There are two different kinds of MAXXTech ammunition. The brass-cased rounds are made in Bosnia by Pobjeda Technology; the steel-cased rounds, on the other hand, are made in Russia by Tula. This is MAXXTech’s Essential Steel line of 7.62x39 ammunition, which your very large and powerful brain has already assumed is steel-cased. You will see Tula’s headstamp on this ammo’s cases!

What is the point of this AK and SKS ammo’s steel cases? There is only one: They are cheaper to manufacturer than brass, which is reflected by this ammo’s price tag. The main downside of a steel case is that it is just as reloadable as an empty can of chicken noodle soup, which is to say that it is not reloadable. Rigid steel cases also typically let more propellant residue inside of a rifle’s action, which only means you’ll have to spend a little more time cleaning.

This ammo doesn’t only contain steel in its cases. Its 122 grain full metal jacket projectiles have lead cores and bi-metal jackets, the latter of which are nearly entirely made out of steel. Why is that important? Because many commercial ranges do not allow bi-metal jacketed bullets on their premises, as they pose a higher chance of damaging range equipment. If you want ammo for a range which bans “magnetic ammo,” then you do not want this ammo!

Berdan primers are the more cost-effective alternative to Boxer primers. They still behave the same way when they are struck by a firing pin, and they are completely noncorrosive.
