Commercial 7.62x39 subsonic by Barnaul


Barnaul recently came up with commercial 7.62x39 subsonic loads.

Did any of these show up in the US already?



I did an internet search and could not find any listing for the subsonic loading.



Brian, thanks. Let’s see when the first ones will show up.


These are the images that showed up in Russian forums:


:-) Guess who asked for them?


Funny: 20 cartridges for civilian rifles…
Can someone translate the Russian version, has it really the same meaning?


The meaning is “for civilian rifled weapons”. As in rifles or as in guns with rifled barrels as opposed to smoothbore…?

Для гражданского нарезного оружия



Asked a Russian friend of mine and according to them the intended meaning of the Russian text would be “For civilian small arms with rifled bores”. Long way of saying “for civilian rifles”…

Thanks fors sharing. Looks like their equivalent to .300 Blackout, but without the possibility of firing a .300 cartridge in a 5.56 mm weapon.


Barnaul 7.62x39mm Subsonic is now available in Russia.
