Sellier & Bellot - Full Metal Jacket - 123 Grain 7.62X39 Ammo - 20 Rounds
Both world wars encouraged the armies of many nations to accept that full sized military cartridges were more than necessary as engagement ranges became well within a thousand, or even a couple hundred yards. Yet reliance on a pistol caliber in carbines or submachineguns was less than ideal too, hence the adoption of intermediate rounds. The Soviet Union’s answer was the 7.62x39 rifle cartridge: scaled down from the full 54mm rifle round, yet with more power than their favored 25mm smg/round. Developed at the end of World War II, it is the most prolific of military rounds by the ubiquitous use of the SKS and AK variant rifles all over the world. The 123 grain full metal jacket round by Sellier & Bellot has a muzzle velocity of 2421 feet per second with a stated 1601 foot pounds of energy behind it. It is a premium range and target shooting round for a reliable and rugged shooting platform.
The Bohemian munitions company known as Sellier & Bellot has been making ammunition long enough to have been founded in the hey day of the Austrian Empire and used right on through to the modern Czech state. Renown for consistent performance and reloadable materials, S&B promises to deliver exceptional results out of your Warsaw Pact designed surplus or the increasing number of quality target rifles in this caliber.
