Post Red Army Standard ammunition
Red Army Standard ammunition from Romania available in 7.62 x 54mmR, 7.62 x 39mm and 5.45 x 39mm FMJ ball.

Is this a new market item or has it been around awhile?

That's just a new brand name for commercial sale, from Romania. The marketing is sort of silly with backwards letters to mimic cyrillic, and having a hammer & sickle. I suppose it will inspire notions of original military quality to some buyers. If they called it "Red Zombie" they would probably sell more.

Marketing, spin, bling anything that might get a foothold in the U.S. market. The label looks similar to a beer label or the Arm & Hammer baking soda emblem.

Century International Arms Inc. is noted on a web site devoted to Red Army Standard ammunition.

Yet another new box for box collectors!

I like the way it's packaged. If Walmart sells it you can still get a decent amount even with their 3 box limit.

Alex, this one is the best I have found. As you can see, it is of the same style as the Ukrainian HotShot.
