I have access to some 7.62x39 SKS/AK 47 BULLET 'pulls' from someone here where I live.

My 7.7mm Arisaka mics out at .292 - .314 (7.61 - 7.92mm) at the muzzle.

Question - Can I RELOAD with these bullets he pulled out of 7.62x39 rounds ?

Seems to me they should work well...going down that barrel !

Am I wrong ?

well I asked a couple friends Friday, and they haven't responded, but looking around on the internet, yes, i believe you can. Don't take my word for it though and I know little to nothing about reloading I am just regurgitating what I saw in a couple posts on the internet. Trey

I didn't pay to much for that old Arisaka, I just bought it a little bit too soon!

They’ll be really light and hard to work up a load that stabilizes, that would be my biggest concern . If you can figure the grain weight and find a starting charge ,you can build from there using your chrono and watching performance and pressure markers . 7.62x54 pulls work well , I think the x39s will prove short and light, but there’s no reason you couldn’t use them,you just may never get them dialed in ,with reasonable effort.good luck
