How does it run in your AKs ?

I've had no problems with it or the 122 gr. H.P. from Tula.

Runs great in my Galil ACE (only one I’ve tested it in so far), 3/4” group at 50 yards

It shoots good, is consistent, and is loaded stout at around 2450FPS


there is no better 7.62x39, and you wont find better effects on flesh in any AK caliber then with 8M3.

Runs well in my wasr. Granted I've only shot about 100 rounds out of the 1k I got but I'm trying to save it for a rainy day.

Runs perfect in my Arsenal SLR-107CR SBR. I have all of my mags loaded with it, and have fired close to 1800 rounds without issue.

Thanks, I've got a case of it that I bought due to "the effect" bullet, but I only ran a few magazines of it through my NPAP and SAM7R, and stashed the rest for bad times.

It ran reliably and accurately for me, but up to this point my range ammo has been Wolf 123 grain Polyformance.

I'm going to pick up another case or two and consolidate my 7.62 stock as Tula 8m3 for range use as well as defensive use.

And I'm going to pick up some more AKS too.

Thanks.

It is a great item made available for the US AK shooter by SGAmmo here:

https://www.sgammo.com/product/tula/...tridge-works-u

I'll not really know about "the effect" until TSHTFIE.

I do need to add a few rounds to the AK cache!

As cheap as the 8m3 is, I'd just run that exclusively if it's what you plan to use for defense. It's 30 bucks more than a normal case of Wolf. That's nothing. Especially when it's gonna be your primary go to.

Thanks, that's exactly what I intend to do after reading the replies here.

I've been shooting 123 grain Wolf Polyformance by the thousands and after testing it in my rifles, stashing a case of 8M3.

I'm going to buy the 8m3 for range use as well as defense.

No issues so far in a couple of Romanian builds, and a few Yugos.
Probably 600 rounds into a case so far.
