I know nothing about it. Thus, in the spirit of gun forums, I will comment!!!
If you have a fantastic, phenomenal platform... the very best way you could possibly get the worst performance out of it is to buy the cheapest craptastic ammo offered. Lacquered, steel case Chi-Com junk would fit that bill. If you had a lousy platform, the best ammo made or the most pain-stakingly crafted handloads wouldn't make a gem out of it.
So I'm not sure where the market is for a decent (or better!) bolt action rifle chambered in 7.62x39 is, but that's never been a practical matter in guns. The only practical matter is "can we sell this?"
With that said, if I were shopping for a 7.62x39 chambered bolt action rifle, I'd be looking at the one offered by CZ. If it isn't twice the price of what Ruger is offering, I'm betting blind that it's a better rifle and better way to go. If it is twice the price of the Ruger (or more) than perhaps the Ruger is the better answer.
But alas, I'd be handloading for it. I don't buy Chi-com trash anything
, but at the top of the list of Chi-Com trash that I don't buy is ammo.
