308 - 150 Grain FMJ - Red Army Standard - 20 Rounds

Red Army Standard is a catchy name, but don’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 don’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 – particularly indoor ones. Russian steel cases drive costs down even lower. They make cleanup a snap so long as you’ve got a magnet, although they make handloading more or less impossible and have a habit of firing a little dirtier as well. These rounds’ 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 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.
