    Get one of the Tula Arsenal machined SKS if you can. Wish I had bought mine back when I sold it to a friend. Any thing you hunt with 30/30 can be hunted with the 7.62x39.

    Pure lead or almost pure lead has that purplish color.. i just melted 20lbs of bullet cores and it had that color. The 80lbs of mystery hard lead didnt have that hue.
