I'll have to agree with the above post. Although my SKS has been gone for a few years, I tried many different mags while I had it. I kept going back to the fixed 10 rounder and reloaded with stripper clips.
In fact, I got so quick with the clips that I suffered no disadvantage when doing run+gun couses against guys that were swapping mags in their ARs, AKs, Minis, etc.
With practice you can become suprisingly quick.

After I bought my DR200, the SKS didn't see much use. So I sold it to a younger guy in our shooiting group, who shoots the hell out of it. And he is faster at reloads with clips than I ever was.
