7.62x39mm Ammunition

 

It is often the case that a rifle is specifically designed and developed around a particular cartridge. Such is the case with the AK-47. For those who may be unaware, the AK-47 was designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov, and his often uncredited team, during the mid-1940s for a round of military trials that were instated to field an assault rifle chambered for the new M1943 cartridge, better known as the 7.62x39mm cartridge.

 

The 7.62x39mm cartridge is a rifle cartridge that finds it origins in the Soviet Union during World War II. Originally developed for Vasily Degtyaryov's RPD light machine gun, the versatility of the cartridge led to the development of the AK-47. It is believed that the development of the 7.62x39mm cartridge was influenced by the German 7.92x33mm Kurz cartridge, which was specifically intended for the development of an assault rifle. That rifle was to be the Sturmgewehr 44 – the first modern assault rifle. The versatility of the round led it to be used at the standard Soviet round until the 1970s when it was replaced by the 5.45x39mm cartridge. It has found widespread use in both the military and civilian sectors due to the popularity of both the SKS and the AK-47.
