Some of us who have owned bolt-action 7.62x39's have known for years what a capable, fun, accurate and inexpensive combination this is. I'm glad to see others will get to share the love as the acceptance for this caliber in a bolt action becomes more common. Ruger's decison to chamber their American Ranch in 7.62x39 - especially using mini-mags - was very timely. Howa's mini-action 7.62x39 rifle is another that I'm sure will make it's owner grin every day at the range, or in the woods. Every time I take a group of friends to the gun range, my Savage 10 in 7.62x39 is without a doubt the most passed-around, enjoyed rifle we all shoot. With sub-MOA, $5.99/box ammo, nobody feels bad about emptying a magazine or two (or three). And with downrange energy that equals or surpasses the (dare I say) venerable 30-30, nobody should feel undergunned in the deer woods with a 7.62x39 anymore. These are good days for gun owners.
