Do you know any places in So Cal where I can just go in and buy a box of this or soft point ammo (7.62x54R)?

Where are you located? "A place to Shoot" in Saugus has there range boxed ammo they sell 15 rounds for 10.00. Also look for the Winchester brand ammo at Big 5 and other stores. The Winchester stuff is non magnetic. Otherwise just order a box and have it shipped it should only take a couple days.

Here are some brands to look for
Winchester
Seller Bellot
Silver Bear (I've never shot this stuff)

IF you had some reloading equipment I'd say to pull the bullets off your steel case stuff and replace them with soft point or FMJ bullets.

I'm in Downey. I've heard of Silver Bear and Brown Bear, I see that they sell non magnetic and Soft point, respectively. I'll have a look at Big 5. I know I can shoot at LA Gun club:
http://www.thelosangelesgunclub.com/
as long as I shoot FMJ. I know they sell 7.62x54R. Burro Canyon will let us shoot steel and bi metal during the "wet season".

I don't have reloading equipment, but can steel case be used to reload? or should I just toss them after firing? Thanks in advance.

Hey DR562
No you cannot reload steel, BUT you can pull the bullets and put new ones on if you haven't fired them. It may not be cost effective because you'll need to still use your powder and bullets and the other issue is corrosive primers BUT it is an option when you have no other.

As to tossing the steel cases, I don't. They are kinda cool to keep around. You can use them to make snap caps out of too.

Glad to be of help.

I'm bumping this because mine is ready to fire before i send it off too Teludyne. Angeles National Forest is the closest outdoor range to us and they are a non-magnetic range.

I am having a hell of a time finding non-magnetic in bulk. I would like to get it down to around 10 dollars per 20 rounds.

Any updates on good deals?

thank you much,

here we go. we bought every last box we could find of non-magnetic 54r at the Ontario Gun Show. we got 295 round that averages out to .60 cents each. we got a mixture of some sort of really old non-magnetic, yugo and then on of the regular reload vendors has some. still doesnt seem like much ammo. we will keep our eyes open at the Costa Mesa show.

I had a bunch of that 15rd boxed ammo a while back and it sure is nice shooting stuff. Real accurate, and fairly clean too! I don't know any background on it though.

Whats the deal with the non magnetic ammo? I have only ever heard of that on indoor ranges to prevent penetrating the backstop/wall/car in the parking lot. :lol:

Well at least here in SoCal they worry about the steel cores striking rocks and other objects at outdoor ranges and creating fires. Where I live fire is a big deal every year.

Indoor ranges are as you state most are afraid of backstop penetration or ricochet back to the firing line.
