A classic that all those who shot in the 80’s and 90’s know well. The spitting image (save a couple of slight changes to aesthetics) of the military surplus rounds for the AK-47, clones and SKS platform, this round is an obvious winner. This newer version is actually just as good as the older military surplus ammunition, but it has definitive benefits over its predecessor. The non-corrosive primer and powder make it easier to like this ammunition, and the non-lacquered steel casing means less sticky residue on your fingers from loading. The steel cartridge case feeds reliably in most firearms chambered for this round and the FMJ design is in the same grain weight as the original (123 grains). The terminal ballistics are substantially similar.
For those who want cheap ammunition to shoot out of their AK variant/clone or any other 7.62x39 firearm, this is not a choice, it’s the obvious choice. The low cost, high reliability, excellent consistency and longevity on the shelf means it is a special kind of bargain for high volume shooters. This round excels in all 7.62x39 firearms, but is particularly good for military style surplus firearms with semi-auto actions.
