Will a standard can opener open the tins of bulk 7.62X39 from Russia?

I don't think so, it's pretty thick metal. I have a spare if your in the San Diego area.

I think the lip around the top edge of the ammo tins are too high to use a food can type can opener. If the can doesn't come with a built in Spam type opening key then you need to use an old fashioned ammo can opener...

The easiest/fastest way to open them is with an angle grinder. But Calgunners will often help you out and loan/give you one of the above can openers if you are close to them. That's one of the main reasons you should include your general location in your user profile.

Hammer and a chisle or wide blade screwdriver and just work your way around.
