So some of you may now, Ive been looking for an AK. Probably going to be picking it up this week. But I came across this video, and found it really interesting. While I was researching the AK when looking to buy, a lot of people say the 7.62x39 is similar to the 30-30. But wow.. But using a "traditiona hunting cartiidge" wow quite a difference. He also compares it to different American hunting rounds.

Don't do it.
You'll most likely scare CA peace loving gun hating natives and make Jim Zumbo's wondering the hills nervous. They might even suspect of you being a terrorizer.
If you get powerful fruit vaporizing 30-30 might also get a Combat shotgun (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0803/sergey25/Guns2/stoeger-double-defense-12-ga.jpg) to go along with.

Hahaha, Yeah that's what I was thinking since last night.I'm seriousley considering a Marlin .30-30 or the 44mag just so I
I have an excuse to eventually get a .44 revolver lol. I don't like though after researching how .30-30 the ammo is more expensive. But does give quite a bigger punch ESP with the caliber choices. The way ak's are percieved is def not a good thing. Though to us gun enthusiasts there may not be one. But to a jury of 12 and a prosecuting lawyer, a cowboy lever action and a Ak-47 are quite different.

Lol should there be a AK vs Lever Action thread?

Videos like this are stupid, they prove nothing. If anyone were to shoot both rounds they would know that the 30-30 packs more of a punch than the 7.62x39.

I've only shot 7.62 so I don't know two much about the difference. So I looked it up online with the good ole google search of 7.62 vs .30-30. Check it out most people say they are the same. I don't bilieve it though after researchng like for an hour last night.

Number wise they're close, with the 30-30 being a little more powerful (per numbers). To me, I always felt the 30-30 was more accurate and more powerful when shooting it. Perhaps it's just the difference between a SKS/AK rifle and a good old Lever Action.

Barrel length and ammo type and loading makes a difference as well. 16" AK barrel with crappy surplus FMJ ammo with a lighter bullet is not going to do as much damage as a soft point, high quality production ammo with a heavier bullet out of an 18"-20" barrel either.

I'm just curious what a bullet of the same type and weight, same production standards and fired out of equal sized barrels would do.

If they all had the same type of ammo that would be decent test, but with FMJ the AK round just went through, the other rifles were probably firing hunting ammo that expanded and produced much better terminal effects. This is why I keep hunting ammo loaded for my defensive rifles.

I didn't click the video.

I see no reason to watch Milk jugs, Watermelons, Grapefruits, paper targets, car doors, TVs, bricks and metal plates shot with guns...they prove little and basically just show how well a person can aim.
