I'm about to start loading for AK 7.62X39. I currently reload .38 Special, .45 ACP, and 22-250...all of them for MAXIMUM accuracy. What is the consensus on the best primer/powder/bullet to load for max accuracy for the 7.62X39...boxer primed "brass' brass? Thanks guys...

powder: AA1680

I personally use AA2015 because I reload both 7.62x39 and .223, and this is a good middle ground to cover both calibers.

I use 25 gr of H322---I plink or target shoot at 50 yards with Ruger Mini-30.
Using CCI 200 primers this is a light load---why tear your gun & cartridges to peices for plinking---these cartridges are hard to come by.
This is for a 123 gr jacketed bullet

I have had good results with H-4198 with Hornady 123gr SP and FMJ in a SKS.
I planned on using Accurate 1680 but H-4198 was $5 cheaper per lbs.

Be sure to fabricate a brass catcher unless you like chasing brass. Been there, done that.

For an AK.....don't waste your time just buy some tulaammo 154g sp and be done with it.

Otherwise rem small primed brass, n120 and Berger bullets
