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.
