    7.62x39 ammo what is your favorite or does it matter?

    I still have some of the Norinco yellow box and some steel core ammo. I have some WPA and some Tula besides that. What is your favorite 7.62x39 ammo to shoot or does it even matter these days? I usually buy by the case, but came across some Tula at Wally World today and got a box just because I have another AK now.
    MAGA- let's get this show on the road!

    As long as it's decent ammo then it doesn't matter to me.

    Never tried tula but heard enough to stay away from it.

    Whatever works. Shoot WPA, Tula and Uly out of my commie guns without a hitch.

    Without ammo, it may as well be an expensive door jam or paperweight.....

    All your guns don't mean squat if you don't have the ammo to feed them....

    Mostly Brown Bear (Barnaul) which Wolf also uses in their Polyformance and WPA lines. Of these brands, I can usually price compare and find a good deal and since it's all Barnaul, I know it will be good.

    I have some Golden Tiger to still try yet - I am sure it will be fine. I am not opposed to TulAmmo or Uly white box if they are also priced right. I haven't tried Red Army Standard yet in x39, but I know their 54R does well.

    Never had a problem with Tula. I stash Golden Tiger, and I also stash Brown Bear, but that's the first thing I shoot as I just went through the little bit of Tula have left.

    Havent compared ammo for accuracy differences but for reliability sake Tula, Wolf, Brown Bear, Yugo & Golden Tiger all work fine for me. I did get a batch of the Wolf ammo (If I recall correctly) that was corrosive and had to return it. That was a headache since I had loaded a bunch of mags with it and then had to unload all my magazines. I prefer the Golden Tiger and Brown Bear for long term storage.

    I don't like dealing with UPS or FedEx, as I am rarely home when they arrive; I typically buy whatever is available at Mills Fleet Farm for the lowest price (WPA and occasionally Red Army Standard when it's on sale).

    I never had a problem with any of it. I like the South African brass cased, that you could get for cheap years ago. I shot some Yugo surplus brass cased, no problems but really corrosive .

    Same here. Had a squib with Tula and will never shoot it again. Mostly GT and BB.
