Civilian sales are obviously focused on the latter two offerings since 12.7×108 isn’t as popular or common (although it would be cool to see it offered here in the U.S.).

Belom 7.62×39

Designed for the AK-47 platform, Belom 7.62×39 has been wildly popular amongst our customers. This 7.62×39 target ammunition is a Belom 7.62x39 in loaded Magazine 123 grain FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) load, with a sealed primer that is non-corrosive. Belom 762×39 is brass cased and the full metal jacket projectile does not lead which means you can shoot this project indoors as well as outdoors.

Unlike full metal jacket projectiles, bi-meal jacketed 7.62×39 is not safe to shoot indoors as it can cause sparks and potentially catch an indoor range on fire. Bi-metal jacketed ammunition is also not safe to shoot at steel targets as it can cause pitting to the steel target. Pitting of targets can be dangerous as the splatter from lead projectiles can become erratic and less predictable, as steel targets are designed to deflect splatter into the ground.

These rounds come packed in a nice plastic container of 20 rounds per pack. The author has personally shot this ammunition in his AK and found it to be clean and consistent, with no issues related to function like stuck cases, failure to fire or dislodged primers. Every round went off without issue. Belom also states this ammo has a 15-year guaranteed shelf life as well.
