    Using 5.56 in a 7.62. Where did this rumor come from?

    A while back a guy I know indicated that he stores an excess amount of 5.56 ammo because he can use it in his AK if he had to.

    Where did this rumor come from and has anyone had success with this? Neither chamber in the other. When you google it some say its possible but how if the bullet doesn't chamber???

    Maybe he had a 5.56 AK.

    Or, maybe he was full of shit. Yeah that could be it.

    Of course he's FOS, but if you want to have some fun ask him how well it shot last time he tried it.

    It's possible, we had done the same experience with Krink, & that was a surprisingly successful.

    Ok. But a 5.45 bullet would not fit in the chamber. The cartridge shoulders sit far too low. That is why the 5.56 wont even chamber in a 7.62.

    I need a video of this happening....Im sorry but I need to throw in the Bullshit Flag

    Yes but accuracy would only be affected a little bit. Besides there's a video on the internet. So it has to be true. I once shot 9x19mm in my pistol chambered for 9mm Luger.

    Even if you COULD detonate the primer a 5.56mm bullet bouncing down a 7.62mm bore wouldn't have enough (ANY) pressure to even clear the muzzle if the barrel wasn't tipped forward! It'd be virtually the same ballistics as throwing a 5.56 round in a camp fire. As my kid used to say UMPOSSIBLE.

    I've heard that bullshit too from old NAM' vets who used that "trick" when they ran out of commie bullets and just used M16 rounds instead in their 1969 "Captured" Arsenal SLR-107 side folder with Kobra sight...ALL original from 1969 and even had BLOOD pitting that the mil spec issue Windex cleaning wouldn't remove...

    TOTAL BS....

    Sorry. But the 5.56 wont even fully chamber....even if you pull the trigger, the hammer just hits the bolt carrier...

    Crock of $hit.….

    And another thing...the logic that shooting 9mm short and 9mm luger can be shot out of the same gun, therefore, you can shoot 5.56 out of a 7.62 gun is absurd.

    I should have just done this to begin with instead of wasting everyone's time; however, now we can all tell people, that propagate this crap, what the truth is.

    Case closed...thanks guys!

    For your info Einstein 9mm short = 9x17. 9mm Luger/Parabellum = 9x19. It was sarcasm. Stick to Airsoft dude.
