The 7.62x39mm was designed in 1944, and although it was originally meant for the RPD, it quickly became known as the round the SKS and AK-47 are chambered in. Over the decades this rimless, bottleneck rifle cartridge has only gained popularity, mostly due to its significant power and affordable cost. But there’s more to the 7.62x39mm than just those things: this cartridge is capable of performing despite extreme temperatures and has tested well between -50 degrees Celsius (-58 degrees Fahrenheit) and 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahreheit).
These rounds are made by Prvi Partizan, a company that can trace its roots back to Jakob Posinger in 1927. That was the year Jakob agreed to move his shop into the military barracks in Uzice at the request of the Yugoslavian government. It was a success, too; within two years there were 150 team members working for Jakob in those barracks. Because of that success, in 1935 the government decided to gift Jakob with the land necessary to build a stand-alone factory. Today Prvi Partizan continues to operate in that same spot and has gained a reputation for providing competitively priced ammunition to shooters all around the world.
