What i have seen about the rounds tells me it's just a commie 30-30 ballistically. But I still get several, that's not a pig caliber comments. Does anyone have any good or bads about the caliber, assuming decent ammo is used and the gun is not stretched past 300m(the range I was told it was designed for shooting people within)? Would be used in N/NW Texas if that matters. Next, the gun for the round. We have a few SKS's, and are looking at buying 2 more ARs. I have read some bad things about the x39 in ARs in regards to magazines, but haven't been able to pick one up since the new people got in. Does anyone have any comments on SKS or AR for the 7.62x39?
