Looking for a good hand load for a 7.62 X 39 rifle. Preferably using a bullet that is 125gr. Speer book says use a 125gr spitzer soft tipped but I'd be darned if I ever saw one.

Currently I load 123gr Hornady Interlock bullets using AA1680 and I can't even hit the broad side of a barn!! someone help me!

Good results with Hornady load data using .310 or .308 bullets. With factory ammo my Remington 799 groups like this.









Ruger No.1-A groups like this with .308 150gr handload.

Ram Rod,
In my experience, AA 1680 or Win 680 are poor powder choices for accuracy. Using a Yugo mini mauser off the bench, my best groups were around 4". Other powders gave around 2" groups. I used 125 gr. Rem. .310 bullets. Finally gave up and accepted that would be the best I could expect from the gun and used it to whack pigs at under 50 yd. distances.
