After sitting on it for a year I now want to get my M48 out and shoot it. So the question is which ammo do I buy, the 50's Yugo or the 70's Romanian ? TIA, Nick

I like both! The Romanian is a lighter bullet, and easier on you for a long day of shooting.

If you can, get some of both, and see if you and your rifle have a preference for either.

I use the 50's Yugo. I can shoot it all day and it the heavier bullet (196 gr.) functions great in my FN49.

The Yugo is the ammo made for that rifle. I like it because the 196gr bullet is regulated to the sights. I can routinely hit a 2' x3' steel gong at 462 yards at our local range. I also shoot alot of the 150gr Turkish ammo from widners because its cheap.

Get that rifle out and shoot it, you will love it. I shoot about 8 cases per year through mine because the ammo is so cheap.

Have fun.

+1 on the Turkish ammo. I think its some of the most fun to shoot...it really bangs you up to! I found that the Romanian stuff is kind of weak...I also go sick of getting gassed out by the punctured primers .

Turk

I prefer Turkish but good luck finding that now. Go with the Yugo. If I had to rank my favorite they would be in order of:

Yugo from the 70's
Turkish
Yugo from the 50's
Albanian
Romanian
Ecuador

Unfortunately it seems everything has dried up but the Romanian and the 50's Yugo

I just picked up some turkish on EE. Got to send out a USPMO in the morning. He still has some left but I think there are others in line. Sadly I only have one case of the 70s Yugo. I had some loose and shot it. Did very well.
