Barnaul 243 WIN
Barnaul is a company with rich history manufacturing ammunition since the First World War. They're also reasonably priced!
Barnaul is the odd kid on the block using Polymer Coated Steel Cases, and more recently Zinc Coated Steel Cases. People always ask if the steel casing is going to damage your barrel, the answer is no, the steel in your barrel is much harder then the steel used in the casing. You can expect that there will not be expansion of the steel casing in the chamber resulting in the gun getting dirty quickly, but loaded with non-Corrosive powder and primers it will not lead to rapid deterioration of your equipment. The cartridges are loaded with American made tombac jacket bullets, made by Hornady Manufacturing. Tombac is a high copper content brass alloy with a little zinc.
