    Stripper Clips?

    I've had a heck of a time sourcing SKS ammo. I keep finding the stuff that isn't already loaded on stripper clips - I ended up just buying a case without the clips.

    Has this practice been discontinued or something? I like the stripper clips...where can I source some?

    Thanks

    The stuff on stripper clips was the Czech ammo that has largely dried up. The practice of loading 7.62x39 ammo on stripper clips was limited to them AFAIK because the VZ58 is designed to use them. Since the clips can't be used to load AK mags (And that's what most of the combloc would have commonly used) it made no sense for them to go thru the extra expense and trouble of loading them on clips that they can't use anyway.

    Budget shooter supply still has some czech I think. I don't buy surplus 7.62soviet unless it's czech on stripper clips.

    SKS rifles also used stripper clips like the vz58.
    You can use strippers clips and a charger to load ak47 magazines like you would with ar15 mags.
    Not sure if that was common practice though, must not have been.

    Cool. This is good to know. I was under the impression the surplus ammo I was buying was from Ukraine...the case I just bought is Ukrainian but I'm happy to buy Ukrainian products at this point in time anyways. I had taken it for granted that it always comes on the clips

    Strewth, I'm keeping my jars. Gram's on board for canning this year in exchange for being in on a perogy party in the fall heh. (Little does she know newbies are on peeling duty heh. It's a battle to be a perogy pincher) Satain, you're on.
