Buying Polish PPS-43C Pistol 7.62x25 - what is the best "Bulk" ammo?????

Polish PPS-43C Pistol 7.62x25

Buying one of these on Tuesday I think they look cool. Plan on shooting bowling pins and pumpkins etc with it at around 50 yards . Reading that some Bulgarian and Polish ammo doesn't function real well.

What Bulk ammo should I be looking for as for "Reliability" first and "Accuracy" second?

Anything else I should know about this round?

Thank You..........

As if you have options on what to buy! The days of cheap bulk tok ammo have slipped away like the value of the dollar.

You can get old surplus corrosive ammo 130ish bucks for a tin of 800 rounds or you can get new fmj for 30 to 50 cents a round.

Here's links to a low cost supplier. There may be others cheaper, but I haven't found them.|829|843|829|843

Thanks that is the best I have seen yet. I bought a 100 rounds today for $24 just to try it out.

You sure it's a good idea to buy that particular pistol? I've had one and was not at all pleased with it, and there seem to be quite a few other negative reviews out there. Although it looks virtually identical to the PPS-43 SMG, it's actually quite mechanically distinct in operation in a way that renders it problematic.

Too late already bought it. Going to range on Friday to see how it shoots. I did see some negative reviews, but still thought it was worth the gamble.

To sellfish to tell.

Sorry although I'm not in the market today for 7.62x25s, I never give up my sources, esp for good surplus, and those have mostly dried up.

Try to stay away of some of the old crap.

Do they make or have a magula for the pps 43 in 7.62 round

I have a pps 43 in the 7.62x 25 round that would make it easier to load if
they make the lula or a maglula for it to help loading easier to do, LMK,
