The Yugo I purchased was 'rearsenaled' to like new condition. The bore is very good. The Wolf is loaded with .308 diameter bullets. The range at my gun club has hanging 'gongs' at 100, 200 and 300 yards. All are deer sized or thereabouts. From a bench rest, I can ring them all... every time.
I put any gun, load and bullet through some pretty rigorous range time before I take anything hunting. Once I am confident in the capability of the hardware, depending on my ability to get within the acceptable parameters of the game I am hunting, I'll usually be comfortable in trying a reasonable shot.
I've read that some SKS's shoot respectably with .308 diameter bullets. Mine certainly shoots well enough at moderate ranges to put one in the boiler room of a white tail.
I have some crop damage permits coming, that should give me a chance to get off paper and onto meat.
Venison recipes anyone?
