    Getting ready to order a case of 7.62x39 for my two Romanian girlfriends -

    What bullet weight should I bee looking at ? I assume a FMJ in a 120 something grain weight?


    ..............and please, no responses on supplies of Russian surplus ammo drying up now. I know with all the internet BS going on it's going to be hard enough as is the find anything again for a while. :(

    Thanks -

    The most common weight for the x39 FMJ is 122 - 124 grs depending upon manufacturer and country of origin. Probably the best bet for reliable general use and just busting paper and cans at the range.
