Default Data for Lee 7.62x39 cast bullets

Hey I've looked every where for some real data for loading the lee 7.62x39 cast bullets and can't find any. Do any of you guys out there have any tried and true data that I could use? Or know of a source that has that data? Thanks

Never loaded that particular cartridge personally but i found some data. One of the posts says he started with plated data, IMO, that would be a good place to start of you dont find anything specific.

warning you shouldnt use lead bullets in gas type firearms. It will clog up the gas port. read the warning on the link. this is the same reason I do not cast bullets for my AR15. as for using that particular bullet you can pretty much use data from almost any lead bullet that matches the description of the one you are trying to load for. weight, shape etc just make sure you start 10% less than max and you should be fine

Someone please tell me how lead bullets will foul/clog up a .135/.145" diameter gas port in an SKS and ill assume a AK also?

They are over gassed as they come from the factories, handload 150 grain bullets and watch empty's go 20-30 feet.
