AKs and SKSs are staple on the battlefield, target range, and in many preppers’ gun safes. While a good supply of bulk surplus 7.62×39 is a must for the range or a SHTF scenario, a few mags of G2 Research 7.62×39 Ripout Rounds should be at the top of any shooter’s or prepper’s list.

Here is the full story straight from the manufacturer: G2 Research announces a specialized new 7.62×39 mm AK/SKS round for hunting and self-defense use. The G2 Research 7.62×39 Ripout Round is engineered to deliver serious penetration and produce a huge temporary and permanent wound even at the lower velocities inherent of this round (about 2,270 fps).

G2’s 124-grain, pure premium copper bullet expands (or, more accurately, opens up) into three large petals (tridents) of razor-edged copper making a corkscrew-cutting chunk of hot, sharp metal about the diameter of a quarter; big by any account.

According to company spokesman Chris Nix, “The design construction keeps the bullet intact, creating excellent penetration and a massive wound channel, resulting in quick and humane big game kills in this loading. It’s very efficient as a bush country hunting round and it is also suppressor-friendly.” Whether it’s the humble SKS the popular AK-47 or new model short-throw bolt-action rifles chambered in this popular caliber, if it’s low-recoil, accuracy and near-instant game killing performance one wants, the 7.62×39 Ripout Round is at the performance peak.

Specifications Caliber: 7.62x39mm Velocity: 2,270 fps Bullet: Pure copper 124-grain, CNC machined specialized expansion Spitzer BT MSRP: $56.99 box of 20 (Cheaper Than Dirt! price – click here)

  1. “OFF TOPIC”…But absolutely important!!! Listen to Hillary brag about Bill taking on the NRA to pass the assault weapons ban and her intentions to fight the Supreme Court on every pro 2nd amendment ruling and how the court has gotten everything wrong since the beginning of their existence concerning the right to bear arms including Heller V. D.C. and her belief that the NRA does NOT represent gun owners. Between her hatred for the 2nd and Trumps disgust for the 1st (not to mention Bernies disdain for the entire document) we are screwed!!! Get to anyone whom will listen.

  2. At $60 a box of 20, I can’t see too many preppers being able to stockpile much of this stuff. Having seen plenty of people torn up and killed with 7.62 ball, or occasionally HP, I think it would be a better investment for a prepper to stock up on more ammo for the same money.

    That’s one heck of a lot of Wolf 7.62, and if we really are talking about a SHTF scenario, then more is better because it’ll go on for a while.

    This is another case of someone offering overpriced specialist items that we “just can’t do without.”

  3. I will also have to test a box or two wonder if they are going to offer the bullets for handloaders like myself? The AK round is the only round in my arsenal including mil-surps that i do not handload for .I have found that the brass and cost of components can not beat the price of the spam cand and other ammo out there offered in 7.62×39 in bulk .

  4. At fifty bucks a box of 20, I’ll stick to the Euro brass cased stuff at $316.00 a case of 1100.. The only big game my AK and Windham in the same load will be hunting is the two legged variety and that ammo has been killing that particular species all over the world since it’s inception…

  5. It sounds like a high priced Barnes CorBon DPX round that i use Regularly. The 123gr DPX round has proven it self to me time and time again with a SKS and A Saiga. As I live in Commiformia I have to use lead free bullets to hunt with and the Barnes DPX in 7.62×39 has become a staple round for my Saiga IZ123 and my Yugo SKS. I have taken 7 hogs and 4 Mule Deer with the round. It has great penatration and expansion even going through a hogs shoulder bone and into the chest cavity blowing out the heart befor passing out the other side of the pig. The wound channel seened about the size of a quarter to a fifty cent peace. This is an exceptional hunting round for an AK or SKS
    With a 4x POSP scope on the Saiga I can average about 1.25″ groups all day long at 100 meters and the SKS will tighten the group even more. The best group ever was.81″ with the DPX and the SKS so if you do your part this round will do its part. the DPX rounds run about $32 bucks a box and the Trident are almost $58 bucks. I think I will stick to the Barnes CorBon DPX 123 grain rounds myself.
    If anyone decids to give these a go let me know. I might try to find the bullets and work up a reload for them. Might save some major bucks

  6. Well, this looks wayyyy more promising than there gimmikey R.I.P. rounds. I think I’ll actually test these new rounds out. See how they fare through some gelatin and denim.

    1. Looks like they’re ramping up for other calibers. Their website only lists handgun calibers and 300 blackout in rifle, I suspect the 7.62×39 and other rifle calibers will be listed there soon.

    2. If the moderator is going to continue to let you post off topic politics, I’ll bite. You’re preaching to the converted about Hillary around here, I don’t think you’re going to find many fans of her.

      Your criticism of Bernie is off-base at best, he’s not going to try and throw out any part of the constitution or take your guns. He’s been elected by the people of Vermont for years. I’m more intersted that you’re not fooled by Trump’s rhetoric as many on your side seem to be. If we’re all screwed as you say, who are you voting for?
