I have an SKS that has been sporterized. It is a very accurate rifle with just plain old hunting ammo. I have never seen BTHP ammo for the 7.62x39 to really test its accuracy. I am not going to reload for a dust catcher. The SKS had it's days in the field. I shot a nice buck 8 times before he could cross a logging path with the SKS. This is why I quit hunting with the SKS. If I had shot a deer 4 times with my 30/06 (capacity of the BAR) he wouldn't have run another 50 yards.

I have never hunted a deer with such rifle, but I know someone who has.Personally, I prefer a heavier bullet for such activities...like a 30-08 or a 8mm Mauser....something that can deliver 4000+ joules of energy.the m43 is good for killing a person, not an animal about 450+ kgs.
