cheap russian ammo Informative - Good vaue? - amunition

Review by tpebop on 2005-04-11
Here is a heads up on all that cheap Russian ammo. You know Wolf,Barnaul,Silver bear and others. I have used the .223 in an ar 15 with terrible results bad groups and plety of failure to feeds I have seen other using the makarov ammo with decent groups but high failure to feed rate. This stuff is cheap it is verry inexpesive it usualy is steel cased and un reloadable. I have had great result in an ak 47 chambered in 7.62 x 39 however my theory is cheap Russian ammo will work great in a cheap Russian gun so that might be it. I put this in for informative purposes anyone wanting to save money may only get heart break as I have heard the steel case is hard on extractor ,ejectors and chambers but then again if your using an sks ak or mossin nagent maybe it is a good value

Kalshnakov is now making a vodka it is available in a bottle shaped like an ak 47 but it is far from cheap
