not gonna reload this!!!

this fall i want to purchase a cz527 in 7.62x39. its primary purpose is for when i get old and no longer use my big boomers. but in the meantime, i wanna to shoot it!!!! i'll probably go the way of factory loads. tula and wolf can do 18 - 19cents for a 1000 rounds. this is for 122-124gr hp and fmj and sp. tula has 154gr sp(for hunting deer) for 21 - 25cents a round. they will be steel cased and berdan primed, so reloading it is not an option. i can buy brass, dies and bullets(which i probably will) but i think that this should be factory loads.

i don't plan on any long range shots. it will be 150 yards and less for shooting deer. over 150 yards, i'll just be practin' n whatnot.

what do you think?

I wouldn't bother hand loading unless you're pretty serious about accuracy. I own several .223's but the only one I reload for is my heavy barreled target gun, all others eat cheap factory ammo.

If you decide to reload your 7.62x39 check the bore diameter it may not be .308. That caliber runs between .310 and .312 diameter so you'd want to get the right bullet for the best accuracy.

i'll probably go with the 123gr prvi sp(https://www.targetsportsusa.com/prvi...4-p-76588.aspx) for hunting and reloading. i was wondering if that bullet expands?

for reloading its probably going to the 123gr sst or the 125 or 135gr fn gc from
MBW( https://www.montanabulletworks.com/p...r_caliber=3220)

what do you think?

waynsee, i think the cz527 is .311" to do factory rounds(tula, wolf....).

Good luck with your choices, I know Prvi Partizan makes some accurate ammo at a real reasonable price. Hmm that would be interesting, 125 gr. lead flat nose with gas check out of your CZ527. The bullet diameter would be ok .311. If you reload those bullets let us know how ya made out.

I would stay away from wolf and Tula...they are .311 dia...l don't know if they will harm the rifling...but not only are the cases steel...but the bullets are bimetal also and will attract to a magnet...I cut one apart...both the core and the jacket stuck to a magnet.

I have a Rossi in 7.62x39...I believe the bore is .308...l believe priv partizan is .310...they are not bimetal...they shoot well in my Rossi.

I'm not trusting some junk ammo with my life...or my hunting seasons.



If you gotta ask "if the bullet will expand" keep shopping.



They may be great rounds...but I've never seen any tests with them. To be fair, I've never looked either).


That cheap ammo is best suited for the range and plinking IMO. Where accuracy, consistency, performance etc just doesn't matter so long as it's safe and most of it goes boom....another factor... quality control probably isn't really great.
