Magnetic Ammo, I need a round that passes Anyone own Wolf, Tula or Brown bear? Help a brother out
Sorry in advance
I know this topic comes up alot but here it goes:
Does anyone know of a 5.45x39 bullet tip that will not stick to a magnet?
I have searched all the sites and it seems like mostly it is people stating their theory, and have never tryed it out.
I would like to Hear from someone who has actually held a magnet up to a certan brand of ammo.
We all know the 7n6 sticks, but it kicks a lot of ass so thats in the closet for when the PC-hippies try to take over.
I just ordered some silver bear to try out, even though I heard it sticks.
But does anyone have Brown bear, Tula, Wolf MC, Wolf SP, Wolf HP, Wolf FMJ, Yugo, Bulgarian, Barnaul , in 5.45x39?I
f so could you please stick a magnet to it and let us know???
I know Hornady passes but it's so expensive it defeats one of my purposes of going AK. of going AK.
I replied to your post on calguns. Nothing else will work for 5.45, i have tried them all. Hornady is the only game in town at the moment.
It's not one of the ones you asked about, but Monarch blue box sticks to a magnet.
There is no "Yugo" 5.45 and ALL of the foreign made 5.45 sticks to a magnet. Period, end of story. I've been shooting 5.45 since the first Romy guns and Russian ammo came in...
Simple answer is buy the expensive stuff or handload if you want non-steel jacketed 5.45
thanks for the info guys.
I wonder if the steele jacketed stuff is more likely to be ok on ranges than the steele core stuff.
Steel core and steel jacket are two different things. The steel core/bimetal that the ranges are worried about is in the projectile that travels down range and not the case that gets ejected after firing. They dont care what the case is made of as long as the other end down range has no steel. The steel can cause a spark and start a fire. It has happened to a few of the socal ranges and thats why they dont allow it anymore. I hope that clears up the difference between steel jacket.
According to burro canyon Steele core is not allowed in Cali... I then asked him how I bought it online if that was the case. He said bimetal or Steele jacket is ok other than fire season, Steele core is never ok, it eats their backstops. I read on a couple sites that wolf guarantees their bimetal doesn't spark. I'm
Gonna get some and test it out.
How do you guarantee that steel won't spark? Sounds like they are noticing a drop in sales due to ranges restricting steel jacketed ammunition and have come up with a bogus claim. If they were smart, they would bring back the copper jacketed stuff that was on the market a few years ago. I never see this stuff at gun shops or gun shows, not even in single box quantities. Must have been popular enough to have sold out pretty well...
