A few years ago I stumbled upon a Russian webiste that had some interesting information about ammunition. One of the more interesting bits was that their combat experience in Chechnya had demonstrated a problem with the steel cored 5.45x39mm ball ammunition. It seems that these rounds tended to bounce around inside the mostly concrete block houses and buildings during urban fighting, creating a real danger to the user. It was mentioned that a special “anti-ricochet” load was developed. I have not been able to find any more information about this and wondered if anyone else had. Could it be that they simply started using a lead cored projectile similar to the commercial offerings seen here in the US, or could it be a more “frangible” type? Any information appreciated!
