    Just my experience, but I've got an SKS that I've put a Murray's spring loaded firing pin in because anytime I chambered a round and didn't fire it I'd find a pretty good indentation in the primer. After putting in the spring loaded firing pin the gun still does it with commercial primers (I use Federal), but hardly makes a mark on military primers.

    My AK, and LR-308 dent commercial primers to a scary degree as well.

    Since the day I got my AK I have only fed it Brown Bear. I heard some bad thngs about Wolf.

    I have never had a problem accept the onr below and have put over 1500 rounds through her.

    The last time I went to the range I had 1 cartridge that didn't fire. Ejected it and it had an indentation but didn't look deep enough.

    Other than that... nothing. I don't think I'd use anything else.

    Only reliability trouble I've ever had w/ my Norinco SKS was the first day I took it to the range. I thought I'd cleaned out all the cosmoline ... wrong! I took it home & tore it down further and got it really clean.

    I've fired several surplus & foreign types of ammunition through it. Lately Brown Bear, but I've got a little bit (my wife thinks it's more than a little ... but who's counting?) of Yugo stuff I haven't tried yet.

    I did try some handloads a few years back. To keep the cost down I loaded hard-cast lead bullets of .308 diameter rather than .311. Boy, was that stupid! I had to measure my groups w/ a yardstick!

    Most versions of the AK-47 have floating firing pins. This means that the firing pin can contact the cartridge before the bolt locks home. It sometimes possible to experience out of battery detonations when commercial primers are used.
