After I get my first AK-47 for Christmas I am going to load up on ammo and I a goin to order a 1000 rounds of Wolf 7.62x39mm ammo. And was wondering what has higher penetration? Full Metal Jacket or Soft Point? There was also Hollow Point but I know that doesn't have as much penetration as the other two because it mushrooms. Anyway which has a higher tendency to penetrate the target? FMJ or Soft Point. Just curious.

A hit is a hit. 7.62x39 ammo is not sissy .223! It hits hard... It doesnt matter if its soft point, HP or FMJ. I know that If I hit soft tissue with my AK-47 it will knock it down!
Buy whatever is the cheapest, plus... You will use it for plinking right?

By all reports FMJ and HP act the same. All the HP ammo I have is steel jacketed and I don't expect it will expand. Some posters report expansion (and presumably less penetration) from SP ammo. If you want the best penetration get the Chinese steel core ammo.
ETA Merry Christmas and welcome to the Darkside.

Anything you use should be able to break a sheet of paper.

Jeez, who pissed in your cereal this morning? Is there something wrong with discussing ballistics if your not part of some gucci seal/delta/swat team?

I did some steel penetration experiments early this year with Brown Bear HP, SP and FMJ out of a Yugo SKS. All would penetrate 5/16 plate and none would penetrate 3/8 plate. They would splatter off 1 3/8 tool bar steel without making any indentation.
