On your SKS, did you install a scope or just use open sights? Also what type load/brand of ammo did you use? In my SKS I found that either IMR-4198 or the now discontinued WW-680 were the best powders along with a 123 grain SPT .310" bullet. I have a Ruger M-77 MKII Bolt Action rifle in 7.62 X 39 m/m and I've taken several Deer using a .308" 150 grain .30-30 Winchester "Silvertip" bullet using IMR-4198 Powder.
