The 7.62x39mm Patrone, also called the 7.62 Soviet, .30 Short, and .30 Soviet, is a WWII era cartridge (1943) that was originally used in the SKS carbine and later the AK-47 assault rifle. The M43 bullet was replaced by the M64 bullet which contained a soft steel penetrator inside making it less stable when striking a target and better able to defeat soft body armor.

Appeal to Survivalists

Like many other popular calibers the 7.62x39mm is popular primarily due to its associated rifles the SKS, AK-47 and VZ-58, all of which are now obsolete but still readily available on the civilian market in semi-auto only versions. It is extremely popular among survivalists and gun enthusiasts alike.

Ballistic Characteristics

The 7.62x39mm is available commercially in many bullet loadings such as 122 grain FMJ (M43), 122 grain HP and 147 grain SP. Ballistically it is the equivalent of the .30-30 Winchester round which is a very popular hunting cartridge. Unfortunately, the M64 round is currently banned from import in the US as it is considered an Armor Piercing pistol bullet.

Snippet from Wikipedia: 7.62×39mm

The 7.62×39mm (aka 7.62 Soviet or formerly .30 Russian Short) round is a rimless bottlenecked intermediate cartridge of Soviet origin that was designed during World War II. Due to the worldwide proliferation of the Soviet SKS and AK-47 pattern rifles, as well as RPD and RPK light machine guns, the cartridge is used by both militaries and civilians alike.

Shortly after World War II, the AK-47 was designed, later becoming the world's most widespread military-pattern rifle. The cartridge remained the Soviet standard until the 1970s. It was largely replaced in Soviet service by the 5.45×39mm cartridge, which was introduced with the new AK-74 rifle, and continues in service with the modernized current-issue Russian Armed Forces AK-74M service rifle, as well as the AK-12 rifle. In the 21st century the 7.62×39mm remains a common service rifle chambering, including for newly developed rifles like the AK-15.

The 7.62×39mm round is a rifle cartridge of Soviet origin that was designed during World War II. It was first used in the RPD machine gun. Due to the worldwide proliferation of the SKS and AK-47 pattern rifles, the cartridge is utilized by both militaries and civilians alike. 7.62×39mm ammunition is purportedly tested to function well in temperatures ranging from

to

cementing its usefulness in extremely cold polar or hot desert conditions.

The 7.62×39mm cartridge was influenced by a variety of foreign developments, including the German Mkb 42(H) and the US M1 carbine.<ref name=“Monetchikov”/>

Shortly after the war, the world's most recognized military pattern rifle was designed for this cartridge: the AK-47. The cartridge remained the Soviet standard until the 1970s, and is still one of the most common intermediate rifle cartridges used around the world. It was replaced in Russian service by the 5.45×39mm cartridge, which is used by the current issue AK-74 and variants.

History

view of a steel-cased 7.62×39mm FMJ cartridge.]]

On July 15, 1943, the Technical Council of the People's Commissariat for Armaments (Техсовета Наркомата Вооружения) met to discuss the introduction of a Soviet intermediate cartridge. The Soviet planners also decided at this meeting that their new cartridge be used in a whole range of infantry weapons, including a semi-automatic carbine, a selective fire (assault) rifle, and a light machine gun. The job of designing the Soviet intermediate cartridge was assigned to a committee led by chief designer NM Elizarov (Н.М. Елизаров), assisted by PV Ryazanov (П.В. Рязанов), BV Semin (Б.В. Семин) and IT Melnikov (И.Т. Мельников). Elizarov collaborated closely with some leading weapons designers, including Fedorov, Tokarev, Simonov, and Shpagin. About 314 cartridge designs were considered theoretically, before narrowing the selection down to 8 models that were physically constructed and tested.<ref name=“Monetchikov”>

</ref> Most of the development work on the new cartridge took place at OKB-44, which was soon thereafter renamed as NII-44, and which in 1949 was merged with NII-61, itself merged with TsNIITochmash in 1966.<ref name=“Oruzhie”/>

