My sole partiality is to that delectable spiced meat. Any additional confederation of vegetables shall not compromise the pie as I see it.

I was wondering about the availability of 358 bullets vs. 366 but apparently 9.3mm is a big huge thing I'd never heard of until looking for it so there's plenty of options.

Any chance you'd care to crank out some dummy rounds for the collectors among us?

Also, what do you think will happen if you chamber and drop the hammer on a 7.62x39? From a accident/safety perspective?

My guess is that if it even goes off, it will look something like this:



The bullet will fart out in a relatively safe manner, the case will then be fireformed, and the action probably won't cycle.

That's if it goes off. I'm not sure if the shoulder is close enough for it to headspace correctly; if it doesn't the firing pin probably won't even get a proper whack at the primer.

The coloration of the tip indicates that it's heated up significantly which ruins the heat treating/temper and causes the bit to soften and rapidly dull rather than cut.

Sounds like machining a bar of soap.

This whole discussion has shed light on why my stainless barrel has eaten a series of drill bits, though. :|

So where did you find to make suitable barrels?

How much for a straight up blank? Like, 1" round stock with a rifled hole down it of whatever >16" length they do them in.

It wouldn't be TOO difficult to appropriately thread one of these barrels and screw it into an existing 7.62x39 AR setup.

Yeah. 9x39 isn't really available in the US so this is essentially a wildcat project.

Why bother when 300 blackout exists to do basically the same thing?

You could also hit up these guys and see what size port they used.
