This round has a 124 grain soft point projectile. Its Mach 2 muzzle velocity gives a rifle a decent effective range, and delivers nearly 1,500 ft lbs of energy out of the muzzle to transfer on target. This bullet has the right penetrative ability to reach a threat’s vitals, and thanks to its exposed core it will widen and tumble to make a much wider wound cavity than a conventional FMJ bullet could have.
This cartridge features a steel shell casing. An AK’s tough insides generally have no problem cycling through steel, and Tula’s own special polymer coating helps to reduce friction to make feeding and extraction even more fluid. Steel is more cost-effective to produce than brass, and you’ll see that handsomely reflected in this ammunition’s price tag. The less conventional casing alongside its Berdan primer make this ammo unsuitable for reloading, however – its chief drawback.
Uncertain times could always lurk around the corner. At least you can make certain your AK will be useful to you during them!
