General Comments:

This is the standard copper-colored stuff that one sees (or at least, used to see) at gun shows, you local store, etc. Typically it comes in a green box and may or may not be corrosive (See Makarov FAQ on how to clean after shooting corrosive ammo).

The muzzle velocity shows what is typical for Makarov bullets and the standard deviation gives a clue about the quality and consistency of manufacture.
