I think you probably just about nailed it, with the only ammo available being PRVI and hornady and both costing well over a dollar a round it isn't nearly as appealing as mosin nagants where you could shoot a full mag for the cost of a single 8x56 round. I recently watched a youtube video of a pair of guys shooting one and they were whining the entire time about recoil. after sporterizing one of my mosin nagants I realized that some of those 10 pound rifles may have been 10 pounds for a reason couple a larger bullet with a larger casing in a considerably lighter rifle I would probably be wise to only shoot it on cold days(extra layers). I have never heard of the yugo M95Ms were they only made in small numbers or did the surplus just dry up before my time?
