- Q & A
The 7.62x39mm cartridge came out in 1944 with the original purpose of Soviet military use. The process of designing it took some time and started out with a number of Soviet planning meetings and committees before being turned over to some of that nation’s leading weapons designers. Its design was heavily influenced by the German Mkb 42(H) and the United States’ own M1 carbine, and once it came out, it saw quite a bit of use. It remained in heavy use for thirty years, and even though it doesn’t seen regular military use anymore it’s still one of the most widely used intermediate rifle cartridges.
At 122 grain these are fairly lightweight rounds which allows them to move even faster. They’re FMJ rounds specifically designed for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. Each round bursts from the muzzle of your rifle with astounding speed at a muzzle velocity of 2396 feet per second and hits with serious force at a muzzle energy of 1555 foot-pounds. Tula produces this ammunition using their unique bimetal layering process, alternating thin layers of steel and copper to make steel casings. Finished rounds have berdan primer to ensure ignition and are coated in a special polymer for dependable cycling. These rounds are designed to be non-corrosive.
You get 500 target rounds in this single box of ammunition, so you can spend some extended quality time with your rifle. It’s made by Tula, a Russian manufacturer that’s been in business since 1712. 300 years is a long time to be making ammunition, and Tula prides themselves on keeping up with the latest technology throughout the years. Ammunition is manufactured at their longtime plant in Tula, Russia, and is loaded to SAAMI or CIP specifications. If you want to be a high-volume shooter with your 7.62x39mm-chambered rifle but don’t want to go broke doing it, give Tula a try.
(This ammunition is steel-cased. Some ranges do not allow rounds with steel cases, so make sure you double check before trying to use this ammunition at your area range.)