A first variant of the new cartridge was officially adopted for service after completing range trials in December 1943; it was given the GAU index 57-N-231. This cartridge actually had a case length of 41&nbsp;mm, so it is sometimes referred to as the 7.62×41. The bullet it contained was 22.8&nbsp;mm long and had a core made entirely of lead. This bullet has a somewhat stubbier appearance than later 7.62×39 bullets, with its maximal radius being attained after only 13.01&nbsp;mm from its tip, and it was lacking a boat tail. After some further refinements, a pilot production series of this cartridge began in March 1944.<ref name=“Oruzhie”>“Патрон - основа оружия. Глава третья. Из истории автоматного 7,62-мм патрона образца 1943 г. (7,62х39)”, Оружие 2005/9, pp. 21-44</ref>

After more detailed testing results became available, starting in 1944 the cartridge was tweaked in order to improve its accuracy and penetration. Initially, the boat tail had been omitted because the Soviet designers had assumed (incorrectly) that it would only make a difference at long ranges, when the bullet became subsonic, and the accuracy of the intermediate cartridge at these ranges was considered inconsequential. However, further testing showed that the boat tail improved accuracy even at shorter ranges, where the bullet was still supersonic. In order to maintain the overall mass of the bullet, after adding the boat tail, the ogival head section of the bullet was lengthened as well, making the bullet more streamlined overall. The maximum radius was now attained at some 15.95&nbsp;mm from the tip and the overall length of the bullet increased to 26.8&nbsp;mm. In order to preserve the total length of the cartridge, the case sleeve was shortened to 38.7&nbsp;mm (and by rounding it is customarily referred to as 7.62×39.) Additionally, the new bullet had a core made of low-carbon steel wrapped in lead. The use of low-carbon (mild) steel was guided mostly by the desire to reuse some industrial equipment that was manufacturing the 7.62×25mm Tokarev cartridge rather than by bullet fragmentation considerations. This bullet was given the acronym “7.62 PS” (76.2 ПС), where “S” initially stood for “surrogate” (суррогатированная), but later the letter was taken to refer to the steel component of the core, which accounted for about 50% of the core volume. The 7.62×39 cartridge equipped with the PS bullet finally overcame all objections of the GAU in mid-1947, when it was ordered into series production, and given the index 57-N-231S.<ref name=“Oruzhie”/>

The design that was ultimately selected by the Soviets has more dimensional similarities to the GECO cartridge used in the Vollmer M35 than with the Polte round used by the later German Sturmgewehr. Some authors, including C. J. Chivers, have speculated that the Soviets may have had access to the works of GECO and Vollmer during 1940, when Hitler allowed a large number of Soviet engineers to tour various German armament factories.<ref name=“Chivers2010”>

</ref> Anthony Williams however argues that the Soviet M43 round was sufficiently different to dismiss the idea that it was a copy of any German round in existence at the time.<ref>

</ref>

The 57-N-231S cartridge used a “bimetallic” (steel and copper) case. In the early 1960s, a “lacquered” steel case was introduced, and the new cartridge was initially given the designation 57-N-231SL. In an effort to simplify terminology, sometime thereafter the 57-N-231 designation was recycled to denote all steel-core 7.62×39 Soviet ammunition, irrespective of case build.<ref name=“Oruzhie”/>

In the mid 1950s, Elizarov's team, now working at NII-61, developed a special subsonic bullet for the 7.62×39 cartridge. It was adopted for service in 1962, and given the army designation “7.62 US” (US stood for уменьшенной скоростью, meaning reduced speed) and the GRAU index 57-N-231U. The subsonic bullet was considerably longer (33.62&nbsp;mm) and heavier (12.5&nbsp;g) than the PS bullet, and also had a different, non-layered core structure. The core of its head section was entirely made of tool steel, followed by another section entirely made of lead. The subsonic bullet also has a larger maximum diameter of 7.94&nbsp;mm compared to all other 7.62×29 bullets that peak at 7.92&nbsp;mm diameter; the larger diameter of the lead-core section was intended to provide a tighter fit to the barrel by better engaging the rifling grooves. The 7.62 subsonic ammo was intended to be fired from AK47-type rifles equipped with the PBS-1 silencer, and developed a muzzle velocity of about 285–300&nbsp;m/s. For recognition, this ammo typically has the bullet tips painted black with green band underneath.<ref name=“Oruzhie”/>

