What the bargain price for this stuff may I ask?Found some low recoil plastic training ammo in 7.62x51 for cheap. It says it’s good for 150 yards, low recoil, etc.
Anyone ever use the stuff? Seems like it might be an interesting option for those of us with bolt rifles in that caliber.
The stuff I’ve seen says it won’t operate the action on a SA, but is good to ~150yd. Not an issue if shooting at a 200yd range with a BA rifle.Yeah, I have some, made in Germany 7.62X49. It was originally sold as low penetration for indoor assault etc. (Way back then)
Anyway, I've had that stuff for about 15 years, and originally it shot well and worked the action of my SKS. Shot a little bit last year and it no longer operates the action of that same gun. I know my storage wasn't the best, but it was in the original plastic bubble packs of about 10 rounds each.
It originally was not "weak" at all and had good terminal expansion at 100+ yds.
These that I’m looking at explicitly say that they will not work the action of a SA. That’s fine by me running a bolt rifle.These must be a totally different type than I had. I doubt 10 gr would work the action of any semi auto. The stuff I had was plastic CORE stuff, metal outer skin and steel, (non-re loadable) cases.
