This ammo’s cases certainly are magnetic, though. They’re made of pure steel, which is a whole lot more cost-effective on the production side of things than brass. Red Army Standard goes the extra mile to polymer coat their cases, which enhances their lubricity for smoother feeding as well as protects them somewhat against corrosion. Still, don’t make any plans to reload steel cases – they do not return to their original dimensions once fired.
These rounds’ Berdan primers are noncorrosive, and their propellant is clean-burning (do expect steel cased ammo to cause relatively more fouling in spite of that). This ammo is new production, not military surplus, and it’s ready for a good (albeit brief) home inside your AK’s magazine!
