Would 7.62 x 39mm work in an M44?

Try it, then let us know...

No. First, it is a RIMLESS cartridge for a semi auto. Your rifle needs a rim to grab to extract the fired round. And to keep the round from going in to the chamber too far. Second, it is too short- that second number is length of case in mm. You need 7.62X54, not 39. The 54 cartridge is also fatter near the base- the 39 case would not be supported, and split.

But if you want to try it...........and anything happens..........can I have your guns? :rolleyes:

What will slit?

The 39mm case will split, probably blow up. No sir, listen to the man he is a GENIUS! Otherwise enjoy your m44!

The round on the far left is 7.62x54r, made for your M44 bolt action carbine. The shorter round to it's right is a 7.62x39 round for the SKS or AK47.

I would never chamber a round not exactly called out by the weapons receiver... I would even be leary about throwing 5.56 in a .223 due to the slight shape and pressure difference... When I put that slab of steel against my cheek and pull that trigger I would like to be able to live long enough to assess my aim... My father had an old .303 blow up due to a bad round that never cleared the barrel being followed by a good round... A very valuable lesson for him and thankfully the harm was minimal... Several days turning into a couple weeks of hearing problems and the first couple days also included intense migraines and light sensitivity... Rather not shoot at all than shoot unsafely...

C3shoot you're smart when it comes to guns. But thank y'all I'm going to go change my ammo to the 7.62 x 54r. If i have any other questions I'm going to upload them on here
