Re: 7.62x39 soft points that expand???
I personally would recommend hornady steel cased v-max or winchester supper X if I was loosing sleep over expansion but............wolf hp rounds will typically shed there jacket and mushroom there core often giving two wound channels side by side after a few inches of close range penetration. With in it's practical range of 200+/- yards the cartridge does ok on thin skinned animals. Just like anything if you want the absolutely best performance it will cost more. What are you expecting to be targeting? Wolves, lions, tigers, bears, Zombie hordes ?
