    Has anyone found a decently grouping ammo for these that does not break the bank? It's a 1:12 twist, so I am told heavier will be better. So far I have tried silver bear and prvi ammo, both were grouping 3"+ at 100 yards. I was a little dismayed, my SKS was able to beat that with tech sights...
