recently stumbled upon some 1987 polish mesko ammo for the sks. Manufactured in factory #21. It seems there really isnt much info online about this ammo. 700 rounds in each "spam" can. Being its late 80's production im expectin each one to go bang as ive shot late 60's romanian surplus with zero issues whatsoever(surprisingly accurate ammo out of my tula) this was purchased for the obvious reason of cheap plinking ammo. So my question is anybody have any experience with this ammo?

Your more then welcome! I shot off a hundred or so today and the tula ate the stuff up without any problems, and would say it was just as accurate as the romanian stuff ive been shooting.

Nice looking wooden box.

Shooting non-corrosive is getting expensive on the XCR. Time to switch to corr.

I've fired it, about two years ago out of an SKS and a CZ 858. Honestly, I wasn't that much of a fan. It was dirtier than most surplus, accuracy was okay, though.

It's not the worst I've ever fired, but not the best.
