Default Best ammo for sks

I personally like the yugo m-67, it's brass very accurate, reliable and inexpensive. It is mildly corrosive. It doesn't bother my ak or sks, but i also clean my guns after shooting. I have also shot wolf and golden tiger and had good results from both. Probably golden tiger would be my second choice.

I like PRVI Partizan.

It's more expensive,though.

As far as the rest, unless it's brass with boxer primers, IMO it's

all pretty much the same. I never met a round a decent combloc

milsurp gun couldn't dependably fire.

1. Clean your rifle after each shoot.

2. What the bloody hell are you doing shooting

combloc brand ammos in ARs? HELLO! ANYBODY

HOME THERE, McFLY?

Sorry my spidy senses are cloudy this crisp fall morning, are you joking about the cleaning every shot and not using "combloc brand" ammunition in an AR?

I've not had any ammo issues with mine. In days long gone, I used to use whatever was cheap & on hand at the nearest pawn shop. I don't think the rifle cares.

No, no, no. Every "shoot", not every shot.

As in whenever you go out and shoot your gun

using corrosive ammo, when you come home, clean it.

Personally, I would clean only one shot, although I

never have because it would be a wasted trip to go to the range

and shoot it once. But that's just what I do. I'm nobody's boss.

Let your barrels get as corroded as you like.

Default The "best?"

Lapua. Period. Very expensive, compared with everything else, but it's accuracy is unequaled...

Glockcurmudgeon, out...

It all depends on what your gun likes. You might have two guns of the same model with only one number difference in serial number and they'll like completely different brands of ammo.

I like the Hornday 7.62x39 and its about mid-priced with ok results in my gun.

Brass cased 7.62x39 is expensive unless its corrosive usually. I'm thinking of switching to the mil-surplus brass-cased just so I can shoot my AK at the local indoor range. That and for the sake of getting the most accuracy out of an AK or SKS is the only two real apparent reasons to reload a cartridge that is ruled by the overly abundent steel cased stuff.

Wolf isnt terrible, just dirty. Even if it is steel, lead and copper sammiched together to make a bullet cheaper it still cant ruin your rifling any quicker than normal copper and lead bullets.

AR-15s and Mini-14s have firing pins that have firing pin springs, unlike most AKs and SKSs that are simply ineria driven and only held in by a pin. Most berdan primes are a bit harder than the boxer primers for this very reason, that way when the bolt slams home it doesnt ignite the round as easily.

Test different brands of ammo for accuracy and reliability in that particular gun and see what it likes best then buy a truck load of it is my opinion.
