7.62x39mm Ammo for Sale!
7.62x39mm is one of the more interesting military cartridges of the 20th Century. The initial development of 7.62x39 ammo actually started during World War 2, although the final design would not see adaptation by the Soviet military until the early days of the Cold War. The Soviet design team imagined one intermediate cartridge that could be used for individual infantry weapons, as well as light machine guns, not unlike NATO counterparts working through their various rifle and cartridge designs seen in the mid-20th Century. The 7.62x39 cartridge was the result. While used in many different rifles, such as the SKS and RPK, 7.62x39 most iconic as being the cartridge used in the AK-47 and later variants. Although up for debate, many historians are of the opinion that the design of the 7.62x39 was heavily influnced by the German 7.92x33 Kurz that was used by the STG44, the grandfather of the modern assault rifle.
After the end of the Cold War, and the fall of the Soviet Union, 7.62x39 started to gain popularity in the US due to the extremely low cost of rifles and ammunition, and the ballistic effectiveness, which was very similar to the 30-30 Winchester, a long-time favorite of hunters. The highly tapered design of the 7.62x39 cartridge case helps it be reliable under a wide range of conditions, but also dictates the need for a highly curved magazine, which is probably the origin of the Banana Clip of pop-culture lore.
It should also be noted that not all 7.62x39 ammo is created equal. Most 7.62x39 uses both a steel cartridge case, and has some level of steel in the projectile, whether a mild-steel core or a copper washed steel jacket. This is important when you’re buying 7.62x39 ammo, as many indoor ranges do not allow the use of any 7.62x39 that sticks to a magnet. Steel cases are harder to recycle, and any type of steel in the projectile increases the risk of damage to their expensive target equipment, especially since 7.62x39 is a full power rifle cartridge. Brands like GECO and Fiocchi offer brass cased 7.62x39 ammo that also uses a traditional copper clad, lead core projectile is generally considered “range-safe” 7.62x39 ammo.
