Does it tumble and fragment?

It is corrosive but pretty much any AK ammo will work for SD. They pretty much all tumble.

Yugoslavian 7.62x39 ammunition, of M67 designation is one of the best 7.62x39 124 FMJ rounds for anti-personnel use.

It roughly duplicates the 5.45x39 'M74' 53 gr. FMJ (which was labeled the 'poison bullet' by the Muj'hadeen in Afghanistan) in terminal effectiveness, possesses an earlier yaw cycle (@ ~3.50") which maximizes tissue destruction and penetrates about 3" deeper (19.00" vs. 21.67") than the 5.45x39 M74 FMJ.

Several types of Western commercially produced copper jacketed, lead core 7.62x39 ammunition (Winchester, Remington, Federal, FiocchiUSA, PMC, etc) also produce terminal performance similar to that of Yugoslavian M67 round.

Hope this helps.

Not quite. Yes most all tumble but many do not tumble until very late in the bullets travel inside the target causing only minimal damage. The best thing going is Horndays new 124 grain TAP round.

Pat,

A quick check at Hornady's website and I didn't find it, do you have the data for this ammo?

Thanks,
Bob

Bob,

I do believe that he has it confused with their "V-MAX" round.:dunno:

Whoops.
Yep

Hornady uses their Vmax bullet in some of their TAP line.

Thanks guys.

I know Hornady makes sniper specific ammo for 5.56 and .308, don't think the typical AK has that kind of accuracy.

Do either of you know who Hornady's steel casing supplier is?

Last I heard is that it is an 'unspecified' Russian source. (most likely Wolf)

I could be wrong. even though I've never been known to be.

"Significantly increased tissue damage is produced by the early yaw seen with several 7.62 x 39 mm FMJ lead core bullets, including:

-- Yugoslavian M67 124 gr FMJ, flat based, copper-jacketed, lead core bullet which travels only 3.5" in tissue before yawing."

I think that what you are looking at will definitely work for your needs. Anyone that does not think so can stand on the business end if they are so sure. I doubt you will have any arguments.

I wouldn't shoot anything that was corrosive, my local shop has Lapua 7.62x39, brass cases, 30 round boxes for $6.69 right now, trying to stock put!!!

doesn't look reloadable though, has the 2 holes for the primer
