And in Canuckistan, the magazine capacity for semi auto center fire rifles is 5 rds. So those long AK mags have to be limited.
Back in the day, I reloaded .308 WIN to duplicate 7.62x39 external ballistics using the 123 gr FMJ Russian .310" bullets. Nice light load in both the AR 10 and M14. Accurate enough, minimal recoil, and perfect for 200 yd practice or FAST run and gun stuff. I bought 1000 of the excellent and inexpensive Lapua bullets, played around with Win powder till I got reliable function, at about 2450 fps., and had fun.
But honestly, in 7.62x39 I would rather have a Russian SKS
OR a Czech CZ/VZ
NOTE: BOTH RIFLES HAVE AR STYLE SIDE FOLDERS AND MAGAZINES ARE PINNED TO FIVE ROUNDS
