Ok kinda silly.. Ive always shot the surpluss Mosan ammo (russian or check) with the tip painted silver..I know a magnet will pick up the bullet so it must have some steal in it. But only shot soda cans and paper so never though about it. Today at the range they had a few old round steal targets...junk plates..so I shot one of them a few times... they appeard to be /2 or 3/4 inch thick but the bullett went right through it leaveing a clean hole that had an exit type hole..metal sticking out on BOTH sides... the plate was hanging so it swong freely...no resistance. Kinda surprised me..(Shot at 50 yards). Seems like this ammo would do a number on a car body or even body armor... Anyone know anything about this stuff.?
