tulammo 7.62×39 review
Who Knew? A Guide to 7.62 Ammo
Designed at the tail end of World War II, the 7.62×39 ammo was optimized for self-loading rifles. The case is highly tapered, contributing to easier feeding and extraction, but also resulting in the extremely curved and very distinctive AK magazines known the world over. The first Soviet military production 7.62x39mm cartridge was designated the M43, spec’d out with a 123-grain steel core and copper-plated boat tail bullet along with a Berdan-primed steel case.
Most of the domestically manufactured commercial ammo in this guide use brass cases and Boxer primers, while the former Eastern Bloc churns out pallet after pallet of steel-cased and Berdan-primed ammo. To help mitigate corrosion, steel cases and jackets feature some sort of coating or treatment, such as lacquer, polymer, or zinc.
The round can take a beating in the action. Still, I don’t usually see problems with brass cases in 7.62x39mm AKs, though brass can get ripped up in 5.56mm AKs or out-of-spec chambers.”
Regarding primers: Boxer primers are the standard here in the states — the primer has a cup and anvil, while the pocket in the case has one hole in the center, making it easy to reload. It’s in the case instead with two flash holes. The difficulty of removing Berdan primers and lack of support in the reloading marketplace makes reloading them much more challenging — most U.S. shooters don’t seem to bother trying.
