Barnaul 5.56x45mm

Hi guys,

I have the 5.56x45mm cartridge made by Barnaul shown in the photos below. Do you by any chance have any further information regarding this round?

Thank you

Not sure for the bullet you have there but these cases were for a military export contract to Asia.

Some of these (likely overrun) ended up with normal FMJ/SP loads…

To be sure you would need to pull the bullet.

Thank you!

I have not seen this type of primer crimp style on Russian ammunition before. Reminds me of the one used on 5.56x45mm M-855-A1 cartridges, which is unique in of itself…

This is far fetched to be honest.
And Russia also has several types of primer crimps including semi-circular ones.
