I would not use FMJ or M855 steel penetrators. What you are looking for a controlled expansion with good penetration. HD SD hollow points will probably expand too much and not penetrate enough.

Barnes are expensive, but I've seen good things about Nosler Partitions, might want to look into to that.
Put it in the boiler room and it will do fine, just do not try to punch it thru the plate , it may have ill effects on the hp

Have you considered a brake/compensator on your ak?

Ive got an arrangement of ak brakes, the slant works best on lowering muzzle rise, and it makes it more controllable.

Im really just wanting to get an AR.

I agree with the advice AgentTikki and mjkeat gave. If you want less recoil than the AK/7.62x39 then I'd definitely go with 5.56 in some of the heavier loads and a 1/7 twist barrel. Glad to hear you've distanced yourself from the C15 and hopefully the shop that was trying to push it. $900 can get you a great AR and BCM comes to mind. PSA is a great choice and will get you down to the $700 range.

As far as the difference between the AK and AR I don't notice that much difference in recoil but I do feel like I'm in slow motion with the AK while the AR is much quicker with a followup shot. The AK action just seems slow and of course slightly more recoil.
