I was telling a friend before I watched this that Barnaul I notice gets great results. Tula is way off and for some reason poly wolf is too. Got 5 Hundred rounds for 2 Hundred at gun show during Corona. Thanks for the test Robski! Very helpful!
is it m43 or m67?
Just ordered a boatload of this stuff before I saw your review, glad to see you’ve had similar results!
You’re the best, Rob.
I called wolf and asked them what the difference was between wolf military classic ,wolf poly and the orignal wolf. The orignal wolf was made at tula along aide tula ammo (tula also holds the same zero in my ak as the orig wolf) the other are made in the barnul factory. With barnul ammo. I think monarc is made there from what i heard.
Is it bimetal projectile
Barnaul vs vympel? It seems like barnaul is more accurate and consistent but vympel has the boattail for better bc and terminal performance.
I agree, I use it in my two SKS carbines. It and Red Army Standard are the most accurate hands down!
Is this ammo corrosive?
What about their 7.62×54 ???
for a 7.62×39, pull a bullet and look at the diameter. often factorys are using the std .30 bullets so .002 SAAMI spec won’t measure up. there you got the spread
Just ordered a 1k rd brick 🤗
Hi Rob, great video and thanks for posting. I have a question and I need your help. I just purchased some Barnaul’s 125 grain soft point to use in my WASR 10 and PSAK 47 Gen 3. Do you foresee, or know of any issues with this grain bullet vs the 123 or lower grain bullets?
Thank you for the info.
Hello Rob, I can’t email on your website for some reason. Wondering if you could reach out to me for some advice. Email firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
But how about quality wise. I don’t see the neck or the primer sealed like Golden Tiger.
That ammo has fed well, performed well with no issues. Not only on my 7.62×39 but my .223 platforms too.
Ruger mini 30 with wolf hammer spring and the enhanced firing pin loves this stuff too
Price check 4-7-21 I just paid 430$ for 1k rounds shipped
Remember to keep testing to be sure they keep up with the quality level. Years ago I had a favorite German 22 long rifle high velocity that shot dime size three to five shot groups at fifty yards out of a customized Ruger 10/22. It was a hunting gun so a brick would last a while. Ran low ordered two more bricks and it was garbage. With 1300 fps at the muzzle the extreme spread was over a hundred fps with occasional round being two hundred fps slow. Found a substitute, waited three years and ordered a few boxes of fifty. Absolute garbage. Will never order any RWS ever again. Went to Eley and had to deal with the soft wax lube round but accuracy was great. Shooting sitting squirrels in the head at fifty yards doesn’t leave much room for error.
Just picked up a can and got recommended this vid
best 7.62x39mm for self defense?
in everybodies opinion? Im having trouble finding anything nice. Hornady sst and blacks are all sold out any good ammo with polymer or red/green tips ?
Sweet. I picked up a couple boxes hopeing the ammo wouldn’t suck. Keep on keeping on. Russia n America don’t let our government spread hate between its people. 🇺🇸 🇷🇺
Bought a couple boxes if this ammo from my local gun shop glad to see good results from Robski so I will be buying more soon.
Is Barnaul Hollow Point just as accurate??
Barnaul makes the bears. I have been rotating out wolf and all my crappy red army standard for it in my stock.
Just bought a 1,000 rds of this ammo for over $400 after watching this video…Was it worth it?
Picks up 1800 rounds of this & it works great!
I love this ammo. It is super dirty, and smells like cheap fireworks. But it does seem to work well. Accurate and reliable. I guess the caveat is that you need to clean your rifle more. The gas tube was nasty.
This might be a stupid question, but is this ammo corrosive?
Anybody run this in a KS47?
What about for self defense? Do you use the HP version?
If Robski is this excited about this ammo ,then you know it’s really great stuff.
Local shop had 500rd boxes of hollow points. Going to run them through my sks this weekend. Will have results when I get back.
I have never seen this ammo on the shelf. Only Wolf, Tula, Red Army Standard, Golden Tiger and Silver Bear.
Sad news people. Just tested the latest batch and its not as good as their older supply. Comparable to Wolf now. I should have stocked up on the older stuff.
Is the Bear series (Brown Bear, Silver bear etc) comparable? They are all made by Barnaul
I’ve seen all over the web that Monarch 7.62×39 (academy house brand) is just rebranded Barnaul. Can anyone confirm? I’ve have excellent results with those rounds.
wolf by barnaul, or century red army standard?
There is nothing better than Barnaul.
I was wondering if anybody had an opinion on the Barnaul mil-spec rounds that you can buy in the wood cases and spam cans. I would appreciate any opinions on it.
I just ordered a case of 500 and got a great deal on it when you consider what we just went through !
Looking forward to shooting it out of my newer AR-15 chambered in 7.62×39
I got the exact same 123 grain FMJ that you showed there.
I see extra range time in my future !
First 7.62×39 I ever shot was a branual. Love em. They have a special place in my heart
2300 FPS sucks! I thought RAS was weak. At that slow speed, who cares about SD.
Just bought 500rds of this Barnaul 123grn FMJ, will be getting shortly. I won an auction on GB $140 shipped to my door. $120 + $20 shipping…
The below seller has a lot of it and several auctions…
Couldn’t justify buying a 700$ SKS when an AK runs well close to that
What would you say would be your number 2 on best ammo list ?
Just bought 1 case of 500. Only used Wolf until now. I am looking forward to confirming the Barnaul. Thank you for the recommendation.
I couldn’t find the FMJ, so I got the HP. Hope it is just as good.
