History of 7.62×39 Ammo:
In fact, the development of this cartridge has actually had a fascinating history, one that has an interesting background. It is important to note that the 7.62×39 round, like many other rounds produced in the Soviet Union, was the result of strict central planning. It can be said that unlike virtually all the other things in the Soviet Union, central planning managed to get this one absolutely right.
The revolution in the Soviet Union began on July 15, 1943, at the time that the Soviet Union was fighting the Nazis. It was a significant day in the history of the Soviet People’s Commissariat for Armament because it was then that the Technical Council met to discuss the possibility of a Soviet Intermediate Cartridge, something the Red Army sorely needed at the time.
This new cartridge was to play a major role in the Soviet side’s military backbone, as dictated by the party’s central planners. The barrel is designed to be used with a light machine gun, a semi-automatic carbine, and a selective-fire rifle. This was the outcome of the work of a committee that included Soviet weapons designers along with (who else?) top military advisors. There were 314 designs considered by the committee before narrowing the field down to eight that were actually manufactured and then tested. It was in December 1943 that the 7.62×41, the forerunner to the 7.62×39, began mass production. As early as March 1944, the first 7.62×39 cartridges rolled off the production line.
