they are basically telling you that you shouldn't shoot that nasty, dirty, sealed in laquer, (so it will work in maybe 40-50 years), russian stuff that gums up the chamber and requires detailed cleaning on a much more than regular basis.
Most of the newer steel ammo like Tula use a polymer coating, which takes significantly more temperature to melt off than is generated while firing.
