Federal Power-Shok, 7.62x39mm, SP, 123 Grain, 20 Rounds is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pheardom from Quality AmmoNot a lot of choices for US made 762x39 hunting ammo. My range use has shown that this is a little better ammo than eastern European made SP ammo, if it is worth the cost difference, that's up to you. Between this or Federal's Fusion or Hornady Black, I'll buy whichever box is cheapest that day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pheardom from Eye openerI have a 762x39 in an AR platform I purchased for deer season, but picked this caliber for range plinking economical fun.Tried Hornady SST, Federal Fusion, Sellier Bellot SP, PPU SP, Brown - Golden and Silver Bear SP(s), TulAmmo FMJ (not for hunting), Wolf HP and SP and Red Army FMJ.... This Federal Power-Shok makes tighter groups, period. On 4 different range visits, noticably tighter than any of the others. Surprised, but seriously, I have no explanation other than confessing that I've witnessed it first hand, repeatedly.I cant imagine why I would hunt with anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoprJD from $21.00I bought these rounds for hunting Whit tail deer and in case the SST bullets I bought are damaging to much meat .

Rated 5 out of 5 by rory11us from Great off the shelf round. Highly Recommended!!!I have used the Federal Blue Box 7.62x39 123gr Power Shok ammo in a CZ527 bolt gun with an 18" barrel with optics and shot 5 round groups under 1/2" @ 100 yards, and shot 1" groups @ 200 yards. I have used this in a VZ2008 Sporter semi-auto rifle with a 16" barrel with open sights and have shot 5 round groups under 1" @ 100 yards. Results so good, I bought 600 rounds of this ammo. Expansion is great too. I always Chronograph off the shelf ammo to verify speed and this ammo hits 2360 on average out of an 18" barrel. In fact most Federal Blue Box Power Shok ammo in any caliber produces excellent groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnnyReb from Never had to track an animal hit with this bulletI have been shooting this ammo for more than 15 years and it just plain works! I have a Ruger Model 77 in 7.62 X 39 and I shoot almost 1", 3 shot groups at 100 yards. Never a group larger than 1.5". I have harvested deer and pigs and I have never lost a critter. The bullet flies true and hits hard. I have only had one animal run - with a blown out heart - for 40 yards. I have also had lots of children hunt with this rifle and ammo and the results are always the same - one shot, one kill. With full confidence, I recommend the Federal Power Shock (blue box) 7.62 X 39 ammo!
