I keep reading threads about there Romey's jammin, It's usually an HP problem.
My .02, round off the feed ramp a bit a little polish and you got a shootin machine.
Anybody concur?

I'm just going to keep shooting FMJs, I've got a few SPs I'm going to try and and see which I like but I can't see using HPs. I've heard that they don't really even expand.

I tried that...didn't work....tried annother mag.....didn't work...tried cleaning every surface to a mirror shine......didn't work....tried opening up the recoil spring a little.....helped, but didn't work.....went back to FMJ works perfect every time.....I simply give up...I wish someone would find the solution, because I saw hollowpoints at the gunshow for $2.oo a box!!! I would have loaded up on em!!

What mags are you using? I've only had problems with poly ones
Let me know if you can get SP 's for 2 bucks that would be the the best
(for those zombie attacks) LOL

Never had any problems with hollow points in any of my AK's except the Chinese ones (which I no longer own).

Why does a HP jam? It's still pretty pointy and shouldnt get hung up. I have a yugo, rom, and hungarian homebuild that eats this stuff up. 2 mak-90s also eat this stuff for breakfast.

Mine will only eat FMJ. I use the HP for the SKS's.

All I shoot in my WASR is HPs and have never had any jams.

about 6-8K HP rounds down my WASR-10 with no problems. except for about 800 rnds of FMJ silverbear, all the 7.62x39 i own is HP now. it seems to be alot more accurate for me then the FMJ stuff in general.

I had a guy at the range tell me that the reason it wouldn't feed hollowpoints is because of the two sliding wire loops(don't know what else to call them) inside of the recoil spring were rubbing together in the center causing the problem...I took a key and tried to pry them apart a little , jamming it between the recoil spring and the center piece...it still rubbs a little....I'm going to try this some more, maybe with some snap ring pliers and see if it helps.... I'll let you all know...Cheers

Luckily all my AKs eat hollow points like candy.

OK.. To put it simply, I'm bored as shit this evening, So I decided I would try several things to try to get my rifle to feed hollowpoints....I tried the recoil spring thing...it made the action smoother, but no help feeding...I tried driving the rails upward a little...no help...I took a pair of vice grips and bent the feed lips up a little in the front to make the bullet tip tilt up a little while in the magazine...Bingo!! It seems to feed the three hollowpoints I have quite well now...The true test will be if it will feed several hundred ok.....gosh darn it, I need MORE AMMO AGAIN!!!! I hope this works... I'm going to try to find some hollowpoint ammo and see if this worked..if it does I'll let you all know....if anyone would like to donate ammo to the cause my e-mail adress is....... See ya! (if you really want to send ammo, E-mail me!!)
