This cartridge quickly gained popularity after being modernized – especially in the Ak47 Assault Rifle which saw world-wide acceptance of the cartridge and weapon system. While used in hunting applications this cartridge exhibits exceptional killing power on all manner of game, however, it is best used on game up to small to medium sized deer and out to a range of 150 to 180 metres – at that range, the “knock-down” area of the animal is not exceeded by the trajectory of the projectile. More experienced shooters have reported surprising results in excess of 250 metres – however, this is not a recommend opening range. At distances over 120 metres and on heavier game, the projectile causes minor tissue damage and is therefore an excellent choice when a hunter is shooting for meat – not a trophy.
