Yugoslavian SKS / Re: Scored My First Yugo!
« Last post by Larry D. on Today at 04:32:04 AM »
Would definitely like to see her in all her glory when you're able!

I'll take some pictures  pretty soon. Not sure if I'm smart enough to post them..... nea1
I have some of my Chinese rifle too. I need to get these into the serial data base.
 

 


A: A good deal on bulk ammo, and an better excuse to take a day off of work.

A word of advice on ammo: Try out a bunch of different kinds in smaller quantities first. Modern Russian/Ukrainian steel case, berdan primed ammo has a reputation for pierced primers when fired out of the sks.

Check spent casings regularly for any deep strikes and pierced primers, as well as any deformations to the casings.

I have some different types around, but it's mostly newer Russian stuff. I have a small quantity of Chicom stuff, too.

I'll beat the drum again for the best ammo choice for your new acquisition: Yugoslav M67! Get an original "oiler" and put some Ballistol in it-all's well.

I actually have 3 of the round, brass oilers with leather cases. Why Ballistol, as opposed to something else?

On another note, I sent the guy I got it from and asked if the beat up one with the trench art sold. If not, I think I'm gonna see what I can do.
He had several SKS's out for sale, and the most expensive one was $275.00
Some were neutered due to the ban, but 3 or 4 weren't.

Well..that kinda make sense I guess, considering I haven't shot one in about 4 years and any x39 ammo in my pile is.... at least 8 years old.  At least there is an explanation behind the reasoning now.. :o  chuckles1


Too busy and to many other toys to play with :). Maybe... I will go buy a box or four of this newer modern stuff and see what happens.   Eehh.. one day.

Uhmm... think1 don't you mean boxer primers have that reputation, considering most all commie military ammo and commercial combloc ammo is....berdan primed

No, I suspect Boris is talking about popped primers in new production steel cased Berdan stuff that seems to give everyone the worst headaches.  You never heard about popped primers with 70's Chinese surplus or Yugo M67 (or original Russian M43 for that matter), but the past 15 years to current production Wolf, Tulammo, Red Army Standard, and even Golden Tiger and the Bear flavors to some extent have many documented issues.  Of course, they are all contracted to four or five ammo plants and production shifts around every once in a while, so there may be a common denominator there  Maybe the primer alloy is too brittle, or it's too thin, or the energetic inside the primer cup is more powerful?   dntknw1

I do know the Murray's 'neck and throat' procedure allows a bit more room before the bullet contacts the lands, so it appears internal pressure or perhaps the pressure change rate has something to do with it. I also know that the Sino-banian I had major popped primer issues with resolved itself when I took a stone to the end of the FP and rounded it off a bit as it was very square with a flat face and sharp corner.

It's one of those mysterious issues that come along and bite you in specific guns once in a while.

Since this is my first Yugo, what am I looking for?

Is this one that we have in the database already?

Edit:  I got too curious and spent the time to find it:

Looks like 60U7377. I've got it just haven't put it up due to the photobucket fiasco.  Blank stock, EP'd TG. No thanks, not for that kind of coin...guy is mighty proud of everything he's got, I'll give him that.

It's a 59/66 and it appears to have been fired very little.
The gas block was clean except for cosmo. Bore is very nice as well.

Sounds like a winner!
