    SO I finally am going to be ordering ammo for my 91/30, and I was wondering what ammo (both country wise and weight wise). Thanks for the help guys :wavey:

    I stick with light ball ammo for my MN's, usually 147gr or 148gr.

    Both are fine, just depends on your range.

    I've got a bunch of hungarian I've used it on a few range trips no complaints about it, I think its steel core but haven't tested it.

    I've used about 500 Czech rounds to date through my M38. Not one problem. I think it's light ball. 147gr.

    I have used the Czech steel core (silver tip) and the Hungarian heavy ball (yellow tip) and have yet to have a FTF. Good stuff.

    I have never ordered from SG, but saw this on surplusrifle this AM. I have gotten everything from AIM Surplus or Southern Ohio Gun.
