Careful, if you don't figure in your shipping cost, you could be tricking yourself.

Palmetto State Armory is waiving shipping charges right now, if you can find what you want. Shipping from the East Coast (Wideners) makes it a poor choice out here.

Wideners has KSAP (Russian) 7.62 x 39 for $205 per 1K plus shipping; to Sacto its $45, Ammoman looks to have the best deal so far.

the ak extractor is pretty harsh on the casing and the 7.62x39 isnt worth reloading

yes, the Yugo from wineders (second post) is brass, you can shoot it at Burro... you will hear/read lot's of people spooked about "corrosive" - it's all I shoot and have zero problems.

That's not universally true. The extractor shouldn't chew up the case if it is within spec, not chipped and the spring allows it to snap and hold firmly (if it flops around easily, the spring needs to be replaced). Adding a port buffer to the receiver, or a rubber padded brass deflector will protect the cases so that they can be reloaded. Reloading berdan primed cases is possible, but will cost about as much, if not slightly more than Russian import. Reloading ammo to achieve greater consistency, or use better projectiles, or tune the loads for a special use or the rifle is best done with quality brass, which is boxer primed.

The objectives you have will determine if it makes sense to reload or not. Everyone should have some once shot brass around for some long weekend or rainy day when you feel inclined to setup a reloading bench, buy some load books and have at it.

ammo brothers has the yugo surplus on their bi-weekly ad but the price is a little higher
the price might be a little closer when you factor out shipping

As mentioned, the Yugos are brass cased and lead core so it's burro canyon friendly as well as pretty much any other range.

ammo bros ends up being higher, $358.88 (28.5 cents per rd) to Wideners $315.53 (.25 per round)

prices based on tax (for AM) and shipping (for Wideners)

I like Ammo Bros, but online is always going to be cheaper.

Sg ammo is the cheapest for russian ammo shipped period. 7.62x39. 7.62x54. 223.

They have 1000 223 tula for 199 and about 16 shipping

he's asking about 7.62x39 though... SGAmmo is $22 shipping and puts their best price at 231 (for TulAmmo)... Ammoman is the cheapest at 229 shipped (for Wolf) \

that is, if you like shooting that stuff - I prefer Yugo brass.

yeah that is true
local just gives you instant gratification and not needing to wait

the image I linked earlier goes to a site that has a larger list of ammo deals, some probably come out cheaper than what is listed as "cheapest" when shipping is considered.

Are you sure about that? The typical regulation applies only to the projectile, not the case. If the bullet is non-magnetic, the case it is crimped to shouldn't matter. For example, Hornady sells Vmax and SST loads in 5.45x39 mm and 7.62x39 mm that meet the requirements for pretty much any rifle range, but the cases are Russian steel cases sourced from Baurnal.

Have an RSO confirm if steel jacketed and/or steel core projectiles (risk of fire and damage to backstops and steel targets) are the focus of the range rules, or if this includes the cartridge case as well. While most steel cased FMJ is also steel jacketed and even steel cored, it is not universally so.

Wolf has non-magnetic (copper jacketed not bimetal) and non-corrosive 7.62x39, but I haven't seen those around for a while. It's still listed on their website though.

What little golden tiger I have, the magnet sticks to the projectile. Unless there is non magnetic golden tiger out there, it's a deadend

$224 shipped for WPA Wolf at Palmetto State Armory. I think thats the best for a thousand you're going to find. Also check SGammo.com

Parallax sells Tula for $5, which even with tax is going to be less than shipping on 1000 rounds.

Chead, that would be $270.xx for 1k of that. You could save $50 per 1k going with free shipping and 4.49 per box wolf from palmetto.

Hey Reddawn saw these today. Price looks good too. What do you guys think? What's the difference besides the polymer coating? Can anyone confirm that it's non magnetic? I don't want to get stuck with 1k rounds if I can't shoot them at my range.

Same stuff, one is polymer coated for easier feeding so they say. Both attracts a magnet. Good deal though.

And this is the stuff that is currently loading the 8M3 bullet from the Ulyanovsk plant that GKR reccommends as a legitimate defense round...supposed to fragment pretty violently.

Does the box say "effect bullet" - has anyone got a picture of the hollow point so confirm? There are telltales on the 8M3 bullet that differ from regular non-expanding/non-fragmenting garden variety 7.62x39 mm HP.

Assuming this is for an AK, I find that not to be true if the gun's working right. We've got a rental AK at work that doesn't rip the brass to shreds. Also, if you're running a bolt-action 7.62x39 like the CZ 527 that Hickok45 reviewed, you can wring some good precision out of the rifle.

Here he is with 7.62x39 hitting the gong at 230 yards.

I just ordered a few hundred of the Ukrainian wolf from PSA. It does indeed suck that it is most likely corrosive but I guess I will just keep it and use the proper cleaning protocol for corrosive... Just got my Romanian AK 47 so I guess I need the practice anyways! Are there any other issues with this stuff I wonder?
