Anybody shoot these things? Normally I shoot Golden Tigers or Brown Bear. However due to the incredible shortage of ammo in this country (by federal design, I suppose), I am leaning toward purchasing this particular brand. Anyone hear anything on it, pro or con? :confused:

Doesn't really matter what you put through an SKS or an AK, they'll take just about anything.
Do you own one?

AK's and SKS's are some of the mst forgiving rifles ever invented. They seem to shoot the cheapest, dirtiest, crap ammo the best.

Send over a few hundred. I will give you a range report. Seriously, in this market if you can get them and the price doesn't hurt too bad, I think you'll be fine. Like others have said, those are "mikey rifles", they'll eat anything.

I look at it this way, my AK lives a pampered life. It's locked away. Its climate is controlled. It's clean 100% of the time. It's lubed with the latest and greatest products. It's never dropped or scratched, in fact, it's straight up loved...but you know what? It probably longs to be dirty and shoot crappy white box ammo.

Yep; it's Klimovsk (sp) ammo.....I have a couple hundred rounds but haven't shot any yet but it appears to be put together as well as any just by looking at it.

I haven't used that ammo but also suspect it would work. I've had no problems with any 7.62x39 I've tried in my WASR and SKS, even old 1960's milsurp.

the only problem i've ever had with my SKS is feeding problems and that's from me swapping out the factory mag for a detachable. if it can make it into the chamber, it's fired. and i've always bought the cheap crap from where ever i could find it. i used to live near an Academy and they sold this stuff for $2.99 a box. man, i might slip it to my mama if i could get 762x39 for that now.

For target shooting I'd say go for it. For defense I steer clear of the bimetal jacket Russian Fmj stuff. Anything with the 8m3 JHP bullet buy it up or m67 stuff with a true copper jacket. I buy up as much 8m3 stuff or Hornady ballistic tip stuff I can find.

When ammo says "non-corrosive", it's not :D

Never shot that brand before but like others are saying, the sks or ak models don't have preferences. 123 grains seems in the ballpark! Good luck

I've put about 500 rounds of that through my norinco AK without a single ftf/fte. accuracy is relatively good for cheap bulk ammo, and it didn't seem to shoot any dirtier than wolf or tulamo
