STHF... Aliens, Zombies, ... zombie-aliens... Could go either AK/AR. But if it were
invading forces, they would most likely have body armor. In that case, i think I would
need to go AR + Steel core. Too bad I can't buy any in Commy-fornia. I guess I'll be
head shots just like the zombies.

Aliens?

No, I think we all know what we're really getting prepared for...





I would say go with an AK-47, but are those third party brand AK's as reliable as a real Russian made AK-47?

According to Muzzle Energy Computer
The 223x45 has a muzzle energy of 939 ft lbs @ 100 yards
The 7.62x39 has a muzzle energy of 1180 ft lbs @ 100 yards
21% more energy than AR-15 say WA!?

Is it just the drop-off at distance that makes the AR have a longer effective range?

pretty much. but its only a 7% difference at 100yds not 21%

the ak is really pushing the accuracy barrier at 100yds and is barely prducing more energy than the 556, at 150yds the energy starts to drop very rapidly, at 200yds its starting to measure its hitting power in ounces and bullet drop in feet. its very similar to the 300blackout. the 556 retains far far more energy at much longer ranges. the usable range of the 556 is way better than the 762x39.

the difference tween 556 and 762x39 is the 762 can hit the target the 556 can pick the spot on the target to hit...

the rapid bullet drop and extremely rapid energy bleed is one of the really big reasons we dont use a similar round. the 556 is far more cost effective and way more useful than the 762x39

Jon M,
The 7.62x39 is generally cheaper when I look up ammo pricing per round.

Personally I would rather have the lighter further flying, more accurate round
than the latter. Especially since I want to engage the Zombie-Aliens or invading
forces from as far a distance as possible.

I would also like a lot of hand grenades, is that possible? At the very least
flash bangs.

Actually the cost of steel case .223 and 7.62x39 is about the same - often about 20 cents a round.

Quentin, how'd you get that nifty AR-15 builder tag?

I've been seeing those, too. I am betting that they are by invitation only.
