Testing brush as a barrier against 5.45mm ammo (VIDEO)

It looks like Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern in getting in on the “let’s shoot stuff to see if it works” game.

In the above short, Kalash’s Izhevsk-based technical advisor, Vladimir Onokoy, runs an AK74 to see if 5x45x39mm will work its way through a handful of what looks like Russian kale. Drilling with 7N6 steel core (ah, the memories…) he soon visits keyhole city.

As a control, he repeats the test with an AK-104 in 7.62x39mm. Same result, only with a smaller keychain.
