125 - 240gr load test


From http://www.accuratereloading.com/76239.html

7.62 X 39 RUSSIAN

A Sierra 240 grain Match King bullet next to a load round with the same bullet.

 

We chambered a Krieger stainless fluted barrel, with a 10" twist, for this cartridge. It was finished at 25.5 inches, and installed in a Remington 700 action. A Leupold 6.5-20 scope was installed in Leupold rings and bases.

Remington brass and Federal 205M primers were used in all the loads. All groups are 5 shots at 100 yards, and all bullets were molly coated.
