    I have been all GT for the last few years out of my milled Arsenals, have not worried about cleaning them either just lube and shoot. I used to love to pick up the South African battle packs ten years ago but have not seen them since. Nor have I been to the 1500 gun show here in Indy where I used to get it for about 6 years either.
    Yugo, Tula, Red Army, or anything American never tried it yet. Before I went to Golden Tiger I was mainly Wolf and never had issues. Norinco did not remember and S&B I only had 100 rounds and have not seen since but that is all I run through my H&K VP9.
    Over the past 14 years I have owned about 40 different AK variants, fired probably at least 15 of them and never had a hiccup with 7.62x39. The other calibers were not 100% and were ammo related.

    Here is some German I never shot along with a 10 round blister pack of German Steel core, the last of the Norinco 91-30 yellow box I had and Silver Bear match tip, Brown Bear soft point, and Golden Bear. The 5.45 was from first batch of Wolf that came in after the switch to polymer coating which gave my Romanian SAR2 a few FTF or FTE issues can not remember, and other was ULY 72 gr. which I only saw once and it was a very noticable difference. I would have to take my cleaning rod out when i shot it because it would fly out during rapid fire, I even bounced a round off of the cleaning rod once.

    Have to admit that I bought another 40rd box of Tula at Wally yesterday along with a box of 120gr 300BLK.

    I don't think it really matters but I shoot mostly Wolf Military Classic. It is readily available in my area. No problems whatsoever with it.
    Join us and live in peace, or continue on your present course and face obliteration. The decision rests with you.

    Golden Tiger or one of the Barnaul varieties except for the zinc plated stuff, that goes to crap when stored for very long.

    Video didn't have sound for me. But nice that someone put this together in this format. However, it is a little outdated since Wolf no longer works with or uses ammo from Tula. They are now using Barnaul for their Polyformance and Military Classic Lines.

    Like the Silver Bear? In what ways does it go to crap? Case deterioration or power? Just asking. I have a good bit of the stuff, haven't had it long.

    Perhaps I didn't store it properly but the zinc plating started flaking, leaving black crap underneath. Was in 50 cal ammo cans, at the time I blamed the ammo, not had issues with anything else.

    Okay, and thanks for explaining that. What I do have is still in the small blue cube boxes with the paper inside. I've never had a whole lot of the zinc plated stuff, but I like to know what to watch out for. What I scored on a trade a few weeks ago is already loaded up in magazines hoping to shoot this week.

    Neat! Where did you get the Yugo tracer?
