7.62x39mm has been around since 1944 when it was first put into production for the Soviet’s RPD, which was a light hand-held machine gun. It’s better known for its use in the SKS and AK-47, both of which remain popular after decades of use. One reason the 7.62x39mm is popular is because it has a reputation for cycling well in extreme temperatures. According to tests it keeps on firing in temperatures ranging from -50 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius (-58 degrees Fahrenheit to 122 degrees Fahrenheit). Today the AK-47 is the most common gun chambered in this cartridge.
These particular 7.62x39mm rounds are manufactured by Red Army Standard. Each round is 123 grain which makes these rather lightweight for the cartridge size. Being lighter enables them to fly towards targets at higher speeds and also reduces felt recoil somewhat. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. Target rounds such as these can actually travel for miles when fired from a rifle, so make sure you know your target and what is beyond it. This ammunition is meant for target practice and plinking.
