  • 7.63x39 Ammo Question

    TYPO in Title 7.62 not 7.63 hehe

    Due to the increasing cost of ammo I am looking to purchase a few cases of 7.62x39 ammo.

    I have been doing a lot of research on ammo prices and the best deal going right now is from Centrury Arms. They are offering 700 round cases of Hotshot 7.62x39 Soft Point for $125.87 (free shipping on orders over $500.00, I would take advantage of this). FYI: The sale does not show on their site yet when you add to cart but the rep told to mention the sale in the comment box and I'll get it.

    I am wondering if the Hotshot ammo is any good? If it's not that great I'll probably go with 1000 round cases of Golden Tiger FMJ from ammoman for $195 shipped. Copes had some good deals on the GT but they are out of stock

    I have never heard how Hotshot ammo is so I'm wondering how it compares to GT, Wolf, Branauls etc. Also I kind of wanted FMJ but I guess the Soft Point wont be bad - would cause more tramua on un-armored personnel but wouldn't punch through the hard stuff as well as the FMJ.

    So,
    - Is Hotshot good stuff?
    - What would you rather in 7.62x39 - SP or FMJ or both?

    Never heard of it either, but I look at my AK like a garbage disposal. As long as the ammo goes "bang" and hits minute of man at 200 yards it does what I need.

        Both hot shot and golden tiger work great in my AKs. Those and wolf are pretty much the same when it comes to accuracy/reliability. Just get whatever is less expensive!

          Well I ordered 5 cases of the Hotshot... Glad to hear the hotshot worked great in your AK as I have heard that some AK's don't like soft point... I guess I'll find out when I hit the range w/it.

            Yup. If it doesn't work out I don't think you will have any problems selling it!

              AmmoMan.com just got an order from me. The best prices I could find. The advertised price is shipping included.

              Have to check out that site as ammo is increasingly expensive. And I like to shoot.
