I would like to ask if anyone has used or heard about the brass cased alllegedly Bosnian 7.62x39 ammo for sale at The Sportsmans' Guide? They 'say' it is 'match'. I wonder 'cause I know the difference it makes to use real match grade ammo in my bolt .308s -vs- surplus and wonder what this stuff might do for group size in my AKs and SKSs. Anybody?

I'll have to order some and try it, then report here.

Note: Some AK's are capable of excellent accuracy for the platform, but only with decent ammo. And there are many silhouette pistols and bolt-action rifles that have been starving for accurate 7.62x39 ammo, which has been a handload-only proposition for years. I know of a certain J.D. Jones SSK Contender rework that's sub-MOA at 100 yards in 7.62x39. :D

Thanks for the effort Gewehr. It is stuff like this that makes the forum work.

Nope, posted it and forgot about it. I can not recall why but I never bought the ammo.
