A purpose built cartridge hat caters to the American shooter, with a caliber that is decidedly not an American round. This 7.62×39 ammunition offering from S&B (Sellier & Bellot) is their take on what American shooters want (Boxer Priming, brass casings; and Copper jackets). With the 7.62×39 branching out in the more recent years instead of staying well within the comfort zone of SKS’s and AK’s, this round can make a lot of sense in bolt actions and AR uppers that have sprung up on the market.
The clean build quality is indicative of S&B’s push towards the consumer shooting market in the USA. For years they have been producing surplus level ammunition and now they are making headway for producing even higher level cartridges that aren’t just for shooting in the desert 762 ammo
A 123 grain bullet is still in line with S&B’s philosophy of sticking to tried and true government proven loadouts, and the velocity and energy levels are exactly in the mil-surplus ranges (2420 feet per second of muzzle velocity and 1600 ft. lbs. respectively). The functionality therefore will behave exactly like the original, but with the added benefit of brass cartridge casing and boxer priming, allowing handloaders to play around with different ideas with the spent brass, and the cleaner powder comparatively to the older surplus ammo.
