A local ar15.com (yours truly) member corrects the Dallas Morning news weblog on the use of 7.62.51 ammo usage in an ak-47

He shoulda given me credit though.


From the DMN blog

A reader who knows a lot more than I do about guns (sorry, drill sergeant, it's a gun) clears up the question of whether AK-47s (in use by GIs in Iraq) could use U.S. ammo:

The ak-47 does use the 7.62 X 39. However, the m-60 and the m-14 use the 7.62 X 51. These rounds are not interchangable, as the second number indicates the length of the cartridge case, in mm.
The 7.62 X 39 is similar in power to a 30.30 while the 7.62 X 51 is the military equivilant of the .308 winchester, which is similar in power to the 30.06.

Hmmm a writer from the Dallas Morning News at the Tom Bean shoot his weekend. Be afraid very afraid. The DMN is not the most 2nd Amend. friendly paper in America by a long shot.

Hell......on 2nd thought it might not be a bad idea.

This is an excellent idea. The writer could see and fire the firearms he has limited knowledge about.
Good public exposure can gain public support and that's worth dozens of letters to elected officials.

TXL, i knew there was a reason that txredneck and us fed you all that beer at gunstock...
now get that left wing buer-a-crat news paper boy out to a range and hand him a 22. when he buys his own then let him shoot your bigger stuff too. next thing you know, POOF he's a gunowner. then get him in the nra and move on to the next objective.
