7150285: Question, aren't AP round basically "steel core" ammo??
Nick condo: I was pretty impressed by the training ammo
Oscar Delta: How far away from the steel were you?
BIGGxDAWG210: Nice video, good info
FPS Canada: That training ammo seems great for home defense the stopping power of
7.62x39 without the over penetration.
Apophis0322: The first time I've ever seen plastic cored ammo.
davkaya: video end at 6:00
semiautoriflelover1: Awesome test. Would, 62gr nato penitrator Rd go through the 1"?
Armon Kazemi: Great vid!!
cdezarn1025: but the sks is generally more accurate than the AK, and it's longer barrel
provides for more velocity and energy than the AK.
Dave Cotrone: Lol ive been subscribed for awhile, can't wait for that slidefire review,
keep it up!
avail1236: you're in maine right? what are the laws with AP and incendiary rounds here?
marek0086: I believe DU is heavier... but Tungsten is harder and stronger. BTW,
"carbide" is not a material on its own. Its "Tungsten-carbide"... a
The Ammo Channel: Yes, "best" friend! I appreciate you watching, please consider subscribing.
Got a few AK vids coming up soon including an optics upgrade and a
slidefire stock review. Thanks!
Meurz: What distance did you shoot from?
762gunr: Any plans to throw some AP into AR500 steel?
cdezarn1025: I appreciate it.
sirtom68: That plastic core ammo may be a viable round for in home defense use where
penetration of adjacent walls may be an issue.
Raymond Diep: this is pretty cool
avail1236: I looked into it. Maine law only calls out handgun AP rounds. Keep shooting
The Ammo Channel: Yes, no problem. Sounds like an interesting test, I never considered that
the sks might offer greater velocity so thanks for mentioning it. Also,
please subscribe. Thanks!
The Ammo Channel: Hi, thanks for stopping by, glad to have you here!
MrHossain110: AFAIK East Germany made it to be used with their WARSAW pact weapons
twistymcslide2: what kind of steel .
TheMetalheadMunky: question, why do the germans make 762x39 ammo?
Dave Cotrone: 0:10 I like that, the ak is our friend ^^
jack carver: why api penetrate the steel and not the regular ammo? are they armored?
BRICK productions: It's definately BETTER than the AK in terms of range and accuracy, but it's
still not a great DMR. Personally, I'd go with an M14 - it's a bit bulkier,
but it uses the 7.62x51 NATO round, which is pretty much all-around
superior to the 7.62x39
Josh Mango: was it the bullet i herd hitting trees and crap on the API 1 inch shots
rollthelosingdice: where do I get API?
cdezarn1025: I agree with you but i didn't say anything about a DMR or sniper rifle.
The Ammo Channel: Hi, my targets are mostly from scraps of large I-Beams and such.
actionjksn: I have been wondering if you could take a piece of tungsten and press it
into the hole on a steel cased hollow point 7.62X39 and get any armor
piercing ability. If you filed it to the natural shape of a 7.62 bullet it
should feed OK. I'm thinking maybe an appropriately sized tungsten drill
bit. Or better yet drill a small hole on the tip of a steel core round.
fazooon: Dude, great video! Well done.
breg77: A plate of armor grade steel costs less than the ammunition we saw in the
video, you just won't get it that easily. The chinese API round has
obviously not a mild steel core.
Trevor Luce: have you noticed any damage change to barrel wear or fouling with api ,
incendiary or tracer ammo?
mrmikesgunrack: Good test, thanks for the information.
InArms: nice wasr great vid
Alexandru Badea: Hello from Romania!
android17ak47: wow to think an ak can almost pass through a solid inch of steel(with help
of the api of course).
brickedawayinfinity: Another guy compelled to do free advertising for Walmart, 'Merica's store
The Ammo Channel: I don't think tulammo is steel core, although it would be nice if it was! I
was always under the impression that bimetal implied the jacket and or case
was something like copper washed steel or some sort of copper, brass, or
steel alloy like you mentioned. I believe the core is still lead. What do
savage1r: Wow, that API is awesome!
AdversaryOmega: Just because Germany makes it doesn't mean they have to use it. My dad (use
to) have 8 full cases of armor piercing 7.62x39 ammo in in wood crates
sealed in the early 90's. It got stolen. What a shame :( lol. I wouldn't
mind having armor piercing 30/06 just for the sheer energy potential of a
powerful .30caliber. Booyah!
JLXZ83: Nice video.
NinjightNationCorp: I like your style, very scientific. I subbed.
cdezarn1025: Sub'd. Yeah with the 4-6 more inches of barrel it would probably penetrate
marek0086: LOL... imagine having DU rifle rounds!
Bill Nadelen: What was the Distance??
Elementlmage: If you consider a cartridge that is ballistically inferior to 7.62x39 and
costs 3x as much to shoot "king," then yeah, I suppose it is!
