N.B. We produce properly qualified 7.62 x54R FMJ ball, tracer and API ammunition specifically for the PKM series machine guns in addition to rifle ball and match ammunition. Not all 7.62 x54R ammunition is created equal and some loaded for rifle use only, without enough recoil impulse to reliably function a PKM machine gun properly with potentially fatal results in the field. While we do produce to CIP or SAMMI specification for civilian & match use, only Eastern Standard Military specification is used for applications such as PKM machine gun use and these different standards are not the same or interchangeable. A lot of misinformation circulates around in our ammunition industry, being passed of as fact; "Caveat Emptor" or "Let buyer beware". 

 

Special Note: Properly designed & qualified 7.62x54R PKM links, unlike single use disposable 7.62x51 Nato M-13 links and 5.56 x 45 M-27 links, are intended by qualified Eastern Standards to be reused up to 10 times if taken good care of. There is no need to order links with every ammunition order. Most of our 7.62 x 54R customers will order FMJ ball, tracer, API ammunition packed separately and load the configuration and mix of ammunition on an as needed based. Loading can be done by hand or with simple hand cranked linking machines. We ca also produce and deliver ammunition pre-linked and packed in 100rd cardboard boxes in green PVC "combat packs", 1,000 rds per case upon request as one of our company’s own innovations. This is the first time that Eastern Standard ammunition has ever been merged with our NATO packaging for the best possible PKM "combat pack". We also can pack the same for 7.62 x 51 Nato linked ammunition as well.
