    Default Consistency of 7.62x39 ammo

    Consistency of 7.62x39 ammo
    I was watching some older Robski videos on ammo testing , velocity, extreme spread, and standard deviation. Of course the Finnish Lapua did very well, but what was most surprising was the statistics of the Federal American eagle. A standard deviation of 9 for military ball ammo is very good. Optimistically, when this current ammo crisis I will look into trying out some american eagle and if it is any good I will buy some. While the AK is not a tack driver, The AR in 7.62x39 can shoot into an MOA people tell me. I expect that any AK with decent ammo should be as accurate as the expected rack grade accuracy of a Garand rifle of 3 MOA or better.

    I got plenty of the exCombloc ammo on hand. It is about time that I acquire some superior ammo. I will soon be reloading boxer primed brass with decent bullets first since I have that on hand. Gun can not preform better than the quality of its ammo. SD is not the whole story for accuracy of course, bullet consistency and that of the loaded round are a big part of the story also.

    Where are you finding AE 7.62x39? I wouldn't mind buying a case.
