View Full Version : Tell me about some cheap non-magnetic .223 options please...

I called my range to fully understand what they disallow and he said just run a magnet over it and that will determine if you can use it or not. Any recommendations on some cheap Russian ammo that is non-magnetic?

Are these safe to use for the range I go to (which prohibits steel/magnetic bullets?)

Silver Bear 55gr FMJ (http://www.jgsales.com/product_info.php/p/223-silver-bear-55gr-fmj%2C-500-round-cases-/products_id/1792), 500 round cases.

Thank you

PMC Bronze is made in South Korea, non magnetic, boxer primed, reloadable brass cased ammo for $6.25 a box at the last gun show. Pretty hard to be beat fore hoser ammo.

Silvebear will not work.

I use Hornady TAP practice (not russian, sorry)...its the only ammo i run. Safe for the ranges, cheap on the wallet.

It's hard to find Russian ammo that is non-magnetic (minus a few Wolf Gold variants).

Best is to go for PMC. It's cheap and easily available.
