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 - 230 Grain TMJ - Speer LAWMAN - 50 Rounds
Speer® brought sport shooters and law enforcement the excellence of Lawman over 35 years ago. Back in 1968, the line included various calibers of centerfire handgun ammunition, and quickly earned a reputation as a high-performance and reliable product. Lawman is attractively priced, and the cases are reloadable with clean-burning propellants and reliable CCI primers to complete the package. Total metal jacket (TMJ) is different from full metal jacket (FMJ) due to TMJ bullets having no exposed lead bases, this makes TMJ bullets better suited for firing in indoor ranges since there will be fewer lead particulates floating in the air after firing .
