Claim: A Cell Phone Saves the Life of a Ukrainian Soldier; 7.62 mm Bullet Stopped

A cell phone saves the life of the Ukrainian warrior, as shown when a 7.62 mm bullet got stuck and wedged inside the cell phone.

Bullet might have traveled a long distance and lost velocity by the time it struck (for those that claim this is fake).

The 7.62 mm caliber is a nominal caliber used for a number of different cartridges. Historically, the 7.62 mm class of cartridge was commonly known as .30 caliber, the imperial unit equivalent, and was most commonly used for indicating a class of full-power military main battle rifle (MBR) cartridges.

Soviet 7.62×39mm is used in the AK-47, AKM (Kalashnikov’s Automatic Rifle Modernized’), RPK (Ruchnoy Pulemyot Kalashnikova, English: “Kalashnikov hand-held machine gun”) and RPD (Ruchnoy Pulemyot Degtyaryova, English: Degtyaryov hand-held machine gun) light machine guns.

The modern versions of the cartridges are now in wide use in numerous world armies as sniper rifles (particularly the SVD family/Snáyperskaya Vintóvka sistém’y Dragunóva obraz’tsá 1963 goda (SVD-63), officially “Sniper Rifle, System of Dragunov) and machine guns (numerous types, many developed from AK family, such as the PKM/Pulemyot Kalashnikova, or “Kalashnikov’s machine gun”).

7.62×54mmR, another Russian cartridge, was first used in the Mosin–Nagant rifle in 1891.
