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.
