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 FNEB - Remington Subsonic - 50 Rounds
Do you have a 45 ACP handgun? Do you also have a suppressor? Then all you need now is the ammo. Remington and Advanced Armament Corporation codeveloped this ammo so you can maximize your suppressed handgun’s performance. The 45 ACP is already a subsonic cartridge, and Remington’s Subsonic label ammo certainly doesn’t reinvent the wheel in that department. What this cartridge offers that’s special is its bullet: a flat nose enclosed base. No part of the bullet’s core is exposed to hot propellant gasses during ignition, so you can look forward to not having to scrub any lead residue off of your suppressor’s ports or baffles. This bullet’s flat nose profile won’t deliver terminal expansion. But if your objective is to avoid deafening yourself while you use your handgun during home defense, you’ll still find 230 grains of lead and copper suitable for the job. This bullet transfers more than 320 ft lbs of energy over any distance your home could possibly contain. Even if it hasn’t got a suppressor, your handgun should have zero difficulty cycling this brass-cased, non-corrosive and clean-burning American-made ammunition.
