There is different kind you can buy. They are fairly cheep.
Here is a link so you can get an idea.
AK47 Ammunition Review

I think you can get some .223 monarchs at Academy for a good price.
But Monarchs are very dirty ammo most people dont like them.

1.) An AK-47 doesn't shoot .223, she needs 7.62x39

2.)Most people down here like Monarch due to it's price...just clean your gun.

yes...but they make up a very small percentage of AK's... actually less than 1%

If someone doesn't specify they usually have a 7.62x39....

maybe we should ask her???

Ilovepinkguns, can you get to his gun and see what it says, if anything, on the gun?

While y'all are comparing calibers, don't forget the other commie round, the 5.45x39.

ilovepinkguns, you can read the side of the rifle and it should tell you what caliber it uses.

At the least, get us a picture of the magazine it uses.

Not trying to bust anyones chops...

just most are in 7.62

Kinda like when someone says they have an AR....unless they specify, most of us assume it is .223 even though they make them in other calibers.

the cal should be stamped or engraved on the left side of the gun
it likely says 7.62X39
