I'm really stuck pals. 7.62x39 vs. 5.56x45. I want to like the 7.62x39 but 5.56 has so many different ammo types. If I only had to pick one I don't know what I would pick.
i have both an akm and a ar15.
just get both.
akm is better, but heavier. the ar15 is way easier to shoot and to take out on my land. lighter. but the akm hits harder. different philosophers
>picking a weapon platform simply from the caliber
>not picking either an ak or ar judging from what controls you like
>b-b-but muh 7.62 duz more damage!1 xD
>hey! i fuckin hate manipulating du ay kay and how its heavy nd shit but gee it's werth it for that 0.0000000001 chance im gunna have 2 shoot somebody
You're a fucking retard
Just get an AK. If you find yourself wanting more long-range accuracy, get a battle rifle and scope it.
Every time you charge your rifle from a non-retarded location, you will thank me.
What distance do you plan to shoot primarily? 7.62x39 will be cheaper and is all around better Imola under 150 yards as far as penetration and tissue damage (especially if using soft points), however it drops hard. 556 is much better than 7.62x39 past 150 yards due to less drop. Idk, they each have pros and cons and relatively perform the same. The greatest difference I can think of is their drop rate.
Depends on purpose. I needed a gun that I could effectively hunt medium sized game with and still be a good semi auto defensive rifle so I went with the akm for it's harder hitting cartridge.
