Default Winchester PDX-1 7.62x39

Winchester just came out with PDX-1 defensive x39 ammo.

I find this to be pretty exciting as there haven't been very many, 'modern' loads of 7.62x39. My current go-to is Hornady 123gr SST (the, 'Z-Max' ammo is the same stuff with a different colored polymer tip) which performs pretty well. My alternates are Yugoslavian M67 (that stuff is hot and fragments pretty good in soft tissue) and 154gr SP ammo. Yes there are others (such as Cor-Bon DPX and Federal Fusion) but I always welcome something new.

Regardless, good to see some other manufacturers making some improvements to the line (seriously, if half the effort that has been put towards 5.56 in the last decade was applied to the 7.62x39......)

I read about this on this blog:
http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...-pdx1-7-62x39/

Haven't seen any locally (and I can actually get ammo in my AO--bought 500 rounds of 5.56 in the last week at non-rape pricing in stores) but plan on picking some up as soon as I do. My local Cabela's carries the other PDX-line stuff (including stuff like, 'PDX Defensive .22lr' and other such nonsense) so hopefully I'll have some in hand soon.

Seen it online for ~$30 for 20 rounds. So, a bit more expensive than say, high-end 5.56

Finally another good option for home defense ammo aside from the Hornady SST.
