Rifle Ammos Descriptions
5.45x39 - 60 Grain FMJ - Red Army Standard - 1000 Rounds
This ammo won’t work in an AR-15! 5.45x39 is for the Russian AK-74 rifle. Got a case of AK-74 fever? The only cure is a case of AK-74 ammo! Red Army Standard ammunition is imported from Russia and has all the cost-saving steel features that Russian ammo fans love. This 5.45x39 ammo is loaded with 60 grain FMJ bullets, the standard for range training. The main thing to consider about these bullets is their bimetal jackets. They are economical bullets because their steel jackets have only a thin wash of copper on their exteriors, but they’re 100 percent going to attract a magnet. Red Army Standard ammo is even friendlier to the wallet because it has steel cases. By forgoing brass you’ll save money at the expense of being unable to reload your spent shell casings, but these rounds still feed and extract efficiently thanks to their cases’ thin, heat-resistant layers of polymer coating. Despite what the brand name suggests, Red Army Standard ammo is brand new and completely non-corrosive. No special cleaning required!
45 ACP - 155 Grain RHT Frangible - Speer Lawman - 50 Rounds
Even the most cautious shooter is subject to certain dangers when they train. Shooting at steel targets and against hard backdrops presents a real risk of splash-back, where copper and lead fragments ricochet back to do serious damage. Splash-back is also a common problem at indoor ranges, where poor ventilation may also cause toxic lead to linger in a carcinogenic haze! But Speer’s Lawman line of ammunition works to make all those risks moot. This 45 ACP cartridge features Speer’s 155 grain Reduced Hazard Training projectile. The frangible bullet is comprised of 100 percent compressed copper particles, which are hardened but not fused together in a process called sintering. The RHT accordingly stays intact as it feeds and fires, but crushes itself into powder when it slaps a steel target or other hard surface. And in conjunction with this round’s heavy metal free Clean-Fire primer, the RHT poses no threat of producing airborne lead that could have accumulated indoors. This round’s lightweight bullet grants it a fast muzzle velocity, although you will find Speer’s training ammo reliably mimics many other conventional self-defense loads. Speer gives their RHT a distinctive pattern on its tip for easy identification, and complements it with a new brass case and clean burning propellant for superior functionality in a semi-auto.
