(BOXER Primer) 7.62x39mm (AK/SK 7.62)
- Wet-tumbled/polished, once fired 7.62x39mm (AK/SK 7.62) rifle brass sourced mainly from indoor ranges
- This brass is commonly used for conversion into 6.5 Grendel brass
- May include a variety of manufacturers and headstamps
- Spent primers will still be intact in the cases and must be removed before beginning the reloading process
- Extra brass cases will be included to make up for any stray calibers, unusable pieces, or other cosmetic defects that may slip through our screening process.
- We make the best attempt to remove berdan-primed brass before shipping but can not promise that there will not be a few mixed in.
- Dents are extremely common because of the way in which the cases are ejected from a lot of AK platforms. They are merely an aesthetic issue and will "fire form" to your chamber the first time they are shot. Unless the case is split, cracked at the neck, and/or showing separation at the base, there is no reason to cull them. Wall dents will pop right out.
- We ship orders within one to two business days of receiving your order on our end. Orders are shipped using USPS Priority Mail which includes free shipment tracking.

7.62x39mm (also referred to as 7.62 soviet, or formally .30 Russian Short) is a rimless bottlenecked intermediate cartridge of Soviet origin. With the AK-47 being the most famous platform supporting the 7.62x39mm cartridge, it is widely used in the SKS platforms, as well as the RPK and RPD light machine-gun platforms. The 7.62x39mm officially started production around March of 1944 and remained the Soviet standard until the 1970s. During or around the 1990s the 7.62x39mm started to see use as a hunting round, particularly in the United States up to whitetail deer sized game. Many factors make the 7.62x39mm cartridge a highly favored round amongst the shooting community. One of the major factors include the high availability of military surplus ammunition available, which also makes the 7.62x39mm cartridge somewhat cheaper compared to similar calibers. Since the 7.62x39 cartridge is so popular there are tons of manufacturers that are both located inside and outside the United States. It is typical in “foreign” ammo they use the dreaded Burden primer which causes a big headache for the reloading community. At East Coast Reloading Supplies we check each piece of 7.62x39 brass that we offer for sale individually to guarantee these burden primers are not in the mix and you only receive loadable Boxer primers. Dents are extremely common in 7.62x39 once fired brass, because of the way in which the cases are ejected from a lot of AK platforms. They are merely an aesthetic issue and will "fire form" to your chamber the first time they are shot. Unless the case is split, cracked at the neck, and/or showing separation at the base, there is no reason to cull them. Wall dents will pop right out.
