Steel Jacket???

Guy I work with said he bought some Tul Ammo and it had a grey case and bullet. I've never seen this, Ive heard of steel jacketed ammo with a thin copper wash over it but not a plain steel jacket. He did the magnet test and it was steel and then he melted out the lead and its a pretty thick steel jacket. Anyone seen these? Ive shot some Tul Ammo and it was grey case with copper bullet.

Its pretty much the standard Russian ammo from the Tula arsenal, standard bi-metal bullet jackets made from a soft steel, not significantly different from Wolf or the other Ruskie brands.

Sounds like Tula to me... I could have told ya all that if you asked here first, but seriously... I only ran Tula in my AK (which I sold to get an AR), Ill run xtream copper washed lead (copper plated) *or* FMJ with brass case in my AR for relibility.

Tula AK and "real bullets" for AR is the widely accepted policy...

These bullets don't have the copper wash...Like I said, I've seen or heard of steel jacket with the copper wash but never seen or heard of them with just a plain steel jacket.
