7.62 x 39 Any thing new or more accurate than current?
For 3 gun smooth operation is key. No hard primers, no mis fires, no stove pipes, no flyers out of 5 shots.
Accuracy needs are be able to hit a 6 inch round plate at 200 yards. (plenty of people can hit a 2/3rds torso at 200 yards)

I have used Wolf FMJ, HP, SP 122-154grain, Military Classic, Win white box, tula etc. Out to 200 yards.
– Wolf 154 gr keep having a bad primer per 30 rounds. Total Primer hit. Purchased 2007. No Lot number on box. the UPC is 4561176271.
I finally purchased Golden Tiger. I will be training with the Tiger for 3 sessions and use tiger in a rifle match by mid September 2013.
Most Russian 7.62×39 is using a .308 bullet, The 154 wolf is a Boat tail but still .308
The Golden Tiger is a Boat Tail, and a .310 bullet.
What Barrel length are the ballistic tables using AK – 16 inch SKS – 20 Inch.
Most tables are for the AK. The SKS will add about 100 fps.
The only parameter I have not found was the Ballistic Coefficient for the Golden Tiger.
This number is critical in developing the ballistic custom table. Other critical number is the AVG FPS.
154 grain WOLF sp
avg velocity 2031 16.5 in barrel 2115 20 in barrel in this case almost 100 fps.
My SKS in a Chrono 2136 fps tested in 2007
Factory – 2104 fps 16 inch Golden Tiger 124 gr 2345
These articles reference the Golden Tiger.
1st day shooting the Golden Tiger. 88 degrees no wind
