    I have a chance that I could get an AR at a decent price but I'm still considering the AK. Are the bullets for an AR more than those of an AK 7.62x39?

    500 rounds of wolf .223 are $130, $120 for silver bear, 200 rounds of prvi are $66. thats .24 for junk, .33 for good stuff

    1000 rounds of wolf 7.62 are 170, 20 s&b is $6.
    thats .17 for junk, .30 for reloadable brass

    You'll have to decide whats a deal breaker for you, the ak will generally have cheaper ammo but at the moment I don't believe it is significantly so.

    A friend of a friend might be selling his AR w/ a scope for about the same price of a new Lancaster AK, but I'm not sure about the condition.....:hs:

    AK's will run just fine on that "junk", can't say the same for an AR.

    I feel the AR is the popular girl, will only want expensive bullets in her while the AK is the slut that'll take anything

    This is quite possibly the best way to describe the AR/AK dynamic.

    AK ammo has normally been in stock almost everywhere lately, where as .223 not so much (at least where I frequent).

    Then my SKS must be a facial/pee/scat loving 100% prostitute. I could write "7.62x39" on a golf tee and it would chamber and go off.
