This ammunition intentionally does not cycle the action,
for the ultimate in quiet shooting.  Each round must be manually ejected.


Imagine a situation (hunting, combat or whatnot) where you are running a suppressed
gas operated firearm (not necessarily an AK and 5.45x39mm) and for whatever reason
you find yourself in an unexpected situation where have to make one or several shots
that have to be as quiet as possible not to compromise your presence or location.
Ideally, you will have a dedicated gun for such a shot like an integrally suppressed.
300 Blackout bolt action rifle sending subsonic 220-grain pills. But in reality, you
can’t carry a bunch of guns for every possible scenario. So in the described situation,
I think having a 10 or 20 round magazine with such subsonic ammunition that won’t cycle
the action is actually a benefit. Such ammunition will allow you not only to shoot quietly
because it is subsonic but it will also eliminate the sound generated by the reciprocating
parts making it as quiet of a gas gun as possible.

The beauty of such concept is that you are turning your gas operated firearm into basically
a straight pull bolt action rifle by simply using a different ammunition. A simple magazine
change will make your weapon suitable for a completely different task. Ideally, for the mentioned
task you would need an adjustable gas block with a shut off setting. But then again, not every gun
has an adjustable gas block and this looks to be a solution for such firearms.
