Off the top of my head I'd say it sounds like Russian ammo made for commercial export. 1999 most likely being the year of manufacture.
Might be Wolf, and it should be non-corrosive.
Sorry I can't give a more difinitive answer, but some pics might help.

In light of better pictures, I don't think the primer is crimped. Can you use a magnet to see if the bullet is copper or not? Assuming it is copper, not bimetal or steel, I'd say it's commercial not surplus.
