Does anyone know were I can get 7.62 X 39 blanks. I bought a "nifty" golf ball launcher and now I can't seem to find any blanks .... :(

You can try Makarov.com. I know when I was there in the past getting parts they had some Barnaul blanks and I picked up a couple of boxes

Dan's is showing that he carries the 7.62x39mm blanks but they are "temporaily out of stock". Give him a call and see when he expects more in.

Also, Wolf shows they import it. I'd shoot them an email and ask if they know where you can buy some.

After you have checked with your reseller and determined they do not carry WOLF Performance Ammunition please call us at (888) 757-WOLF(9653) or email us at [email protected]

7.62X39 blanks

I have found some blanks and i have ordered them before to use in my golf ball launcher for my sks. Bloom Automatic sells the golf ball launchers in case anyone wants one.. Somewhere around 40.00 + shipping If anyone is looking for blanks that are handmade go to http://www.gunblanks.com/ammo.html..... Or if you would like to save a little money and do it yourself you can buy a die to load your on at http://www.ch4d.com/ it is a crimp die that will be the same as if you were to buy them enjoy just a little more work to load them yourself just incase you have some old 7.62X39 brass laying around....

Unfortunately 7.62x39 blanks are hard to find right now. Hopefully there will be some in soon.

I have a 7.62x39 blank die on order from CH4D and hope to have some blank loads worked up soon.

For shipping, blanks are classified the same as live ammo. UPS will ship them with an "ORM-D CARTRIDGES SMALL ARMS" sticker on the box. Post office says they won't ship them.

The E. German M43 blanks (the ones in the plastic blister pack) work great, but they are corrosive, so make sure you clean it when you're done.

I have some of the 9mm and 45 blanks from Swanson. I'm pretty sure it's Starline brass. Try them for the extended cases for loading your own.
