I was looking for some AP ammo in 7.62x54r and came across some on www.ammunitionstore.com

Mfg: Southern Ammunition
Caliber: 7.62x54r
Bullet Type: 147 gr. copper jacket, Armor piercing core
Primer: Berdan, corrosive
Box Quan: 20 rounds
Item # A039

I looks to be green tip. Is this truely AP? I was looking up 7.62x39 AP ammo but it appears most folks label any steel core as AP. I read that it is only AP if it has a hardened steel core. Is this correct?

Considering the pricing @ $14.95/20 it darn sure better be armor piercing!

It appears to be manufactured domestically, hard to tell what exactly they used for a core but Ammunitionstore lists it as AP and all their milsurp steel core as just plain old steel core. Might be fun, but what kind of armor targets could a fella find that the regular steel core wouldn't take care of?
