Winder, GA -( G2 Research announces a specialized new 7.62×39 mm AK/SKS round for hunting and self-defense use.

The G2 Research 7.62×39 Ripout Round is engineered to deliver serious penetration and produce a huge temporary and permanent wound even at the lowervelocities inherent of this round (about 2,270 fps).

G2's 124-grain, pure premium copper bullet expands (or, more accurately, opens up) into three large petals (tridents) of razor-edged copper making a corkscrew-cutting chunk of hot, sharp metal about the diameter of a quarter; big by any account.

According to company spokesman Chris Nix, “The design construction keeps the bullet intact, creating excellent penetration and a massive wound channel, resulting in quick and humane big game kills in this loading. It's very efficient as a bush country hunting round and it is also suppressor-friendly.”

Whether it's the humble SKS the popular AK-47 or new model short-throw bolt-action rifles chambered in this popular caliber, if it's low-recoil, accuracy and near-instant game killing performance one wants, the 7.62×39 Ripout Round is at the performance peak.


  • Caliber: 7.62x39mm
  • Velocity: 2,270 fps
  • Bullet: Pure copper 124-grain, CNC machined specialized expansion Spitzer BT
  • MSRP: $56.99 box of 20*

    1. Why buy this stuff when you can buy Wolf HP by the thousands for .24 a round.
      Non-reloadable, Berdan primed, but so what.

      1. I’d like to see some scientific gel testing as well as some actual kills by a hunter using this ammo. For me to believe any of these claims I need some proof, not anecdotal but some real scientific and real life use. Let’s see some hog kills examined by an expert in necropcy. how about some wound examinations with animals to explain the how of the bullets performance on the animal. Until I see this it’s just a way to separate me from my money.

        For instance many of the standard rounds being sold for popular calibers have many times proven themselves. As with handgun ammo by actual police shootings such as the Gold Dot and HST by ATK in 9mm for instance. Or many of the popular hunting rounds for .308, 30,06, .270 and so on. Even the .223/5.56mm has a track record for hunting and LEO/Mil use for various rounds. The 7.62×39 is a great round but does not have the same amount of scrutiny as other more popular rounds even the .300 AAC Blackout has more testing than the 7.62×39 at this time that I am aware of.

        You want my money, prove it works.

    2. For Bob above–and for the 98 million U.S. gun owners who don’t reload and want a factory round for hunting and maybe for self defense-because if you ever have to defend your life with handloads your court case has just got much tougher because that gives special a “ammunition” argument to a prosecutor to show your intent to kill in the first place. Don’t know about this ammo but I do now about the law and hunting. If I owned a 7.62×39 I would have a box of this stuff for hunting and other home chores.

    3. This just underscores the ridiculous prices ammo manufacturers try to foist off on us. I can buy 50 of (arguably) better, all copper, petal-producing expansion bullets for $35 bucks (~71 cents each) and reload old brass for a significant savings. I suspect most of us don’t want to invest almost 60 bucks for ammo so expensive we probably won’t shoot it. They’ll sit stuffed into a magazine for the long wait.
