Looking to reload for 7.62x39mm. Any places have 1000+ quantities in stock?

Midway USA is where I get all of my inert reloading components. You might want to make sure, I think you need either .310 or .311 bullets for an ak or sks.

Might try Sinclair. I haven't bought any lately but they were pretty reasonable when I was looking earlier this year. 168 BTHP, Hornady Match.

I'd check out Cole Distributing. I'm going to be ordered 1k .308 bullets from them today to reload. I don't think the .308 they have are the bullets you need for 7.62x39mm, I'm reloading for 7.62x54mm or .308 Winchester.

you'll need .310 or .311 bullets. .308 won't work properly for 7.62x39mm

That may or may not be true, I believe Krochus(SP) posted some data that he did a month or two ago. I wish I knew about it before I bought 1000 .311 bullets.

This thread seems to contradict itself...the title "best place to buy .308 bullets" but you're reloading 7.62x39mm. Unless your bore slugs out at .308 you need .311 bullets for a 7.62x39mm otherwise you will not get a proper gas seal and you will have erratic velocities between shots leading to poor accuracy. That depends on whether or not your bore is a true .310-.311. They vary and some are as big as .313 and no 308 will seal in that.

Widener's had 147gr. FMJs in .311 a couple of months back (I bought a bag of 500), so you might want to check if they still have any in stock.
