    7.62x39 HBAR, safe to flute and contour?

    So on a heavy barrel for this caliber, is it ok to contour under the handguard and flute ahead of the gas block? I did it to my 5.56 heavy, just want to make sure I could do the same for 7.62x39.

    Alternative recommendations?

    You (should) be fine. Bore is bigger so you can't go as deep but you should still be able to remove some weight.
