Tula usually loads bimetal jacketed bullets, which have jackets that are made mostly out of steel. Ranges which ban magnetic ammo don’t like that. But this special ammo is loaded with brass-jacketed bullets that have standard lead cores. There’s nothing in there that could set off a magnet, so you and your Kalashnikov will be ready to rock at all commercial gun ranges.
This ammo’s cases are absolutely magnetic, however, because they are made of budget-friendly steel. It is possible to reload steel cases, but it’s so much trouble that we generally don’t recommend bothering. Tula’s cases feed and extract a little more reliably because they are coated in friction-reducing polymer, which is also heat-resistant to help keep your AK’s action in better condition. These rounds’ primers are Berdans, but they’re every bit as non-corrosive as you should want them to be.
