This is not brass-cased ammunition! Barnaul loads this 223 Rem ammo with steel cases, which are plated with a thin exterior layer of brass. This isn’t some underhanded marketing strategy, though. These rounds’ steel cases do make them appreciably more affordable, and their brass plating reduces friction to promote more reliable feeding and extraction. Brass also offers better corrosion resistance, so you’re safer to store this ammo away long-term.

Russian ammo almost always has magnetic bullets. Barnaul’s 223 Rem is no exception, as each round’s 55 grain FMJ bullet has a bi-metal jacket. It’s copper washed on the exterior for cleaner performance, and made out of soft steel on the inside for protection against deformation. You can count on this round’s bullet to deliver good target grade accuracy, but do keep it away from ranges which ban magnetic ammo.

Your AR-15 ought to have no issue igniting this ammo’s Berdan primers. Their performance is essentially indistinguishable from the Boxer primers which American ammo is commonly loaded with, and they’re also non-corrosive.
