Barnaul loads this cartridge with a lightweight bullet. At 145 grains, it’s certain to surpass the sound barrier and issue a hearty cracking sound. It will also keep a flatter trajectory than the subsonic loads which you often see. This round’s FMJ bullet wears what is known as a “bimetal jacket,” which is essentially pure steel with a copper washed exterior. Such a jacket promotes reliable feeding without going on to damage a barrel, but its steel layer will unquestionably attract a magnet.
This ammo’s cases are also made of pure steel. As far as performance is concerned, you can certainly expect more fouling of the action when you fire steel-cased ammo. You can’t reload steel cases, either, as they lack the elasticity they need to return to their original dimensions once fired. But steel cases do make this ammo far more affordable than brass ones could have, and Barnaul’s polymer coating reduces friction to help a semi-auto cycle more fluidly.
This is new ammo with non-corrosive primers!
