"Hey, Uncle Joe, do you have reloading dies for the 7.62 Commie?"
As a matter of fact, I do NOT have dies for the 7.62x39mm round commonly used in the SKS and AK variants. There are several reasons for that.
For one thing, when ammo is available I cannot come close to the cost of Eastern Bloc imported ammo.
Another reason is that almost all of the ammo is steel-cased and lacquer-coated. The brass is not brass. Even if you clean up the cases the lacquer will gum up the dies and the steel is less forgiving of multiple resizings.
A third reason is that all of that cheap Eastern Bloc ammo uses Berdan primers rather than Boxer primers. The Berdan primer incorporates the primer's anvil in the case rather than being integral to the case like the Boxer primer. You need to use hydraulic methods to remove the spent case. That is a slow and messy process.
A fourth reason is that the ejectors for the SKS and AK varients smack the side of the case where the wall is thin. It is a very robust ejector but it knocks the snot out of the case. Nearly all US designed arms have the ejector striking the base of the case where the metal is much, much thicker.
A fifth reason is that the bores of rifles chambered in 7.62X39mm vary a great deal. Some rifles manufactured in the US have 0.308" groove diameter. The standard is 0.310" but they can be as large (or as eroded) as 0.313".
And finally there are the shooters...Conditioned by the incredibly cheap ammo most of them are spray-and-spray some more shooters. They can go through 200 rounds of ammo in a single session. Compare that to somebody who shoots woodchucks with a 22-250. Two hundred rounds will last him two years to a decade.
The round itself
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the round itself. Frankly, it is far more versatile than the .30 Carbine round the US fielded in WWII. It holds about as much powder as a 30-30 Winchester in a more compact round.
Shoot a home-intruder in the thoracic region with 7.62 Commie and an expanding projectile and call it good. That might be the only valid reason to reload the 7.62 Commie; the Eastern Bloc projectiles are tumblers rather than expanders.
So even though I was asked by a family member, I don't plan to start reloading the 7.62 "Commie"
