I haven't fired mine much, but used gas position #2 and Wolf ammo.

How well does pos #1 work?

Works fine on my RPD but I'm using Chinese ammo. #2 caused excess recoil which you wouldn't think possible with such a heavy weapon - but these do have a lot of moving mass.

Use it on position 1, it doesn't beat itself to death and it is more pleasant to shoot without the extra recoil.

I"ll try it next time.

I wonder why Vector reccomends pos #2?
Probably because it's guaranteed to work with any ammo.
I guess so. But whats weaker than Wolf 123gr?

The weapons designers planned ahead in case they ran across some crappy ammo. I don't know what the ammo was like in the 40's-50's. Also, battlefield conditions are rarely ideal - ice, snow, mud. As far as Vector, maybe they took the suggestion from the manual.
