But why, I ask? As this has to be one of the most screw balled ideas that I have seen in a while.
Now I have a fair amount of time shooting the 762×39 round, Up in the local national parks of Las Padres Forest when it was legal to do so. Back in the wonderful late 80’s and 90s’ of the last century. When a thousand rounds of heathen Red Chinese ammo could be bought for under a penny a round.
But even back then in those glorious times. I the rookie noticed that this was not the end all for the search for the perfect rifle round. Otherwise the Chinese would not be dumping Billions of rounds of their army on the American gun market.
As it is not really going to knock the 6.5 Credmoor or the 243 Winchester off the throne of super accurate rifle ammo. Nor did I ever even think of taking it hunting. Since basically it is designed really for close range urban warfare, Not Bambi busting.
So all I can say about this classic rifle in an oddball caliber. Is that it either it will wind up as an investment safe queen. Or it will be somebodys plinking toy. I.E. A very bright soul that stocked up a lot of cheap 7.62×39 back in the day. Grumpy
