SoL:

My Norinco SKS is a great value for a very low price last spring.
Lots of simple fun. Could bet my life on that rifle.

Can you buy fairly cheap Russian (non-corrosive) ammo?

i think that its about $13.00 or $14.00

Our currency is kinda interesting.

Trust me, USA sounds really prime for a hunter/gun nut like myself.

Though I guess post 9 11 there's no way an immigrant could buy up guns.

This is the cool thing though,
to you guys Im sure that most of you grew up with dads m1 garand or carbine.

You are surrounded by what to me in my absolute foreignness are incredibly sought after collecters items here that I could never DREAM of affording, no carbine calibre ammo here either apparently.
whereas I grew up with basicly any rural person having an Enfield .303 in the closet. You can pick up one of them for between 50 and 100 bucks NZ.

is it rare for you to come across these?

Enfields are a bit more money here, but very plentiful. You can still get a decent sample for about $150USD. A bit less, a bit more.

Mini-14s are not accurate. Go with a good Enfield or AR-15 type rifle with a scope mounted on it. A good scoped Enfield in .303 caliber will handle the overwhelming majority of your shooting needs as far as medium and large animals go. It will also work very well against two legged predators too. Mounting even a not-so-expensive straight $X scope on an Enfield gives you a lot better advantage over most other shooters if you practice a little bit. If you can get the .308 caliber Enfields, you can also locate some higher quality grade match ammo to use which will make that Enfield even a better choice than one in .303 caliber.

I've had about 7 303s in my young life already, and had a nice sporterised SMLE with a scope on it, it was alright, a bit cumbersome for my liking.

Im much more into an M1 carbine style peppergun.

Hence me asking about the mini 14, big brother of the 10/22 which is by a long shot is my favourite .22 ever.
