  • 7.62 X 39 Wolf Fmj Vs V-max Soft Point--you Gotta See This!!!!!!!

    My buddy and I wanted to see the difference a hollow point would make for our AK-47's, but noone in town had any hollow points, but one place had some reloaded 7.62 x 39 123gr with the Hornady V-MAX sot point bullet on them and all I can say is !!!WOW!!!

    Below is the wolf 7.62 x 39 123gr full metal jacket.

    And below is the 7.62 x 39 123gr V-MAX Ammo

    Both were shot out of my AKM 47 at 25 yards...Notice there is 9 shots with the wolf and only one with the V-MAX!!!

    That was all right!!! Thanks for putting in on.


    FYI, you can get 7.62 Russian on the internet for very low prices.

    ammoman.com is my favorite on-line dealer, and prices include shipping.

      Great footage. You should put all of this with a write-up in the gear review section.

        The V-Max is a devastating bullet. We used them on a prairie dog hunt in 223, 22-250, and 204 and the terminal performance was nothing short of amazing. Thanks for the videos.

          Thanks for posting this. I'm going to use 7.62x39 on deer this fall. I was planning to use Wolf SP 154 gr for expansion plus penetration. Would the V-max penetrate deeply enough for a clean kill on deer? No question about the expansion, from your video.

            The heaviest V-Max 30 cal bullet is 110 grains and I would not recommend a V-Max for deer. These are varmint bullets designed to provide explosive expansion on thin skinned critters. You need a bullet designed for deer sized game.

            For factory loaded ammo, you may want to look at this.

              Screw that. Go with Incendiary rounds against deer! (Kidding.. I can't imagine that's legal) I use:

              Oh and you mean 7.62 (7.62x39) Soviet, gerhard. 7.62 Russian is what people call 7.62x54R.

                I was shooting some of those rounds at the melons in the videos.

                I can't imagine that the 7.62 x 39 V-Max wouldn't penetrate a deer. I'd be surprised if it DIDN'T go all the way through.

                We took some shots at my old hot water heater yesterday too. The V-Max rounds sure made bigger holes than the standard rounds did.
                All went clear through quite easily.

                  I am not a deer hunter...yet (I am considering going this year though), but I do not think that the hide of a deer would be stronger or be able to withstand the power of a bullet more than the several metal layers that it has to to exit the back side of a water heater. As you can see from the link below that the wolf FMJ and the V-Max bullets both went clear thru the water heater.

                    The R is for Rimmed....... It's a rimmed case.
                    7.62 Russian is .311

                      I wasn't talking about what the R stood for in 54R. I was saying that 7.62x39 is commonly referred to as 7.62 Soviet and 7.62x54R is referred to as 7.62 Russian. I don't see how the caliber being .311 has anything to do with anything, as the Russians measured nothing by caliber.

                        It appeared that the R was inferred to mean Russian and some may have drawn that conclusion. Just do not want to precipitate that particular line thought. Normally "x 39" or "x 54R" sets that distinction between the two. I realize (now) what you were trying to say.

                        And here in the good old US, we do measure by caliber.....Just a little bit of a difference. Don't really care what rhyme or reason the Russians use.
