Default Non-Magnetic 7.62 x39

In the RANGE AMMO price ($5-$7 per box ), I hear that YUGO (corrosive) and WOLF YELLOW BOX (non-Corrosive), are BOTH non-magnetic..

Question 1: did I hear correctly ?

Question 2: any other non-magnetic 7.62 x39

Thanks all!

Might be a stupid question but what effect does magnetism have on ammo/guns???

If it is magnetic then it means a steel core or bi-metal. A lot of ranges don't allow those because they can ruin metal target, target holders, or backdrops.

It's crap, but it's the rules at most ranges

Gotcha, thanks for the explanation. Sorry I don't have an answer to your question.

Many ranges are operating under the premis that all bullets that are attracted to a magnet are steel. That is absolutely incorrect. A "bi-metal" jacket is one that is comprised of Copper and Nickle (also called Cupro-Nickle). Bi-metal jacketed bullets are attracted to a magnet but have no steel in them. The Winchester 7.62 X 51 (308) 147 gr FMJ ammo is attracted to a magnet but is a cupro-nickle jacketed lead core convential bullet. Many range operators are overly cautious (can't blame them) and think they know more than they do.

Default 7.62x39 ammo

The Yugo ammo is corrosive. Clean right after shooting. All Wolf is Bi-Metal, except the Wolf "Gold" (not yellow). Wolf "Gold" is not offered in the 7.62x39. They have NATO 7.62x54

Winchester,Remington,Federal,Prvi Partizan,Hornady and Yugoslavian Surplus are about your only options for non-magnetic X39 ammo unless you reload.

The Yugo is the only non magnetic bulk ammo available,all the others I mentioned are sold in 20 rd. boxes the Prvi is the cheapest usually less that $10 per 20 and it's reloadable as well. Hornady sells there X39 SST steel case ammo in 50 rd. boxes for about $32 on average.

All your Russian/Chinese X39 ammo will have a bi-metal steel jacketed bullet with a gliding copper jacket. Most of the Russian ammo will have lead core bullet the Chinese can have either lead or mild steel core. The Wolf Yellow box ammo you mentioned is no longer mfg. but you run into a box or two ever so often.
