My tax refund is coming in soon and I'm looking at adding some 7.62x39 Soft Points to my collection. After doing some looking, I've narrowed my choices down to either SGAmmo or Sportmans Guide to purchase my ammo from. However in the process I've become confused about which brand is better as well as grain size. Here's some of my choices.
Let me know if there are any real differences between these other than price as well as your thoughts about these rounds.
SGA - Tula 154gr SP $118.75/500rds
These next two look the same, but are different prices, both from SGA. This is where my confusion really comes starts.
SGA - Brown Bear 125gr SP $115/500rds
SGA - Brown Bear 125gr SP $129.95/500rds
SMG - Wolf 154gr SP $124.97/500rds
SMG - Wolf MC 124gr SP $134.97/500rds
SMG - Brown Bear 125gr SP $127.97/500rds
Right now, I'm leaning towards the Wolf 154gr for $125/500rds from Sportman's Guide. I've heard mix reviews about SMG, but the deals that are included in the membership might make it worthwhile.
The difference in your SGA Brown bear is the coating on the casings, one is lacquer the other is polymer, with lacquer being better for long term storage.
Personally I would stick with the 125gr stuff, and Bear beats Wolf in my experiance.
