- Q & A
The 7.62x39mm is perhaps best known for its use in the AK-47. The AK-47, or Automat Kalashnikova, was designed starting in 1945 by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Work on the AK-47 started right as World War II came to a close and it was presented to the Soviet Army for evaluation in 1946. It began to see major production in 1949, which is when it was officially brought into service by the Soviet Army, and before long it was being used by states involved in the Warsaw Pact. Due in part to its ability to perform in extreme temperatures the AK-47 is still used in many countries today and is also a popular gun for target shooting.
This 7.62x39mm is manufactured for your AK-47 – and other 7.62x39mm chambered rifles – by Red Army Standard Ammunition. Each round weighs in at 123 grain which makes them relatively lightweight for the cartridge size. Being so lightweight is what enables these rounds to zip down-range at higher speeds and also keeps felt recoil manageable. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. In fact, target rounds fired from rifles can literally travel for miles before stopping which is one reason you must have a solid backstop in place. This ammunition is meant for target practice and plinking.

Ammo works well -- no misfires, jams, or any ammo related problems I can findon 10/21/2014
I hadn't tried Red Army Standard before but I was looking for some inexpensive ammunition that worked reliably for training with my VZ-58. Currently all 180 rounds that I've tried so far have performed well.
Some people may indicate the ammo is either "dirty", "unreliable", and/or "inaccurate". I found just the opposite and was pleasantly surprised along each of those metrics. My weapon ran reasonably clean, all 180 rounds I tried so far have fired and extracted properly, and I can't blame any of my problems with precision on the ammo.
