With the AK-47 being one of the most popular assault rifles in the world, the 7.62x39 round isn’t going anywhere. However, that’s not the only gun to use this caliber. In fact, there are even conversion kits that will allow an AR-15 to shoot the 7.62x39. Why would someone want to switch from the 223/5.56 commonly shot from an AR-15? Two reasons; stopping power and price/availability.

The 7.62x39 was birthed during World War 2 by the Soviet Union in response to a need they had for a cartridge that would work in vast array of infantry weapons. The key factors that were sought after in their cartridge were penetration and accuracy, especially at sub-sonic speeds, as well as its usefulness in the frigid cold Russian Winters and Hot dessert climates. When the search for this cartridge began in 1943, more than 300 cartridge designs were considered before 8 finalists were rigorously tested; the end result was the 7.62x41. After more testing, as well as changes in the casing itself, the 7.62x39 was created. One aspect of the cartridge that was cause for tweaking was the boat tail on the rear of the cartridge. Originally, this factor was omitted because it was thought to have little effect on the round’s accuracy at close range.

However, after testing, the boat tail was added after it proved to increase accuracy, even at short range and when the bullet goes super-sonic. With the round being so readily available, this cartridge is sure to remain a favorite among many hunters, as well as military agencies across the world. 7.62x39, is the round used by the legendary AK-47. It’s a popular caliber today thanks to the abundance of cheap ammo and the many different firearms that use the round; from the SKS carbine, to AR-15 conversions, to the Ruger Mini-30 rifle, 7.62x39 finds a home in many forms of firearm. One of the main reasons to reload 7.62x39 is to create a round for hunting, or loading sub-sonic ammo for suppressed shooting.

Each box contains 100+ once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. It has not been cleaned or resized and still contains the spent primer. This brass contains different manufacturer's headstamps. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired. Approximately 20% of the cases will be berdan primed. We ship 20% extra cases in this product to account for berdan primed cases.

5 of 5 Fantastic Product and Company October 27, 2021
Reviewer: JC from USA  
I ordered 500 7.62x39 cartridges. They were shipped out almost immediately and received quickly. Everything was packaged professionally and received in excellent condition. I processed all 500 cartridges and had 2 6.8mm and less than 10 non-Boxer primed brass. I highly recommend the product and the company. I will definitely be ordering again soon!

5 of 5 Bought after import sanctions. Let's go Brandon! October 27, 2021
Reviewer: Mike from GA United States  
I sorted all my brass out into two piles Berdan and Boxer. I found out that the percentages of Berdan were higher than the other review something like 30%. I sent an email over to the customer service team and asked that they send me a few more Boxer's to help even out the number a bit. They had some more brass in the mail for me at no extra charge. I was a first time customer, now I am a lifetime customer. Thanks again guys! You could've said there was nothing you could done for me but you earned my business from here on out when I need any brass!

Very pleased with this brass from Capital Cartridge. Ordered 400pcs, received about 10days after ordering. After sorting it came out to 453 good boxer primed cases, 16 Berdain primed, 1 too damaged to use and 5 6.5 Grendel Bonus! Will definitely be ordering again.
