7.62x39 ammo is an intermediate rifle cartridge closely associated with the famously reliable SKS and AK-47 rifles that use it, this caliber is one of the most popular in the world despite its replacement in Russia by the 5.45x39mm in the 1970s. The first gun chambered for this cartridge, however, was actually the RPD light machine gun.
7.62x39mm ammo fires a 122 or 123 grain full metal jacket bullet at about 2,300 feet per second. These specifications produce excellent results at close to medium range while generating manageable levels of recoil.
Most 7.62x39mm ammo available in the US is imported from Russia; brand names to look for include Tula, Wolf, and Barnaul's Bear series. All three of those manufacturers offer cheap bulk 7.62x39 ammo that'll have your AK asking for more. Today's Russian-produced rounds are typically non-corrosive but steel-cased and non-reloadable. Shooters looking for a brass-cased load should check out Fiocchi, PMC, or Prvi Partizan's offerings for sale which offer reloadable cases for precise loading at your convenience."

Don’t be thrown off by the foreign sounding name! Belom is headquartered in Serbia, and was founded to better supply their nation’s armed forces as well as contribute to the local economy. In just a few years Belom has become internationally recognized for making dependable small arms ammo!
This 7.62x39 cartridge makes a swell pal to any AK-47 or SKS rifle. Its 123 grain bullet is an FMJ, with a hard lead/antimony alloy core and copper/zinc alloy jacket. The 90 percent copper jacket is hard enough to feed reliably and prevent accuracy-harming deformation under extreme pressure. It is also devoid of steel and therefore compliant with indoor ranges that ban the use of magnetic ammo.
This round’s case is made of pure brass and outfitted with a non-corrosive Boxer primer. It fires even cleaner courtesy of Belom’s proprietary double base propellant blend, so you’ll be able to spend less time scrubbing your rifle than if you had chosen steel-cased ammo. Belom’s ammo is engineered to perform on the harsh battlefield, so it is both waterproof and reliable in extreme temperatures.
Reasonable Price for Quality Ammo
Quality ammo, bright and clean cases. Timely delivery. Would definitely buy again.
