Talking M75 7.92x57"sniper" ammo

I see theres a bit more of this privi '80's manuf. 196gr lead core heavy boat tail ball around @$8/15-$450/900 rds.Its advertised as 'probably' non corrosive which means to me clean with water or ww2 bore cleaner of which I have plenty(bore cleanerLOL) Has anyone used this ammo?I see newly manufactured 7.92 made IIRC by the same country likely on same machinery
for about 15$/20 which is definetly NC.Alot of $ but I have a really pristine M48 i bought in/around
'01' as unissued and it appeared to be just that.Since purchase ive fired nothing but NC HB-198gr portugese '70's w/sometimes infrequent (lazy) cleaning.
So far w/o problems.Of course humidity is almost nonexistent here compared to my former residence Mn.Fact is I havent fired the weapon all that much buying 400 rds of the portugese around the same time as the wpn and just now down to approx 100rds.30 rds a yr?!! SHAMEFULL

In all seriousness Id love to hear from anyone whos used this ammo or has an opinion in regards.
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays! hell with those dont approve of my right to voice it. pndr

I used some of it and it was as accurate as the 1930's Nazi ball I have. It had the same label "Probably Non-corrosive" If that is the knowledge they have, then it is probably not match. I agree with you, clean as if using corrosive ammo.

The M75 ammo is corrosive. The 8mm loaded by Prvi Partizan is non-corrosive but is somewhat under loaded. If you can locate some, the Portuguese 8mm from the 1970's is non-corrosive and loaded to German WWII specs.

For what the Yugo ammo costs, it is relatively good ammo, all loaded to German WWII specs. However, all the Yugo 8mm is corrosive, even the late date M75.

It's good Mauser food and with cheap 8mm surplus drying up like it slowly has over the past decade I'd snap up as much as I can.

i've been shooting the 50's yugo for about 4years now and my k98 does great with it.i shoot about 3-4 hundred rds a year. i recently restocked w/ some more 50's yugo. i've bought some of the 80's "match" once and did not see any difference in performance, but i shoot open sights,no scope. for me it isn't worth double the cost of the 50's. i shoot the privi soft points to hunt with and they outshoot all U.S. made 8mm. i don't have a crono but the U.S. made feels underpowered and shoots lower at the same distances. i read "many years ago" they did this for liability reasons with so many surplus mausers coming in after the war.... just my thoughts.

The 70's port. is what Im shooting now.Ive only a few rds left of the original 400 rd case I bought from SAMCO yrs ago.
Speaking of FNM I have a single box or empty box of commercial 7.92x57 FNM
heavy ball.I just cannot recall when or where I got it?!The HS says FNM 8x57
JS TARGET commercial box , FNM, Municoes de Armas ligeiras,Made in Portugal. IIRC it shot well but the 70's mil FNM is very accurate/HOT.
Thanks for the tips gents

I've got 4 boxes of that blue-boxed FNM Port match 8mm ammo still left from when I had my K98 sniper a while back. I had kind of planned to keep it, but I would let it go for $75 for all 4 boxes, plus shipping, if anybody wants it for that.

I was looking for at least several hundred rds but thanks for offer.I notice wideners M75
'sniper' is out of stock again likely for good.Hate to spend $15/20rd box of the privi particularly if underpowered.The FNM surplus along with the steel cup style M48 buttplate put a hurt on my then skinny frame after 20-40rds.Better hang on to the last
approx 140rds shtf.

Thanks from PvtJoker

No problem. I'm going to put it back instead and just hang onto it in case I wind up getting one of the Yugo M76 snipers.
