Anyone here have any experience with this ammo in their SKS?

I've an opportunity to pick up some cheap, but am wondering if it's soft primered and will double like Remington, Winchester, etc or has a harder mil-spec type primer.

don't know by experience, but PMC makes ammo for the RoK army, so bet it's got mil primers
I have a few cases of PMC in 5.56 and never had a problem it


The issue was in 7.62 x 39 with inertia firing pins and the hardness of the primer. It's usually good ammo for me too in other calibers.

I did call PMC and they indicated it was a typical commercial primer but the person I talked to didn't seem to "get it" as far as what I was asking either.

....guess I'll just try it and see :^)
I've used it in both SKS and AK rifles. It never seemed to cause any problems. I do, however, keep my firing pins, and the channel they sit in, clean. :D
