7.62x39

  1. General Chit Chat
    Introduced in 1943, the 7.62x39mm cartridge was originally chambered in the RPD Light Machine Gun as well as the SKS Rifle. Soon after its development, the entry of the iconic AK-47 into the Soviet military ensured the 7.62x39 would have a place for many years to come. The cartridge has been...
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I'm shopping for reloading components, never hand loaded before, and I need a little advice. I'll be shooting out of a 16.5" barrel, 582+ series Mini 30, and I want the best possible groups, but I'm on a budget. Bullets, lead-free: I'm looking at the TSX. I don't see any other options as far...

    I subscribe to the the classicfirearms.com mailing list. February 8, 2017 I got an email from them. Inside the email there was a Kel-Tec rifle listed for $1,599.99. Surely this was a misprint? I clicked the link and sure enough, the Kel-Tec Rifle Forward Ejecting Bullpup, or RFB 7.62 NATO...

    Palmetto State Armory announced an AK-47 on their facebook page. PSAK-47 MOE Edition Magpul furniture is ugly on an AK-47. Why change perfection? The AK is fine like it is, why put all the fancy stuff on it? That is like putting modern stuff on a classic car. The PSA facebook page says...
  6. Reloading
    I am trying to find appropriate powder/load data that will be sufficient to load for a mini thirty. I have the new tactical 582 series with a .311 bore and am casting .311 160 grain lead boolits with a gas check. Anyone have recommended powders and/or load data that will cycle the action of the...

    At a local shooting range a guy who had a decked out 20lb AR proceded to tell me how inadequite my AK was to his anchor of a gun. He told me I couldnt hit the broad side of a barn and that it was gonna jam every shot. He told me his dad had one and it was the worst gun he ever owned. I didnt pay...

  9. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Obviously there are things you can do to improve a Mini's accuracy, like adding a strut, adding a stiffer top barrel brace/cover, new barrel, bedding, etc. 1. But can the AK 47/74 be made more accurate through these or other methods? 2. Is the standard Mini/Ranch as or more accurate than a...

    Is this normal??:unsure: My new M30 Tactical fails to extract almost EVERY round if I am using steel case ammo . . in this case China Sports, have not tried other steel case schtuff. Fails to extract and drives the next round into the casing still in the chamber . . The spent case is NOT stuck...

    How do you like your stainless Mini 30? I am particularly interested in hearing about the 581-xxxx series. How is the accuracy and reliability? Do they function with the Brown, Silver, Golden Bear ammo? Thanks.
  12. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Please compare and contrast the Golden Bear and Silver Bear 7.62x39 ammo. Would like to hear about reliability and accuracy. Is one preferable over the other in a Mini? For a frame of reference I hope to be shooting them in a Mini 30 Tactical. Thanks.
  13. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Newbie to mini land, just inherited a 184 series mini 14, but have no use for the caliber. I'm already into 7.62 x 39 from sks and ak. Sure there are posts about converting 14 to 30, but have not found. Question is am i better off to have caliber conversion done or just sell the 14 and get a 30...

    Currently I have a Ruger scout and a Savage scout, and now I find myself eyeing the Ruger compact in 7.62x39. I own an AMD-65 and have a lot of suruplus 7.62x39 ammo, but would probably reload for the Ruger. Does anyone here have one? If so how do you like it? If so, how are groups with...
  17. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    What steps do I need to take. (parts to buy) to turn my Tactical Mini in to a M1A SOCOM clone? Pictures would be great. I have been thinking about what to do with this rifle and I don't want to turn it into another AR. It had its own mystique. Thanks JRC
  18. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Hey all, new member here. I searched around for awhile, but didn't see any info on this. I just just bought a new Mini 30 tactical. I shot 100 rounds thru it the other day at the range and when I disassembled it to clean I noticed an odd wear mark on the bolt. A coworker bought the same gun...

    Nutn is cheap. he shoots 1000's of rounds and only shoots Wolf. Save money. He said if a gun does not shoot wolf, he will not review it. He loves the Mini 14... I guess it handles wolf real well... But people say the Mini 30 can not take wolf. So the firing pin of a MINI 14 can take the...
  20. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I put some Yugo brass cased berdan primed x39 ammo down range and had mixed results.... All the rounds went bang and had positive primer strikes. The primers were not dimpled as deep as the fiocchi or Winchester primers but I'm guessing they don't need to be due to the fact that they have a...
