That surplus 7.62x54R ammo had a mild steel core and they were not armor piercing. Anything that specific round can go through, a pure copper and lead bullet can go through. Also, 308 Winchester and 30-06 are very similar to it ballistically.lol.
I guess I got armor piercing from my bulk ammo purchase years ago. It looks like copper, lead than steel core. Maybe I'll shoot it again with a regular copper/lead round. but it would still go through most likely
It is silver tipped painted
By the way, I've shot a 3/8 or 1/2 stainless steel plate (not sure of the exact type) with both 7.62x54R and 308 Winchester from around 30 yards and they go right through.
