Introduced in 1943, the 7.62x39mm cartridge was originally chambered in the RPD Light Machine Gun as well as the SKS Rifle. Soon after its development, the entry of the iconic AK-47 into the Soviet military ensured the 7.62x39 would have a place for many years to come. The steel 7.62X39 is the best choice to when it comes to feeding your AK or SKS. It is used for sporting, hunting, and defensive use throughout the world in both bolt-action and semi-auto carbines. The cartridge keeps its qualities under various climatic and weather conditions independent of the season and at the temperature range from -50° to +50 °. The cartridge case is bottle-shaped with non-projecting flange. The cartridge complies with CIP requirements.
