after reading through the post quoting Ed Harris' articles on casting and loading for 7.62x39, I still have a question....
do I need to gas check these loads ???
312-155 bullet cast from wheel weights, water quenched and cured for two weeks.
~15 grains of 2400
pan lubed with NRA 50/50
fired in an Kalashnikov action rifle with a 16" barrel.
same as above, but with ~18gr of 1680