After 1989, the regular (PS) Russian bullets started to be manufactured with a steel core with a higher carbon concentration and subjected to heat treatment. This change improved their penetration by 1.5-2 times. It is not possible to externally distinguish these bullets from the earlier, softer PS ones except by year of fabrication. At about the same time, tool steel was adopted for a normal velocity 7.62×39 bullet. Called BP, this bullet was developed in the 1980s and 1990s. It was officially adopted for Russian service in 2002 under the service name “7.62 BP”, and with the GRAU designation 7N23. The BP bullet is claimed to achieve over three times the penetration of the PS bullet; it can defeat the Russian bullet-proof vest with designation 6B5 at distances below 250 meters. The BP cartridge has the tip of its bullet painted black. The BP bullet itself is slightly longer (27.4&nbsp;mm) compared to the PS bullet, but has the same mass of 7.9 grams.<ref name=“Oruzhie”/>

At the same 1943 meeting that decided the development new cartridge, the Soviet planners decided that a whole range of new small arms should use it, including a semi-automatic carbine, a fully automatic rifle, and a light machine gun. Design contests for these new weapons began in earnest in 1944.<ref name=“Monetchikov”/>

Variants

M43

The original Soviet M43 bullets are 123 grain boat-tail bullets with a copper-plated steel jacket, a large steel core, and some lead between the core and the jacket. The cartridge itself consisted of a Berdan-primed, highly tapered (usually steel) case which seats the bullet and contains the powder charge. The taper makes it very easy to feed and extract the round, since there is little contact with the chamber walls until the round is fully seated. This taper is what causes the AK-47 to have distinctively curved magazines (helping to distinguish AK-47s from AK-74s, which feed from a much straighter magazine). While the bullet design has gone through a few redesigns, the cartridge itself remains largely unchanged.

, 7.62×39mm and 7.62×25mm Tokarev.]]

According to Martin Fackler, although the new cartridge represented a great leap forward from previous designs, compared to later designs like 5.56&nbsp;mm and 5.45&nbsp;mm bullets, it has little wounding capacity. The complete solidity of the M43 projectile causes its only drawback—it is very stable, even while traversing tissue. It begins to yaw only after traversing nearly

of tissue.<ref name=“uthr.org”>Military rifle bullet wound patterns - by Martin L. Fackler. From: http://www.uthr.org/SpecialReports/Military_rifle_bullet_wound_patterns.htm. Retrieved on November 9, 2011</ref> This greatly reduces the wounding effectiveness of the projectile against humans. These wounds were comparable to that of a small handgun round using non-expanding bullets. Unless the round struck something vital, the wound was usually non-fatal, small and quick to heal.

M67

In the 1960s Yugoslavia experimented with new bullet designs to produce a round with a superior wounding profile, speed, and accuracy to the M43. The M67 projectile is shorter and flatter-based than the M43. This is mainly due to the deletion of the mild steel insert. This has the side effect of shifting the center of gravity rearward in comparison to the M43. This allows the projectile to destabilize nearly

earlier in tissue.<ref name=“uthr.org”/> This causes a pair of large stretch cavities at a depth likely to cause effective wound trauma. When the temporary stretch cavity intersects with the skin at the exit area, a larger exit wound will result, which takes longer to heal. Additionally, when the stretch cavity intersects a stiff organ like the liver, it will cause damage to that organ. However, the wounding potential of M67 is mostly limited to the small permanent wound channel the bullet itself makes, especially when the bullet yaws (tumbles).<ref name=“uthr.org”/>

Commercial ammunition

Commercial Russian-made 7.62×39mm ammunition, such as those sold under the Wolf Ammunition brand name, are also available in Full Metal Jacket (FMJ), Soft Points (SP) and Hollow Points (HP).<ref name=“wolfammo.com”>http://www.wolfammo.com/pdf/WOLF_Ammo_2008_Catalog.pdf |Wolf Ammunition 2010 catalog</ref> The Soft Points (SP) and Hollow Points (HP) offer improved accuracy and expansion.<ref name=“wolfammo.com”/>

