Silver Bear (Barnaul) 8M1 "effect" ?

Just bought a few boxes of Silver Bear (Barnaul) 7.62x39mm ,124 gr. ammo for plinking with my trusty Mini-30.The ammo is labeled "match" with "8M1 effect". This is not the same as their 123 gr. HP. I asked the vender what this "effect" was but he didn't have a clue. The bullet looks like a FMJ with a small protrusion on the tip. It also is a couple of hundred FPS slower than thier FMJ or HP. Do any of you shooters know what this 8M1 effect is? Thanks in advance, dgang

Thanks for the info, Josh. Was wondering about the "8M1 Effect" myself. Cool,5.45x39mm performance (maybe) in a 7.62x39mm.
