I found some private 5.45x39 for a reasonable price, but I'd be interested in additional info... Two different mfg'ers were obtained.

1st--A white box of 25 rds mfg in Russia. Other side of box says PCT SA01 KNC. Top of box says "centerfire ammunition Non-corrosive cal. 5.45x39-4,5 made to hunting specifications Keep out of reach of children. The round is FMJ w/ the headstamp of 97 & 3.

2nd-- A white box which states "made in Romainia 5,45x39mm FMJ lead core match 20 cartridges. The headstamp is 97 at the bottome and 322 at the top.

Is this non-corrosive? Anything special?-other than better than not having it at all...

Thanks!

Ulyanovsk 5.45x39mm, 70 gr bullet, lacks the airspace. Velocity is 2528 fps from a 16" barrel. 2.5" inch group @ 100 yds, from the article I read.
