That stuff has went through the roof, I thought that was steep so I looked around... thats a decent price. Those are soft points though.

Here in KY, it's illegal to hunt with FMJ anyway.

I have about 60 rounds of SP that won't feed reliably, they are the regular Prvi Partizan which wont feed at all and some Norma Re's, which will feed manually. Not sure what the Re is.

I have about 50 more of the PPU and Norma brands and they feed well.

If I knew someone who could use them, I would part with them for cheap.

Yeah I think it's illegal here in Oklahoma too but I prefer hollow points to deer hunt anyways. I'll need to make my own for hunting since I haven't found very many company's, except Hornady and they're expensive as crap!

Alright gents, have another Enfield question for ya. I had to unfortunately sell mine that I had in order to be sure I could take care of some bills that came sprung up faster than I had thought. Anyways, I'm on the hunt again and have found two that I am interested in. Here are the links. Which would you choose and why?

If I had to choose one I'd go with the first one. As it comes with sling, bayonet and ammo.

But if I were in Oklahoma I'd be tempted to get both.

I would base my decision on bore condition. If they don't talk about the bore in an ad it's a negative hint. The bayo is probabaly after market, and the sling is under $20 for an original. So #2.
