This .223 Remington ammunition is built to last and will be available for plinking, range events, and general training whenever the mood strikes you. Each round is made using a steel casing which is not reloadable, but comes cheaper than brass: this is perfect for shooters who'd rather not reload but still want to save money while indulging in their favorite habits. Each casing is equipped with a non-corrosive Berdan primer and 56-grain FMJ-BT projectile which are both adorned with an ample amount of sealant where they meet the casing; this treatment keeps moisture out of the cartridge and makes this 1000-round case a perfect option for longterm storage and prepping.

In addition, the casing wears a very light protective coat which keeps the steel material from causing undue wear to extractors and chambers. The 56-grain FMJ-BT projectile is relative light for flat-shooting characteristics and highly manageable recoil. The boat tail rear of the bullet helps to reduce drag in-flight for greater stability at longer ranges. Speaking of stability, the smaller and lighter bullet is not picky at all and will fly cleanly from nearly any barrel no matter the twist rate or total length. Red Army ammunition is manufactured in Russia and imported by Century Arms, a company that US shooters will recognize for demilitarized import firearms and competitive prices.

A: Thank you for your question Zeb! Red Army Standard uses a steel case and is loaded with a lead core projectile with a steel and copper bi-metal jacket. So while these do not have a steel core, they will still draw a magnet and may not be allowed at your range. Be sure to check the policies of your local range for required ammo specifications before purchase!
