    SST's seem to be the crowd favorite, anyone had luck with them in a x39 AR on hogs? I have a guy that wants to unload 200 of them for cheap since he sold his rifle. I would be running them in both a 12.5 and a 16 inch KS47's.

    Thanks,

    Juan

    They work great. I have killed 40 or so hogs with them out of a 16in.

    Great result with the bullet in an AR47. Terrible results trying to cycle with a KS47 pistol and several different AK magazines.

    Were you running the PSA buffer in your pistol? Have you tried the same upper on a traditional AR lower with any success?

    It wasn't the buffer.. it wouldn't even cycle by hand without shooting it. The rounds would not feed into the chamber if there was any weight pushing the magazine up and or forward at all.
