    7.62x39 with “nub” on bullet?

    Hi everyone. I’m trying to track down some ammo that seemed to shoot really well out of my rifles. It was in a zinc plated case like Silver Bear, it may have even been a Silver Bear loading. The bullet looked like a normal FMJ, but it had a cylindrical nub at the point. It wasn’t a soft point, the nub was jacketed like the rest of the projectile. If anyone remembers this load, let me know what it was called and who loaded it. I’m guessing it isn’t loaded anymore, or I would have found it. Much appreciated!

    Maybe you are looking for Tulammo HP or Barnaul HP bullets?

    Thanks for the info, that's the stuff. Should have held some back for a rainy day. Isn't that always the way it goes. If something works for you, better stash some away. Guaranteed to be discontinued. Like the steel cased Hornady SST. Thanks for the reply!

    Match grade 7.62x39mm, that made me chuckle. I’ve tried loading 7.62x39mm , a bit like making a silk purse from a sow’s ear. I guess if I had a bolt gun I might get better results. It went bang and hit the target, i wouldn’t post any pics about it.

    Speaking of which, my .300 BO is about the same with my FMJ 150gr. Could be I just suck at reloading?😂

    I have a ton of the Silver 8M1 effect, never fired any. Not sure if it has any additional value or if it is either match grade or ballistically effective.
    Always looking for AK74 parts accessories and magazines. Let me know if you have anything no longer needed. Thanks

    Would be fun to see what the effect of a THO bullet is on stuff.
