Arsenal by Global Ordnance 7.62×39 Ammo 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 7.62×39 would have a place for many years to come. The cartridge has been employed in militaries around the globe, and is used by many police officers and civilians.
The round is also known as the 7.62 Soviet and sometimes as the .30 Russian Short, though the latter of these is somewhat archaic. Thanks to its use in the AK-47, a semi-automatic rifle virtually everyone in the world has heard of, 7.62×30 ammo is used across the globe.
Because it was a round preferred by the Soviet Union in combat, it needed to be able to be fired in extremely warm and extremely cold climates in every region. Thus, a rifleman can use the 7.62x39mm in anything from the poles to the equator.Global Ordnance 7.62×39 Ammo for sale
