Way back in the cold war era , the Czechs started making their own caliber for a short time , until Moscow poo-pood it for uniformity . It was the 7.62×45 , it was greatly superior to the 7.62×39 . I think that should be resurrected as an option for todays AKMs . SAme old story it was better but was shot down for standardization , Americans are the only people in love with the 223 , a lot of NATO , especially the Brits , have been trying to get us to replace it for years , they would prefer the 8mm .
