Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Originally developed in 1943 for the Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova (SKS). The origin of the cartridge was that the Russian Army found the 7.62x54mmR to be too powerful for the ranges battles usually were fought over - about 300 metres - and therefore adjusted the 7.62x39mm down to reduce the recoil. As the 7.62x39mm is loaded with less powder and lighter bullets than the 7.62x54mmR Rounds, its effective range is somewhat reduced. This does however also reduce recoil, which means firing 7.62x39mm faster is much easier than 7.62x54mmR.
- The name and design of the box seems to be a parody of Russian ammunition brand "Brown Bear".
