Okay! We hope that got all the folks who don’t own AK-74 rifles out of the room. This 5.45x39 ammo is made by Wolf, the famous Russian manufacturer which takes as much advantage of steel as they can to drive their production costs down.
This round’s 60 grain bullet is the most common weight for commercially loaded 5.45x39. Loaded to a muzzle velocity of 2,936 fps, its G1 ballistic coefficient falls somewhere in the neighborhood of 0.330. This bullet has Wolf’s signature bimetal jacket, which is primarily made of steel and hence magnetic.
Wolf loads budget-friendly steel cases for their PolyFormance line of ammunition, which they coat with a thin layer of polymer to smooth out feeding and extraction in a semi-automatic rifle. Wolf’s modern polymer is far more heat-resistant than the lacquer they used to use, so while steel-cased ammo has a habit of letting carbon fouling into the action it still fires cleaner than before.
This is new production ammo, not military surplus, and it has the non-corrosive primers you want for a rust-free barrel. You can’t reload this ammo, but you’ll sure have fun firing it all!
