Anyone remember this stuff? Came in a clear sort of blister pack with a paper back, 10 rounds per pack. I'm curious as to why this will cycle an AK47 but not an SKS. My wife loved shooting this stuff due to the low recoil.

So you have the M43 "Ub" short range or the regular East German M43. Both should be corrosive.

I don't know the bullet construction of the short range ammo, but if I recall correctly the M43 has a mild steel core.
