Which US companies make 7.62x39?

I heard the WWB stuff is actually produced in Europe?

What about Federal, Hornady, and Remington?

Any others?

Thanks

Thanks for the info.

What I'm trying to learn is if this caliber is produced from all US components.

Evidently the Hornady isn't.

I have a single box of WWB 123gr FMJ for a rainy day. Its only 20 rounds but I would trust Winchester to save my life before any Wolf/ComBloc trash any day of the week.

Some shooting buds and I were discussing if The Anti's somehow ban importation of Ex Com-Bloc 7.62x39 or components would there be a domestic source?

Com bloc "trash" always works in my AK and both SKSs. What do you think those former com bloc armies used, and still use?

Remington (Have seen both target grade and hunting grade), Winchester White Box, Federal American Eagle, and a couple of weeks ago I saw a shelf full of Fiocchi at a local store.

What I wonder is if the components for the U.S. manufactured Fiocci are shipped in from overseas and assembled here, or if the components are domestically produced as well. I seem to recall the Fiocci 7.62x39 boxes were all stamped "Made In U.S.A." but I am going by the store tomorrow to double-check.

I've got a case of Yugo "real deal" that I'm saving for a rainy day.
If standard military issue AK ammo has suddenly become "ComBloc trash", it's news to me.

wow I don't know what to say.... ok

question, what happens when you run out after 20 rounds



Personally I would trust golden tiger over any 7.62x39 ammo out there.

I went back and checked. The Fiocchi 7.62x39 was made in Hungary, but that doesn't mean they don't make any domestically. They had Fiocchi .308 right next to it was that WAS made in the U.S.

Thanks!
It's gentlemen like you that help prices drop and increases availability
FOR THE REST OF US.

Everybody: don't buy Combloc ammo....it's really really bad.....
