- Q & A
The 7.62x39mm cartridge has been around since 1944 and was created by the Soviet Union for use by their military. One of the two most well-known rifles chambered in this round is the SKS – Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova – a rifle that saw front-line use by the Russian military starting in 1945. The SKS has quite a background and although it was replayed in the 1950s by the AK-47, it remained in use for years and is still used today in ceremonies. Today the SKS is popular all over the world due in parts to its affordable price and also because it’s just plain fun to shoot.
If you own an SKS or another gun chambered in 7.62x39mm, take a look at this ammunition manufactured by Wolf. These rounds weigh in at 124 grain, making them fairly lightweight for the cartridge size. Being lighter weight enables them to move down-range at higher speeds and also minimizes felt recoil. These are Soft Point, SP, rounds and begin to expand on impact. SPs expand more slowly than HPs, penetrating more deeply for a larger wound cavity. This ammunition can be used for hunting game the size of whitetail deer and also for target practice.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Wolf you get 20 SP rounds. That’s just enough to get your rifle warmed up, so you might want to consider ordering two – or more. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your rifle at the impressive muzzle velocity of 2330 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1495 foot-pounds. Wolf is a subsidiary of the centuries-old company Tula, and manufactures ammunition at their factory in Tula, Russia. Place your order now and keep your Russian rifle fed with Russian rounds.

- Is this ammo for the public range? Thanks Posted On: 8/16/2014 By: John
- Hello John, These 124gr. SP rounds by Wolf in 7.62x39 do have steel cases and sometimes a bi-metal jacket, so they do attract a magnet. If your range does not allow magnetic rounds, I would suggest a brass cased round.
