The 7.62x39mm was created in 1943 and began to see use in the Russian Army in 1944. It was made after significant back-and-forth among a team of respected designers, and even when they finally agreed on a cartridge they ended up repeatedly changing it. The end result is the cartridge you know so well today, and it has exact specifications:

  • Bullet diameter: .792mm
  • Neck diameter: 8.60mm
  • Shoulder diameter: 10.07mm
  • Base diameter: 11.35mm
  • Rim diameter: 11.35mm
  • Rim thickness: 1.50mm
  • Case length: 38.70mm
  • Overall length: 56.00mm
  • Case capacity: 2.31cm cubed
  • Rifling twist: 240mm

This particular 7.62x39mm ammunition is from Silver Bear, a company that’s a subsidiary of the Barnaul Machine Tool Plant. Barnaul is considered a leader in the production of ammunition in Russia and has been in business since 1869. With almost 150 years of experience they’ve fine-tuned their production process in numerous ways, taking advantage of their location, which allows for better access to the raw materials needed for components, and coming up with ways to save you money. After all, what shooter doesn’t want to function as a high-volume shooter? The cost is what’s often off-putting about it, and Barnaul understands that.

You get 600 rounds of ammunition in this box, so your rifle is going to be pretty well fed. These are lightweight 125 grain rounds. They’re Soft Point rounds capable of rapid energy transfer and controlled expansion on impact. SPs expand more slowly and deeply than HPs, so they create bigger, more devastating wound channels, which can translate into a clean, fast kill. Shot placement is up to you. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your rifle at the astounding muzzle velocity of 2401 feet per second and impacts your target with compelling force. In order to save you money, Barnaul produces these rounds in steel cases, using berdan primer to ensure ignition. If you want to be a high-volume shooter, now’s your chance. Place your order to get the ammo you need at economical prices.
