AK 47 uses 7.62x39 and AK 74 uses 5.45x39 ammo otherwise only slight differences

I got my Saiga for 700 and have been very happy with it. It's straight from the Russians

As been said before the AK47 chambers the 7.62x39mm round & the AK74 chambers the 5.45x39mm round.
But what wasn't mentioned the recoil of a AK74 is much less than the AK47 that make it easer to shoot and more accurate.
The 7.62x39 round can be found for around .20 to .23 cents per round but the 5.45x39 can be purcased for as little as .14 cents per round so the AK74 is cheaper to shoot.
