Beautiful women are like well built machineguns: Some should just be looked at, and left alone, while others were built to get hot.

60 yr old ammo is a little too old for me.
if you find any good reviews post some links here.

My MG dealer has a FA 34 and 42 and he will not let any of that Iranian ammo near it. I guess the loads differ from super hot to not hot enough. The best ammo out there for decent price now is the Romanian. AIM may still have a little left from their huge stockpile.
