DON'T GIVE UP THE GUN!!Just the one Yugo 59/66A1 for me, but I think I'm really going to get rid of it after the beating it gave me today.
Granted, the other rifle calibers I'm used to shooting are both .22's (.22lr and .223), but I'm not a very buff guy and have practically no padding on my shoulders, so after 50 rounds of x39 beating against bone I already had a bruise and spend the rest of the afternoon flinching. With the .22lr. I have no problems with .223's, though. Guess that added oomph is a little much for me.
Guess that kills my dream of having an M-24 SWS clone in .300 Win Mag. :angry:
At least I found out it functions 100% with Wolf MC JHP's without having to do a chamber job on it.
One of these slip on Sim's Limb Savers from Cabella's will almost make it feel like your plinking a .22! I kid you not. The SKS steel butt stock was murder on me as I have had surgical reconstruction of my right shoulder and the outer 1/4 of my clavical is missing altogether. Your SKS takes a size small and they really work. The $35 sounds a bit spendy but it is worth every penny and since it's a slip on pad you can swap it onto any rifle with a similarly sized butt stock.
