Get a converted Saiga by Rifle Dynamics and a couple cases of Wolf FMJ (any grain).

Try J&G sales.

After your first large purchase,

they will send you a nice monthly flyer.

Them have drum mags, and some of the best,

if not the best bulk ammo sales on

the net, after you factor in shipping.

As to stocks, I prefer the standard non-folding shoulder

in synthetic, but that's just a personal choice.

Wolf ammo sucks in hand guns this I know so I would not expect much more out of the rifle ammo

Just field strip and clean your rifle, barrel, and chamber,

(especially the chamber)

before you go to shoot. The cosmoline they use as a

preservative can cause major grief, otherwise.

AKs are famous for eating any kind of shootable ammo,

and I never found a brand my AK or SKS couldn't easily

cycle.

Many of us, myself included, however, have had major

problems cycling ammo, due to a chamber which should have been

properly cleaned before the initial range trip...

OP, I have a converted saiga and it will eat Wolf all day long. I have yet to have a problem with Wolf in my rifle. I use it in my AR as well. Tula works great too. That being said, you should do what therewolf says before shooting it the first time. I believe your question about converted saiga's was answered in another thread right?

I've never used Wolf handgun ammo so I can't comment in it. the rifle ammo works just fine though
