The SKS is a semi-auto carbine that got its start in the then-Soviet Union in 1945. Its full name is just a bit longer than what it is most commonly known as – Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, which roughly translates as “self-loading carbine of the Simonov system.” At first the SKS was used as the standard service weapon in Russia, but it was quickly replaced by the AK-47. Even so, it remained in second-line service for many years before fading away entirely, and today it’s used as a ceremonial gun. Outside Russia the SKS has become popular for its economical price and versatility; not only is it fun for plinking but it’s also often used for deer hunting and some use it for home defense as well. If you use your SKS for hunting or home defense, you need defense rounds like these.
At 122 grain these are relatively lightweight rounds, giving them greater speed. They’re HP’s so they expand on impact and decelerate as they penetrate, creating a sizeable wound track. Their deceleration prevents over-penetration, which keeps innocent bystanders safer. These rounds have terrific speed with a muzzle velocity of 2396 feet per second and hit with substantial force, because, after all, they are 7.62x39mm rounds. This is steel-cased ammunition. Tula uses a bimetal layering process, alternating copper and steel, to create the cases, and then coats the finished product with a polymer for improved feeding and ejecting.
There are 20 HP rounds in this box. Tula manufactures them at their plant in Tula, Russia, where they’ve been in business since 1712. They’ve been manufacturing ammunition for three centuries and have gone from supplying their town with ammo for protection from invading nomads to distribution on a global level; Tula is a giant in the industry. All their ammunition is manufactured to SAAMI or CIP standards and made using the latest technology. Whether you want to do some hunting, keep your gun loaded for home defense, or even put holes in targets, these hollow points are a nice choice for your SKS or AK-47. After all, if you’ve got a Russian gun, why not feed it Russian ammo?
(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.)
