Anyone go through rounds of this in an AKM and have any issues?:
Red Army Standard 7.62x39mm Ammo 124 Grain FMJ Steel Case

I couldn’t pass up the deal for 1k rounds of this from Target Sports. With things getting tense with the arms deal between the US and Russia I decided it wise to stock up. Never tried it and the reviews were great so it was either this or the Wolf. This was literally $1 more expensive. The price for bricks of both at Walmart are almost twice the price of Target Sports.

I use Wolf hollow points for both target practice and stocking up. The price is so cheap that I reach for an AK more than an AR when Im heading out for the range.

If it's the new RAS - it's made by Vympel, manufacturer of Golden Tiger. Check for sealant on the case.
The cartridge is lacquered and the primer/bullet are sealed with a purple sealant for long term storage I’ve heard.

486 bucks for 1080 rounds??
I’ll stick with the Wolf at 200 bucks per K.

Ok the 486 is for the brass case stuff.
222 per K for the steel stuff.
