You'll have to forgive my greeness, but someone's selling ammo for my rifle by me, and it seems to be a good deal. $250 for 1000 rounds. I live in the NY area where firearms stuff is super expensive.

Is there such thing as bad ammo? Why do I get the feeling I'm about to buy some useless ammo and throwing 250 dollars in the trash. The listing says romanian hotshot. My sks is romanian too if that makes a difference.

I have an SKS...I also live in NY...I shoot whatever is cheapest.....My rifle performs fine with whatever I run through it (mainly wolf)....Accuracy may vary but then again its an SKS and it will never be AR accurate....I would buy it....

Um, seeing how several million rounds of 7.62 soviet were made by several countries (30,40,50?) for over 50 years, I am sure that there are lots of bad rounds. Most military surplus round are unreloadable, steel cased, jacketed in a gliding allow that contains iron. Most importantly, they are corrosive, which requires a little different cleaning EVERY time you shoot. So if you found a case for $250, thats great, used to be that you could pick up two K for a $100.
