My boss came up to me today and handed me a bag of loose 7.62x39 ammo in nickel casings.
Was thinking it's probably made by Remmington but I have no idea. Seems a little too fancy for Russian and African brands.

Anyone know?

Hello Soviet... welcome... I see you are new here.

Anyway... its Russian.

Anything else we can help you out with?

It is  Silver Bear ammo made by Klimovsk in 2001.
Even though the boxes have "nickel plated cases" marked on them the importer's website has stated that the cases are plated with highly polished zinc for the last several years.

Here is a pic of  a box of 2000 production Silver Bear ammo made by Klimovsk,notice the symbol in the upper right hand corner of the box.

For more info on Russian ammo go to my web pages and click on the link for the "AK rifle ammo id" page.
Then scroll down to the Russian ammo info.

JA545, ah, that keyboard!

I noticed the keyboard too...
It looks like it was never cleaned, even after having had some sort of cola product  spilled all over it.

It is a special high tech keyboard protective coating.
Nicotine and  the results of trying to use the shop-vac that didn't have a filter in it to suck the ashes out of the fireplace.
