7.62x39 and 6.8SPC

7.62x39 is a heavier grain bullet. it is cheaper, and more widely available. I would personally prefer this round in CQB. 6.8SPC will be more accurate at longer ranges. it is a lighter bullet, therefore you can carry more of it. It is a good improvement on the 5.56.

I personally like the 6.5 Grendal. its ballistically beats the 6.8SPC at distances over 500m and has a heavier grain bullet that can penetrate light armor. it has a slower start but ends faster. it rivals the 7.62NATO. check it out

7.62x39 vs. 6.8

The 7.62x39, as said above, isn't as accurate over long distances. But in realistic terms, if your considering a round for defending yourself, your not likely to be engaging someone at a distance where the 7.62x39's range would be a big problem.

The 6.8SPC is in line to replace the 5.56 as the general issue round, and while it dosen't have the weight of a 7.62x39, it'll be a step up from the 5.56 for medium range engagements.

The respective wikipedia articles are good reading material to look at, by the way.

love 7.62

i love the 7.62 for at home when im just plinking but the 6.8 is all round better bullet it has the accuracy of the 5.56 and the stopping power of the 7.62. and if i had the money i would buy the Barret m468 in a hart beat.

suport our troops where ever thay are!