Chinese steel core

Chinese military-issue ammunition in this caliber is M43 style with a mild steel core and a thin jacket of copper or brass. Chinese ammunition (as well as all other M43 ammunition) is currently banned from importation in the U.S. because U.S. federal law classifies the round as an armor-piercing handgun round. This classification is based on materials and bullet design rather than on empirical ability to penetrate armor.<ref name=USC>

Basic specifications of 21st century Russian service loads

The 7.62x39mm rounds in use with the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are designed for AKM assault rifles and AK platform derived light machine guns. As per 2003 there were several variants of 7.62x39mm produced for various purposes. All use clad metal as case material.

Hunting and sport use

Since approximately 1990, the 7.62×39mm cartridge has seen some use in hunting arms in the U.S. for hunting game up to the size of whitetail deer, as it is approximately as powerful as the .30-30 Winchester round, and has a similar ballistic profile.<ref name=“gundigest90”>

</ref> Large numbers of imported semiautomatic rifles, such as the SKS and AK-47 clones and variants, are available in this caliber.

In addition, several AR15 manufacturers, such as Colt, Olympic Arms, Del-Ton Inc and ModelOne Sales, are producing 16“ carbines and 20” to 24“ rifle length firearms that can often get very good accuracy to about 1” groups at 100 yards.

Ruger produces the Mini-30 as a 7.62×39mm version of their popular Mini-14 rifle. They also once had their bolt action M77 Mark II available in this caliber.

For a time Remington Arms advertised the Compact Model 799 Mini Mauser bolt action rifle chambered in 7.62×39mm in 2006, describing the Mauser action as “sought after by today’s hunters and shooters.”<ref>"Compact Model 799™ Mini Mauser"</ref> The Mauser action is a copy of the Gewehr 98 model rifle's action.

CZ-USA Sells the CZ 527 Carbine, a “micro length Mauser style” bolt action rifle chambered in 7.62×39mm and .223 Remington.<ref>"CZ 527 Carbine"</ref>

Savage Arms has introduced (around 2010–2011) their own bolt action rifle in 7.62×39mm caliber - Model: 10 FCM Scout.<ref>"Savage 10 FCM Scout"</ref>

Both the Sig 516 Russian and the Sig 556r are chambered in 7.62x39mm.

The lower cost and high availability of military surplus ammunition makes this cartridge attractive for many civilian shooters.

There's a lot to be said for the 7.62×39 round used in the AK-47 and Saigas. It can reach out there and touch someone a little harder than the .223/5.56mm rounds can. However, the .223/5.56mm rounds do more damage - at least when used within the limitations of the distance involved. The .223/5.56mm rounds do more tissue and organ damage than the 7.62×39 rounds, when up and close and personal distances are involved. So, we have longer range possibilities with an AK because of the round - it's heavier and a bigger caliber and had greater retained energy, at range. However, with the AR, and the 5.56mm round, does more damage and the ARs are more accurate. You can also carry more 5.56 ammo than you can 7.62×39 ammo - if that's a concern.

JWR] Adds: The AK-74 is chambered in 5.45x39, which has similar weight and size characteristics to 5.56mm NATO. AK magazines are also more rugged than the standard alloy AR magazines.

In any case, it's hard to beat an AK-47, no matter who makes it, it'll save your bacon, when the chips are down.

JWR Adds: Let's face it: Most folks do not have the cash for a “Cadillac” solution like a Valmet M62 or one of the new SIG 556R rifles. (The latter outwardly looks like a SIG 556 but it is chambered in 7.62 x39 and uses standard AK magazines.) Rather, I recommend a “Chevy” solution, like the Bulgarian AK or the Russian Saiga AK. They are relatively inexpensive, but very reliable. The “Chinese Bicycle” solution is to find a used SKS carbine. These use a 10-round fixed magazine, but these can legally be replaced with a 30 round semi-detachable magazine in most jurisdictions.
