Just got a Yugo SKS not long ago and was going to reload some 7.62X39. Still had some dies from an SKS I had years ago. Looked through my reloading manual, and the only load I could find I already had the powder was using 2400. Anyways went to the range today, loaded a clip, and fired. Action did not cycle. Hand cycled and shot another round. Action did not cycle again. Emptied the mag and put in a clip of some milsurp I also brought. Worked like a champ. The bad thing is these reloads were printing great groups on the target. But I don't exactly like shooting an SKS single shot. The recoil did not feel much different to me than from the milsurp. Kind of wondering if the 2400 is just too fast a powder and is messing with the workings. Have to shoot off the rest of the 100 rounds I made, then come up with a different recipe. Never going to use pistol powder on a rifle again.

Why are you reloading 7.2x39 anyway? Are you just trying to squeeze out more accuracy from the SKS?

my Yugo was leaking a bit past the grenade launcher "valve". seeing as how i could not find any grenades to launch, i closed it off and cured a few "ills"

That's funny-- maybe he wanted to hit the broadside of a barn. :D

Just rag'en ya--- when you want a gun that fires no matter how dirty it is-- but don't care too much about hitting something--- SKS is the answer. How can 4 Billion Reds be wrong? lol

Alight I'll stop now. :)

I thought that's what an AK is for. My SKS is much more accurate.
