- Q & A
7.62x39mm was created in the Soviet Union during World War II. In 1943 the Technical Council of the People’s Commissariat for Armaments to talk about the need for a new intermediate rifle cartridge council and decided the new cartridge had to be suitable for use in a wide variety of infantry weapons from semi-auto carbines to selective-fire rifles to light machine guns. In order to fulfill those requirements a committee of renowned Soviet designers was formed; the committee started out with 314 cartridge designs, which they narrowed down to 8 viable options to actually build and test. The first cartridge they chose was the 7.62x41mm, but after some use it was clear there were improvements needed in accuracy and penetration, and the 7.62x39mm was designed.
These 7.62x39mm rounds are fairly light at 124 grain. They’re FMJ rounds and as such do not expand on impact; FMJ rounds punch through the target and keep going, making a trustworthy backstop a must. Each round leaves the barrel of your rifle with fantastic speed at a muzzle velocity of 2375 feet per second and delivers an enormous impact with a muzzle energy of 1552 foot-pounds. These rounds are produced in fresh brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. This ammunition is a great choice for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.
