308 - 150 Grain FMJ - Red Army Standard - 20 Rounds
Red Army Standard is a catchy name, but donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take it too seriously! This 308 Win ammo is new production, not something that Soviets squirreled away in some warehouse a few decades ago. Each round wears a standard 150 grain full metal jacket projectile, just what you want for high volume shooting at the range when match accuracy and terminal expansion donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t matter all that much. True to Russian form, a Red Army Standard bullet is cost-effective because it has a bimetal jacket. Steel is an effective substitute for costly copper, although its ability to draw a magnet makes it unwelcome at many ranges Ã¢â‚¬â€œ particularly indoor ones. Russian steel cases drive costs down even lower. They make cleanup a snap so long as youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got a magnet, although they make handloading more or less impossible and have a habit of firing a little dirtier as well. These roundsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ cases are polymer-coated to support smoother feeding and extraction in bolt-actions and AR-10s alike. Red Army Standard loads non-corrosive primers.
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 SpeerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Lawman line of ammunition works to make all those risks moot. This 45 ACP cartridge features SpeerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 roundÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s heavy metal free Clean-Fire primer, the RHT poses no threat of producing airborne lead that could have accumulated indoors. This roundÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s lightweight bullet grants it a fast muzzle velocity, although you will find SpeerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
