On a previous thread we discussed a superior numbers home invasion scenario.

If this happens to me I would like to go to my Norinco MAK-90 with a 30 rounder if time permits.

In 7.62 x 39, is FMJ or hollowpoint ammo the best choice?

for home use i would go hp ammo , since 7.62x39 ball would overpenitrate and be a hazzard to the whole neighborhood even with hp you have to pick your backstops when stepping up to rifle for hd

I don't know if it's the right choice or not, but I only buy Wolf hollow-point for my AK...when I can find Wolf hollow-point, that is...:aargh4:

I'm with ******* for a couple of reasons. Overpenetration is one. The other one is HP by definition does more damage and stopping power is the whole point. Go with the HP's. They will be sufficient even against any BGs who have acquired vests.

I also agree with HP's.

If your purpose is strictly home defense I might even consider prefragmented rounds to eliminate the over-penetration issue.

I have only ever got the HP's - but aside from Wolf, sometimes you can find Barnaul too. Looks same.
