Spacesaver what you say makes complete sense and I thank you for this insight.
Hey big moe,
Was revisiting this thread and wondering if you've fiddled with your SKS anymore. I'd be interested in hearing how you did and what you did to make your SKS shoot better; after all, thats how we get that "insight". When all works as it should you should go out and shoot it at known distances out to @300m to get a feel for what it'll do as well as bullet drop. Try the same with commercial hunting ammo, too. THEN, go get a crate or two of surplus ammo and have at 'er!!
PS- post some pics, can't have too many pics of SKS's!!
If you eliminate the impossible whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth-Spock
