Non magnetic 7.62x39 to comply with range rules

Recommended Posts

The one range I belong too recently started magnet testing ammo looking for steel cores. As we all know the x39 bimetallic jacket isn't magnet friendly. I'm having a hard time sorting through things via the Google and am having a hard time coming up with a clear picture. I need to find out what 762x39 is not magnetic for when I do want to shoot this thing at the indoor range. If anyone else has hit this restriction what are you guys using?

One local club has non-steel core restriction for a long time, mainly because it would punch through steel plate overhead the length of range, destroying them. Most corrosive surplus is steel core, but I believe that Yugo wasn't. Also any boxer primer isn't too. It's more expensive but I'm done with blowing through mags for gigles and actually try to hit things with my reloaded ammo. It sucks to pay more for ammo, but recent manufacture is usually more accurate and non-corrosive.

RAS copper-jacket 7.62 is steel-cased but the projectile itself is non-magnetic. That would be your lowest-cost option ($0.36/rd shipped). Their M67-style 7.62 is also non-magnetic but for that price you're probably better off with PPU.
