In great Russian fashion, this AK-74 ammo features steel shell casings. All that steel is why you’re not going to have to spend all your roubles buying this ammo up, but it’s also the reason you won’t be reloading it, either. Each round’s primer and case neck are sealed for greater longevity in storage.
This round has a Berdan primer, which is itself slightly more economical yet still ignites its clean burning propellant dependably. Red Army Standard’s primers are non-corrosive, so there’s no need to clean your rifle with Ballistol after your day at the range.
This round’s 59 grain bullet wears a bimetal jacket, which also contains steel. A lot of ranges don’t like how magnetic bullets might ricochet or create sparks, so check to make sure your shooting gallery hasn’t banned ammo like this before bringing it in. The bullet’s boat tail measurably raises its ballistic coefficient, although we can not yet confirm the cartridge’s muzzle velocity.
