The 7.62x39mm was designed in the Soviet Union in 1944 for the original purpose of feeding the RPD and then the SKS and AK-47. It remains popular in part due to its affordable price but also for its knockdown power and performance despite conditions. For example, it’s tested well and functioned in temperatures ranging from -50 degrees Celsius (-58 degrees Fahrenheit) to 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit), making it useful in extreme temperatures in a way not all cartridges can manage. Today it’s used all around the world for a variety of reasons and here in the States it’s used both for plinking and hunting game up to the size of white tail deer.
At 123 grain these are considered lightweight rounds for the 7.62x39mm, and that means they’re going to soar down-range at even greater speeds. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds, so they’re not going to expand on impact but will simply penetrate your target and continue traveling. Rifle rounds can travel for miles before coming to a stop, so it’s vitally important to have a reliable backstop in place during range time. Each of these rounds moves down-range like lightning at a muzzle velocity of 2460 feet per second and hammers its point home with a muzzle energy of 1659 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.
There are 20 target rounds in this box of ammunition from Prvi Partizan. That’s just enough for a light snack for your big, bad rifle, so you might want to consider getting a few boxes to keep you both going. Prvi Partizan produces these rounds in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, and that means you can burn through the box, collect the spent casings, reload them, and feed your gun all over again. Ammunition is manufactured at their plant in Uzice, Serbia. If you want to feed your 7.62x39mm-chambered firearm without breaking the bank, try Prvi Partizan, but by all means, feed your gun!
