When You Start Searching Your Mountain of Ammo....

And find 7.62x39mm.  I have not owned an SKS in many years.  These were part of the "assault weapons for the clueless" program that several Bay Area gun rights activists started in the early 1990s.  The theory was that when the totalitarian state finally dropped its mask, many conservatives and even some liberals (not progressives) would suddenly realize that they needed a rifle to help resist Leviathan.  SKSs were so cheap at the time (about $100 at dealer cost) that many people I knew bought several and many cases of 7.62x39mm.

Still working through the mountain.  I have at some point in past traverses seen 115 grain FMJ 9mm +P+.  As you might expect from the extra +, this is very hot stuff, intended for submachine guns.  I understand that Browning Hi-Powers can safely use it, unlike many other 9mm pistols.  If I find it, I might be willing to swap it for +P.  One of you must have a Ingram M11.

US Govt. used to issue +P+ 9mm ammo. The fact that it was tough on pistols was the impetus for the joint creation of the .40 cal ammo by S&W and the US Border Patrol.
