Red Army Standard is releasing a new ammunition line this year with cost in mind: the White Box line. The company has established itself over the past decade as one of the better options of ComBloc-style ammunition on the civilian market versus other sources of Russian military surplus ammunition.

Imported through Century Arms, the Red Box line of ammunition from Red Army Standard has been a favorite for Kalashnikov enthusiasts in the U.S. due to the loading and features of the ammunition. Many are weary with surplus com-bloc ammunition due to the corrosive nature and lower quality typically encountered, which results in more wear and cleaning needed. The Red Box ammunition introduced cartridges that are made to the same specifications as the Russian style military surplus with lacquer-coated steel cases.

However, the Red Army Standard ammunition is designed to provide a more consistent bullet weight and powder load, resulting in greater accuracy potential. Most importantly, Red Army Standard is non-corrosive, meaning that far less consideration is needed in cleaning after using it. The new White Box line builds off the same quality of the Red Box line, but at a lower cost without compromising the core benefits over military surplus ammunition.

The ammunition in this new line will come in multiple calibers to include 7.62x39 mm, 7.62x54 mm R, 9 mm Luger, .45 ACP, .223  Rem., and .308 Win. The ammunition is Russian-manufactured polymer steel cased non-corrosive made similarly to the Red Box line. This line of ammunition will be a good choice for enthusiasts who are looking for cheap target-shooting ammunition without a premium.
