For a normal person, I don't think there's big enough difference to not to use the cheap ammo.
Great information, thank you.

That just answerd my question. 3000 round difference isn't that much. Now if it would have been a 10,000 round difference, that would have been a whole different story. Thank you everyone, all this info really helps.

Even if it was 10k less 90% of people would never shoot it out.

I just got about 7 boxes for my AK-74. I think it worked out fine for me. I don't know if anyone is looking for an answer, but this is a cashing of opinion; I think it was perhaps the "hottest" ammo I have ever sent through my baby. I have had everything from the surplus to Wolf)military classic). and I could feel the heat when I fire. I could literally see my barrel sizzling from heat when my friend was shooting it. I think it is accurate as well. I was tearing away full pieces of target because my groups were consistent. I am not in no way saying I am a good shooter, but I think this ammo is good. I mean there is a reason they have been in business forever. >:3
