Each round wears a standard 150 grain full metal jacket projectile, just what you want for high volume shooting at the range when match accuracy and terminal expansion don’t matter all that much.
True to Russian form, a Red Army Standard bullet is cost-effective because it has a bimetal jacket. Steel is an effective substitute for costly copper, although its ability to draw a magnet makes it unwelcome at many ranges – particularly indoor ones.
Russian steel cases drive costs down even lower. They make cleanup a snap so long as you’ve got a magnet, although they make handloading more or less impossible and have a habit of firing a little dirtier as well.
These rounds’ cases are polymer-coated to support smoother feeding and extraction in bolt-actions and AR-10s alike. Red Army Standard loads non-corrosive primers.
