I've got a nice russian SKS on the way right now and I just placed an order with Sportsmans Guide for 500 rounds of SP Silver Bear.

This is my first adventure into 7.62 land. I've been an AR guy for awhile and I've kept XM193 as my "mil spec" "poo-fan" ammo but I don't see an obvious corellary in the 7.62 world.

So once I burn through the Silver bear, what's the XM193 of 7.62?

Wolf...

Honestly I would imagine there isn’t a direct equivalent due to the round not being a standard US Military round.

I just look for surplus when I can find it, and I buy Wolf in cases when I find a good deal on it.

This stuff is corrosive I believe, but it would be good for SHTF when that sort of thing really doesn't matter anyway.

plus it wouldn't really mess with a chrome-lined bore.

what is the reason the Yugo stuff is so much more lethal?

I would think any 7.62x39 (since it's being shot out of the most reliable semi-auto in the world) would be lethal if you get a good shot. A well placed shot of any caliber, but specifically 7.62x39 would bring an attacker down.

Yes it would...

Go to Tactical Forums.com and do a search. Look for 7.62 X 39 in the Terminal Ballistics Forum with DocGKR as a poster and you will get quite a bit of useful info. I would advise doing the search , they can be a little touchy with new posters who don't look first. They have the best search function of any site I have seen. One of the threads gives the Yugo milsurp a good review for early yaw in tissue. HTH

Really I'm just looking for a reference point. I think of XM193 as the round to which all others are compared.
