surplus ammunition from a country where you wouldn't drink the water (midrat).

As we all should be. Just had to poke a little fun after reading your list of ammunition results and didn't see that you avoided Indian ammo like the plague it is. Excellent list by the way. I know rifles like different ammo but it's nice to have a guide line to look at. I also appreciate you updating the ammunition prices in here since I'm getting ready to buy more so I check the list regularly as I'm getting closer to buying.
