View Full Version : What to feed my new AK?

November 17, 2012, 01:40 PM
Well the election is over, and I felt it was time to acquire an AK made from foreign parts (Arsenal-Bulgarian) before the next importion ban or UN treaty forbids this (I think this is coming soon to a shore near you). What do I feed this thing: Brown Bear, Tula, Wolf, or Golden tiger?

Any advantage of one brand over the other?

The intented use is target shooting/plinking.

I feed mine the cheapest steel cased stuff I can find.

Considering both accuracy and reliability, here’s the order I have found. Best to worse.

Golden Bear
Silver Bear
Brown Bear

I'm a fan of Golden Tiger (http://www.sgammo.com/product/golden-tiger/1000-rds-762x39-fmj-bt-golden-tiger-124-grain-ammo). It seems to be the most accurate and cleanest 7.62x39 I have run through my SKS or converted Saiga.

Feed it anything you can get. My WASR eats everything I feed it.

Whatever is the most affordable. AKs aren't picky. I feed my 74 old tins of surplus.

If an AK cant feed the nastiest cheapest 7.62x39 you can find such as Tula it ain't a AK 47

I shoot Tula I buy at Malmart. I ordered some Wolf but haven't fired any yet. My Wasr's, Saigas and SKS's run the Tula well

Surplus, Tula, Wolf, really any thing that is cheap.

Whatever you feel like.

The AK was designed to be used with the crappiest ammo the worker's paradise could produce for it.

It's an AK.

If the tolerances on it were any looser, it would fall apart just by picking it up.

Shoot whatever you want through it. You may have to clean it once a year, if that often.
