Almost all Commie produced AK ammo is steel cased and has a steel jacketed bullet, usually copper or brass plated to ease bbl wear and prevent rusting. The cases are usually lacquered to prevent rust, Wolf now uses a thin plastic coating. Most Russian ammo of all types is steel case/jacket as well.

Brass is expensive, the Yugo is the only commonly available "conventional" AK ammo out there (brass case and jacket).
