This 5.45x39 cartridge by Red Army Standard is all you need to enjoy or train with your AK-74. It’s outfitted with a simple 59 grain FMJ, which ends in a boat tail to reduce how much drag it generates en route from muzzle to target. Russian ammo fans may have already guessed as much, but this round’s bullet is indeed magnetic. We haven’t yet confirmed its muzzle velocity.
Russian ammo fans are already familiar with the steel shell casing as well. By doing away with all the brass Russian manufacturers get to offer accessibly priced ammo like this to the international market. A handloader can’t use steel casings, and the metal lets more propellant residue into the action, but man, that is a sweet price tag. This round’s non-corrosive Berdan primer performs interchangeably with America’s preferred Boxer primer and won’t deposit corrosive residues inside your rifle.
