Compare this 175 Grain Hollow-Point Boat Tail (HP-BT) ammunition from Lake City to some other 308 Ammo |


This XM118 ammo is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) and is designed for very accurate, very long range shots out of your 7.62x51mm chambered rifle.

This XM118 ammo comes loose packed in 500 round cases and is considered military seconds. This ammo is still very accurate and reliable. Military specifications are very stringent and if just a few rounds out of a huge batch fail specifications, then entire lot is sold to the commercial market as seconds. This fact presents an awesome deal to avid long-range match shooters getting to benefit from the huge production scale of our military which helps reduce the cost as well as getting to ride on the coat tails of our military's R&D expenditures.

Additionally, this brass is manufactured on mil-spec production lines which require evidence of the annealing process be left on the brass near the neck of the casing often referred to as the iris. This is the darker residue that is visually noticeable around the case neck. Both commercial and mil-spec brass undergoes this same annealing process which make the brass stronger and less brittle. The annealing process essentially runs the brass through a series of flames which heat the brass having the affect of re-strengthening it in its final shape. Commercial brass is then re-cleaned after it has been annealed to make it cosmetically more appealing for the commercial market. Military requirements on the other hand place a larger emphasis on the structural integrity of the casing so they require that evidence that the brass has been annealed remain on the brass.

Try a case today to take home the next trophy at your local range.

This ammo is brass-cased, boxer primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable.

Customer Reviews

As good as my handloads. Review by Carl
Have shot three different lots of XM118LR with sub-MOA groups out of my Savage 10PC. It shoots as well or better than Federal GMM 175gr SMK at a lower price point. Not as pretty to look at, but so what. In fact, my hand loading attempts to duplicate this load come very close, but never better (so far.)

If you do not handload, shoot greater than 600 yards, have a rifle worthy of sub-MOA groups, then this round will serve you well. (Posted on 4/25/15)
Good Stuff Review by Darcon
Sub MOA at 100, just a little more than 1 MOA @ 200 with Howa 1500 Axiom. Charge fires smoothly. Groups as tight as many hand loads. (Posted on 6/12/14)
Exelent quality and good value. Review by Glen
Consistant performance from both my Remington 700 and Armalite AR10. Sub MOA groups from both rifles. (Posted on 1/27/14)
