    They have cut that pic apart and list the calibers one-by-one. Just FYI.

    pookie - do you know if Vern (meeper) made any more of the 50 beowulf AK's other than the one posted on FALfiles a few years back or is he just concentrating on the quick change multi caliber fals?

    Honestly, no idea. I know only of that one. He doesn't seem to advertise himself too much.

    I found this site while looking for info on cast bullets in 7.62x39



    It's ironic that he bad mouths military rifles and the people who like them.... then his ideal hog rifle is a Yugo SKS that he butchers with a hacksaw. Guess taking that evil launcher and bayonet off makes it a respectable hunting rifle.

    http://www.castbullet.com/shooting/sks.htm

    Anyway, if it cycles in a SKS then why not in a AK47. Might make a good hunting round. Most cast 308 bullets come out larger than 308, so that could open up other heavier bullets for the 7.62x39.

    there are some cast lead loads on the net and in books besides his. 3" groups at at what distance he was shooting is a joke and likely caused by not crowning the barrel after choping the barrel. this guy is a cheap hack in my own opinion + he paid to much for the gun in the first place. I have shot wild pigs and the last thing I want is a slower softer round. A 150 grain soft point at a faster speed is going to work better than what he has. especialy if hit in the heavy shoulder on a big bore the shealds on those animals will stop a archery broad head (I know for a fact). he really cobled up that gun and made it worth about $50. he hates black guns but apperantly is proud of of cobbled up crap. an AR in a 458 socom or 50 beowulf or even the 6.5 grendal and 6.8 spc or a 7.62x39 will out do all of what he did and would weigh what he wants. I have some 303 british bullets 180 grain SP's that I want to try but this is going to make it a 100 yard or less hunting gun as the slow moving bullets will give terriable trajectory. lead bullets would be great for plinking cheap but consider the amount of fouling that you are going to have to remove. If he is really concerned for his life by charging pigs he ought to consider somthing that will kill it on the first shot like a 308 or 30-06. with a gun that wont group worth a shit at 50 yards it no wonder he has angery crippled animals wanting to kill him. try using something that will hit were you want it to and it will die there. I have seen wild pigs go 10 miles after being wounded.

    LOL you guys crack me up! I'll have to read his SKS chop shop story!


    (ahem, cough, cough, back to topic...)

    I found another cartridge:

    6.5 MPC

    If I have read correctly, this is a 5.56 necked UP to 6.5mm. Sounds interesting! It would be easy to make, I would think. Just swap a barrel on a .223 build and presto you have it. I think you could just get a resizing die to open up a .223 case mouth to 6.5. Simple, easy. I wonder about the ballistics... not much info on the site:

    Well said 1biggun and I know that some lead bullets will just flaten on the back armor of hogs.

    HC, I was looking around for info on the 9x39. It might be the easiest one to make up the dyes, use std bolts, mags, and such. Which lead to checking cast bullets and found several people that claim to have used the D166 Lapua bullets (200g FMJ for the 7.62x54) in the 7.62x39. None gave specs when asked. Something along that lines would be a short range round, but should have some knock down power.

    Has anyone tried heavier bullets in the plain old 7.62x39?

    Some were there is some info on subsonic loads for the 7.62x39 that shot some pretty heavy bullets. the trouble is you would have to seat them pretty deep to get them in the mag and that takes up case capacity. I was eyeballing that 6mm PPC brass that HC left that link to, or 6.5 grendal brass . thinking a better 7.62 round could be made out of it by taking advantage of the larger case capicty. but to be honest it is probably eaiser to just build a 308WIN/7.62x51 and have all the case capicty one could use. the 308x1.5" barnes is another way to go that will give better than 7.62x39 performance and allow the use of heavier bullets.
    I personally want a 150 GR .30 cal bullet that will do aprox 2500 FPS-2600 FPS or better this would be a perfect deer round a few 100 FPS faster than a 30-30 and just under a 308WIN wich is one of the best for deer IMOA. the 300 savage is right in the ball park as to what I want out of a hunting AK.
    the 300 savage is the round I am studing tonight. little shorter than a 308 this would give a little more room in the trigger guard of a converted AK if a mag could be shortend up some. max loads are about45,000 CUP almost perfect!!!!!! 150 GRs do 2600-2700 FPS and 130 GR do 2900 FPS+ that is 500 FPS faster than the the 7.62x39 huge improvement. 180 GR loads shown well doing 2500 FPS there is your wild hog round. also shows 170 gr lead loads at AK speeds. HMMM
