    What will you be using the rifle for?
    If its for hunting the 7.62x39 would probably be the better option.

    OK.
    Ballistics .243Win. a bit worse than ballistics 7.62x54R-fact.

    On what distance .243Win. 7.62x39 will recover (100m.-200m.-300m.)?
    Absolute decline of these calibers on distance 200 meters practically identically.
    Energiya higher at 7.62x39.
    P.S.
    1.In all of situations we examine a standard bullet for SKS 123gr.-124gr. and 100gr.-110gr. for .243Win..
    2."Accuracy? Hunting? Plinking?"-complete comparison.

    If you want an accurate firearm the SKS is not what you need. However, Ruger makes a bolt action 7.62X39 and that would be a decent rifle for hunting and plinking. I know a person who has a Ruger 7.62X39 for the neighbor kids to rent and he said that several of them have killed deer with it.

    Hi friends.
    A question is based on a desire to fill a niche between calibers 7.62x39 and 30-06.
    In relation to application of this caliber - I search most "universal"
    CXP1,CXP2-on long and middle distances and CXP3 on short distances.
