Made by the same factories that produced billions of rounds for the Red Army of the former CCCP (USSR) and Iron Curtain regimes. The 7.62x39mm is an intermediate rifle cartridge developed for the Red Army towards the end of World War II and was later adopted for use in the SKS and AK rifle systems. It has since become one of the most well known and widely distributed rifle cartridges in history. The 7.62x39mm round is often touted as being superior to the Western 5.56x45mm round.
