Default Iranian 8mm

Has anyone used the 8mm ammo from Iran that samco is selling? Its slightly more expensive than the Yugo equivalent. Both are from the 50's, but I've read that the 50's Yugo is prone to case neck splitting. I've read reviews on Iranian 30-06 and it was pretty good. Somewhat dirty but accurate. I'm looking for a good round to use in an Egyptian FN-49. 8mm surplus seems to drying up. I'd like to find more of the newer Yugo stuff like Aim was selling recently.

Keep an eye on SGAmmo.com. They were selling the 70's Yugo and Romanian 8mm ammo a little while ago. They are out for now but are always coming up with new stuff.

Not wanting to start a flaming contest here, but why would anyone want to purchase anything made in Iran?

For the same reason guys buy Soviet era or Russian, Chinese and other former combloc 7.62x54 or former combloc made 8mm.
It is generally cheap, and it usually goes bang.
Mil-surp folks don't seem to have much problem with buying Pakistani made 9mm or 7.62 NATO spec ammo so why would Iranian made ammo from back in the days of the Shah be looked at any different??

There is not a lot of surplus 8mm left. Many online stores no longer have any surplus 8mm. I had a little extra cash this month and thought about purchasing another gun. Changed my mind after looking around at the surplus ammo market. I ordered a TON of ammo instead.
