I've noticed (in regards to the .223) that the application of the zinc coating from the Barnaul plant seems to be much better (smoother) than from the Ulyanovsk (sp) plant. I've noticed that they (the Uly ammo) tend to become oxidized (producing a white coating) on the exterior of the cartridges. They also seem to be less "smooth", which may affect function.

Unfortunately, the Barnaul plant only produces the 62 grain version of the .223, while the Uly plant produces the 55 grain.

Just looked at the link Yoda provided and noticed the 5.45 Silverbear ammo is listed @ 3820FPS. :shock: That can't be right can it?

yea , make that 3820fps into 2820fps :goof:

with the scant ammount of 545x39 chrono data that there is shows between 2800 and 2900fps for all the 59/60gr ammo from 16"barrels .

7n6 52gr running 2900 to 3000fps .

the 70gr stuff around 2500fps .

as with 762x39 , + or - 50/75fps from listed velocity is pritty normal however i've found 2100fps to 2450fps the minimum/maximum 16"b average velocity in 762x39 so far .
