Default 7.62x39 compared other cartridges.

This is an older, but very interesting video on the power of an AK-47.

Even back then the nra totally missed the point. Truth has no bearing on perception and lies when no one in the media is reporting truth. Neal knox was one of the most ineffective and ignorant nra chairmen. He didn't understand you can not argue rationally with totalatarians and communists who only want to disarm the people.

does anyone offer a bolt action rifle in 7.62x39?

just out of curiousity if better bullets and different powders could offer some advantages over the factory ammo if using a bolt action rifle?

i know you can get a CZ 527 in that caliber & just found out Remington made a 799 in this caliber too. Didn't know that Ruger made one in that, now if I could get a Savage Axis in 7.62x39 I'd jump on it.

edit: Mossberg also makes one with a detachable 10 round magazine

Check with the LGS. They frequently have new guns on the shelf for a year or more.
