After going to the Wannemacher show today in Tulsa, and seeing no 7.62x39, I've decided to take up reloading it, at least for the time being.

I bought some 123 grain Winchester power points, but for targets and plinking, they are probably a bit overkill.

I remember someone on the forum had a link to a manufacturer that made bullets specifically for 7.62x39 and they were reasonably priced. Does anyone have this link? Thanks.

I just picked up 100 Berry bullets in 110gr .310 from Grafs to test. Here's the link:

http://www.grafs.com/metallic/929

There is another place that had 123gr FMJ for about $65/1000, but the link has died and I can't remember the name. It had 'brass' in the website name, but that's all I remember.

LOL....... They tell you that shipping is free but mark 2K up $10 over 1K price. Could be a typo, but on second thought i think there just attempting to rip you one.

I saw that too, but are you going to do? They still have the best price I've seen on 7.62x39 FMJ bullets.

I tried the 110gr Berrys yesterday. They went bang, but I think I'll stick with 123-150gr bullets. Point of impact was at least 12" different than the 150gr Hornady SP (.308) at 50 yards. Both are using AA1680 and Remington Small Rifle primers in a once fired Remington case.

The 303 bullets are .311 dia. and seems like one guy on this forum was using them too reload. Should be able to pick up at any sporting good store.
