Intro Song: “Issa Trap” by Mikey Geiger
"Let’s go for a real AK enthusiast caliber" has less control of 5.45 than the other guy had with 7.62… While using a Tapco mag😂😂😂 Fail! I really hope people don’t use these videos to learn about firearms.
10:36 whether you niggas
Was I the only who felt they were low key fighting for who gets to hold the bullet.
Straight to it hell yes
Is the velocity affected much in a shorter barrel? I know for the 7.62×39 that’s not the case.
Yes! 545×39 vs 556 that would be great! Do it
Yes do a video on distance shooting with 5.45×39 and 5.56
Also it would be cool to do ballistic gel tests. See what kind of wound cavity 545 does since it’s way over the 2200fps I bet it has a mean sonic wound cavity
Not for nothing but the individual in the black shirt has horrible trigger execution 😵
The 5.45x39mm is a very lethal round to be shot with due to the extra kill engineering it has. The 545×39 is a fmj on the outside and it has a hollow ( air cavity ) cavity below the nose of the bullet. Is is designed that when the bullet hits bone, the nose flattens out and bends like a boat rudder. It causes 2 wound channels. The first in and the second one in some other direction. Very difficult round for a surgeon to find and stop 2 wound channels from bleeding out.
Wow , 20 or less feet away targets , Boy that’s really pushing the range limits of the rounds. Great ballistic science .
Combloc AK or no AK.
Idk if you did yet or not. But yes! We would love to see a vs. video.
I have never put any stock in to this caliber, and holy shit what is wrong with me. 5.45 is a pretty damn nifty caliber…gotta give it to the soviets/russians….they knew how to design a weapon. I’d kill to get a full auto 74. I am fascinated though by AR-47’s (is there an AR-74???) mixing AR precision with a round as awesome as 7.62×39 is pretty cool. I’d love to see it done with a 5.45… maybe i need to google this lol.
I’m glad I made a friend happy. Converted him to God’s caliber. Sold him my SLR-104UR for the same price I paid. Meanwhile, I invested in a PSL…
is there any AR platform 5.45 is under 1000 dollar?
5.45 is MORE reliable
It’s still sub-dollar ammunition, and is practically phasing out my AR because of that… If you can find parts or a rifle, highly recommended.
I think I see a real , true zig zag muzzle brake there … 5.45 x 39 for the win
MK-12 vs AK-74 😉
do a comparison with ballistic gel and short barrel rifles please
Yes. It is. Video over
Good video. 5.56 and 5.45 are great cartridges!
Do it !!!
5.56 vs 5.45 gel test behind lvl 3a armor.
Still do not get the attraction of a RUSSIAN weapon on US soil! They or the Chinese will be on our shores a la biden. Just stretched their supply lines a few thousand miles, nice job!
the banana sticker on the yellow mag xD
I love my AK-74 (5.45×39), stocked up on ammo and life is good. 5.56×45 is another great round. Ford versus Chevy and people will always argue which is better.
Ask those officers in Dallas Texas how effective it was …that’s the weapon Micah Johnson used
I’ve resisted the 7.62 x 39, but this caliber looks really good.
"Assault weapons are classified as being greater than .22 caliber"
*5.45 has entered the chat*
Omfg chikita mag dump 😄
make the comparison video, all it does is make my 104FR go up in value 🙂
No more 5.45 🥺
Isnt it bad to fire a bunch of rounds consecutively? Not only do you lose accuracy but I am sure it would be mainly burst or one shot at a time
Ya I want to see which caliber is more accurate

5.45×39 has a version with increased power and two armor piercing variants
Yes would love to see the accuracy. Compare against a 6.5 grendal.
Short answer: 5.45×39 more effective than 5.56×45 by a long shot, literally.
AK is Okay! 🤓
Yes yes and yes!
Afghans call it, "The Devil’s Round."
Did you make a faloup?
If the gun dont have AK in his name its not worth of my time
Apperently the tuble effect is not liked no one wants a bullet to go threw the enemie and hit the hostage but it could be an ideal round for car smashing
Its just a communist 556 0:28
make the versus video!
Dont guns jam if you hold the trigger too long
