    I don't know if the bullet jacket on the Winchester White Box is steel but it is brass cased. Don't know where you could find some in bulk. Unless you order it straight from Winchester. And Winchester's site says nothing about the material in the bullet jacket.

    AIM Surplus has some Golden Bear FMJ in a brass case for $50 for 500.

    I believe that that is brass plated steel cases.

    *edit: I have some stuff that's definitely has no steel in the bullet and the cases look 100% brass. I think it's south african. It comes in 200 round clear plastic battle packs with cardboard boxes of 25 rounds each inside. The boxes are not perfectly square.... kind of like a parallelagram.

    Hope that helps.

    UMC makes it and you can find it at Walmart.
    I have tried them in my MAK-90 and SAR rifles and they are not accurate. I can get better groups with Wolf.

    Commie guns, use commie ammo.

    Best groups out of my SVT were with Wolf and Brown Bear, vs Olympic and S&B

    I realize that this isn't really an answer to your question.

    But here goes.

    Unless you are planning to reload this ammo or shoot it in a U.S. design firearm (like the mini-30 or an AR 7.62x39 upper) then you're just wasting your money (unless you happen to find a very good deal) when you buy brass case 7.62x39. Steel case ammo won't harm AK or SKS variants in the least--they were designed for steel case ammo and have developed a reputation for extreme reliability and durability over the last half century while shooting steel case ammo.

    Cheetah from Vector Arms

    Available only in cases, and shipping can get expensive if you're far away from Utah. I don't have personal experience, but I have heard only good things.

    I DO own a case of the Vector Arms ammo and can only say great things about it. A case was $154 delivered to my door in CT....about as far from Utah you can get. It's great stuff and super clean. You'll love it. About the best deal out there right now.

    I'll second the Cheetah. I starting using it at my smiths recomendation and it is good stuff. He tells me it tightens groups up 2" or better at 100 yards, and he has played with the SKS and AK platforms a lot.

    I echo the cheetah, it groups pretty tight for my AK.
