This cartridge has a 115 grain FMJ bullet, loaded to a fast 1,329 fps muzzle velocity so it can follow a flat trajectory. An FMJ may be a poor selection for self-defense, but it’s extremely practical for plinking and target practice. Importantly, this round’s bullet has a bimetal jacket. That means it’s mostly fortified with steel instead of copper, so it still feeds reliably but it will draw a magnet.
Barnaul saves shooters even more money by loading steel cases. Steel is less supple than brass, so it seals the chamber less efficiently to allow more fouling during ignition and won’t return to its original dimensions afterward. You can’t reload this ammo, but you can count on its non-corrosive Berdan primers to keep your action and bore unblemished.
