    Monarch Ammo 7.62x39 question

    I see monarch Ammo on sale at a LGS 4.99 a box of 20 rounds.
    I was thinking in buying some but wonder if this ammo is any good not to damage the bore.
    Gun in question 1952 Russian SKS.
    My son who has 2 of them is not one to clean guns until they malfunction.
    Grandkids love shooting the sks

    I am not familiar with that brand, but I am familiar with the SKS. It is designed to eat the crappiest com bloc garbage out there, so I wouldn't worry about it.

      I need a SKS.
      I feel like I've been saying that for two years.

        I believe Monarch is made by Barnaul (brown bear, silver bear) and should be good to go.

          Classic is the only online retailer that seems to still have a few. I picked up a yugo (they say it is serbian) before the last price bump.

              MONARCH (Academy Sports) – Barnaul currently makes the steel-cased ammunition for Academy Sports' MONARCH brand. (Academy Sports is an American purchasing and importing group that buys foreign made ammo and resells it under their brands at their own chain of stores).

                Picked up a Chinese Sks and put a Tapco stock on it. One of my favorite rifles. And it has digested any ammo brand I put through it in its caliber.
