New Hornady 7.62x39mm Subsonic Sub-X Ammo Announced

Russian-produced ammunition is getting harder and harder to come by these days with limited domestic production and foreign imports curtailed by world events. However, all hope is not lost as Hornady Ammunition has just announced the introduction of their new 7.62x39mm Subsonic Sub-X ammunition. Hornady will produce a new 255-grain Sub-X projectile loaded to subsonic speeds out of 20-inch barrels that should be more than capable of taking down game.

Hornady® Subsonic Ammunition — designed for accuracy and performance below the speed of sound — now comes in both rifle and handgun loads.

Subsonic Handgun utilizes tried-and-true XTP® bullets that expand reliably at subsonic velocities. The Sub-X bullet used in Subsonic Rifle features a lead core. Long grooves in its gilding metal jacket combine with the bullet’s flat profile and the patented Flex Tip® insert within its hollowpoint cavity to help it expand reliably at low velocities.

Powders are selected for optimal performance and consistency from lot to lot.

Sub-X® (Subsonic — eXpanding) bullets deliver big results without a big bang! Designed to provide deep penetration below the speed of sound, Sub-X® features a lead core. Long grooves in its gilding metal jacket combine with its flat profile and the patented Flex Tip® insert within the bullet’s hollowpoint cavity to help it expand reliably at low velocities. Cannelures provide positive case crimp, making Sub-X® ideal for semiautomatic weapons.

Like much of Hornady’s premium ammunition the new Subsonic Sub-X ammo will feature the familiar red-nosed expansion tip but in a larger format to enhance the expansion of the bullet for its planned lower velocities. A quick look at the velocity data sheet shows us that we can expect a 100-yard velocity of just under 1000 FPS which would be fast enough to reliably and consistently expand the projectile in soft targets. What’s very impressive already is that Hornady has managed to get such a heavy projectile to not only cycle reliably out of AK-type rifles but also stabilize out of standard AK barrels.
