Tula Cartridge Works Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 122 Grain 7.62X39 Ammo - 100 Rounds
The Soviet Union was not the first to recognize the validity of a medium rifle caliber, but it was certainly the most prolific. Designed in 1943 at the height of World War II, the 7.62x39 rifle cartridge bridged the gap between rifle potency and sub machine gun controllability. Today it is known on virtually every continent as a military caliber but has also become increasingly interesting to the sport shooting world. As designed for military applications, the Russians favor reliability above all other considerations, and the military round delivers.
This AK-47 ammo features a 122 grain full metal jacket bullet from Tula Arsenal Works that moves at a muzzle velocity of 2396 feet per second with approximately 1550+ foot pounds of energy. This is the standard military round used literally all over the world.
The Tula Arms plant was originally established by Tzar Peter the Great in 1712, but its modern incarnation is the result of the Soviet Union, and especially its collapse, and the near global use of soviet era hardware. The ammunition produced for commercial export is the same ammunition made for military contracts with Russian forces and other nations. Steel cased and berdan primed means no reloading, but also established standards of dependable performance.
