    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.
