    Get a converted Saiga by Rifle Dynamics and a couple cases of Wolf FMJ (any grain).
     

  3. wolf fmj is that a better brand ammo than the others ?
     
  4. a converted saiga is that turning it from a rifle to a shotgun?

    Try J&G sales.

    After your first large purchase,

    they will send you a nice monthly flyer.

    Them have drum mags, and some of the best,

    if not the best bulk ammo sales on

    the net, after you factor in shipping.

    As to stocks, I prefer the standard non-folding shoulder

    in synthetic, but that's just a personal choice.

    Wolf ammo sucks in hand guns this I know so I would not expect much more out of the rifle ammo

    Just field strip and clean your rifle, barrel, and chamber,

    (especially the chamber)

    before you go to shoot. The cosmoline they use as a

    preservative can cause major grief, otherwise.

    AKs are famous for eating any kind of shootable ammo,

    and I never found a brand my AK or SKS couldn't easily

    cycle.

    Many of us, myself included, however, have had major

    problems cycling ammo, due to a chamber which should have been

    properly cleaned before the initial range trip...

    OP, I have a converted saiga and it will eat Wolf all day long. I have yet to have a problem with Wolf in my rifle. I use it in my AR as well. Tula works great too. That being said, you should do what therewolf says before shooting it the first time. I believe your question about converted saiga's was answered in another thread right?

    Best advice I can give you is to shoot the snot out of your new gun before you do any mods. You may even find you'll like it just the way it comes.

    There is nothing wrong with Wolf ammo. Eastern block ammo in an eastern block gun. Why wouldn't that work? :confused:

    Great price on 7.62x39 here:

    +1, wolf is all i use in my sks and never had an issue. Ive shot some in my AR with no problems there as well. Ive also never used wolf handgun ammo so i cant comment on it but i cant imagine it would suck if thier rifle ammo is good.

    No need to apologize for your opinion brad, maybe your firearm just doesnt shoot it very well. Two firearms of the same type and brand will shoot different believe it or not.

    No you stated Wolf sucked in your handgun so therefore sucked in rifles even though you appear to have no experience w/ it. The majority of people get nothing but good service from Wolf. I use it in everything, rifles and pistols.

    Never used it in pistols, but every rifle i've ever had fired wolf without issue. It's inexpensive ammo that feeds, fires, and ejects with zero issues, IME anyway
