last year I got my first try first buck with the mosin nagant...this year I am trying again same way but my girlfriend is trying for her first and all I have for her to use is the SKS///cant afford much for a scope..at best I will get a 40$ scope ...any advice on good ammo or inexpensive scope brands????
I'll second what su106 & HM have already said. I have one rifle with a Tasco 3x9x40 scope and have successfully hunted with it for several years. As for hunting with Core Lokt ammo -- That's all I use.
SKS -- 7.62x39? Go to Cabelas.com. I just looked at their catalog and found some in that caliber for around $13 for a box of 20. (Not Core-Lokt, but still a reputable brand.)
