About the 7.62x39mm shortage

At the gun show today talked to an ammo dealer I've done business with before. He said that right now Wolf is only selling him two cases a month! Which, of course, disappear as soon as he sets it out. He can get no 9x18mm from either Wolf or Brown Bear.

According to him: Syria ordered a billion rounds from Russia, and Venezuela ordered the same number. So that doesn't leave much to be sold to us lousy capitalists in the U.S.

Gee, I wonder if Putin got cash in hand for these massive sales to an old socialist ally and a new commie ally? Or is he taking partial payment and promises?

And I wonder how much of Venezuela's economy got promised to Russia for the ammo & arms?
