The Best 7.62X39 for a Ruger Mini-30

Save

Ruger introduced the Mini-30 in 1986. Chambered in 7.62x39 mm, the semi-automatic rifle uses an action similar to that of the M1 Garand and the M-14. The bolt is cycled by bleeding gas from the barrel as the rifle is fired. The gas drives a short stroke piston, which operates the bolt. Surplus 7.62x39mm ammunition is known to use corrosive primers. Improperly maintained Mini-30's develope corroded gas systems.

Hornady

  • Hornady produces a steel-cased 7.62x39mm round using non-corrosive Berdan primers. A polymer coating protects the ammunition from the elements. The use of Berdan primers makes reloading empty cases more difficult than ammunition with Boxer primers common in the United States.

Wolf

  • Produced in Russia, Wolf ammunition also uses non-corrosive Berdan primers. Wolf produces two types of ammunition for rifles chambered in 7.62x39. PolyPerformance ammo with full metal jacket, hollow-point and soft-point options. The other option is their Military Classic ammunition. The Military Classic ammo is designed for military-style rifles. Both types of ammunition are polymer coated to seal them.

Sellier and Bellot

  • Sellier and Bellot produces ammunition in the Czech Republic. Unlike Hornady's and Wolf's ammunition, Sellier and Bellot's 7.62x39mm ammo is brass cased with non-corrosive Boxer primers. This makes the ammunition reloadable.

Prvi Partizan

  • Based in Serbia, Prvi Partizan produces 7.62x39mm ammunition using non-corrosive primers in brass cases. Like with ammunition from Sellier and Bellot, empty cases are reloadable.
