Details

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.

Product Question and Answer

Q: I have used the 308, 150 grain and the 7.62x51, 168 grain in my M1A. Both cycled just fine and I'm not experienced enough to notice any significant difference. Is there any reason I shouldn't use the 175 grain?

Posted On: 3/20/13 By: YL

A: I would not have any hesitation with the 175 grain with your rifle. If you are shooting at a moderate distance you will notice little to no differences. At longer distances, you may find yourself adjusting your sights to compensate for the heavier weight compared to the 150 grain. For any round over 175 grain, I would consider a rifle with a 1:10 twist rate.
Q: what is the date this ammo was made?

Posted On: 10/8/12 By: dw

A: This Lake City ammunition was manufactured within the last two calendar years. While exact dates of each case is not recorded for quick reference, all of our products are fresh from the manufacturer and in great condition. Any surplus stock that has been manufactured prior to the last few years will be indicated in the product description. One example of this is our Bulgarian surplus ammo from the 1970s.
Q: I have an AR-10 308, can I shoot this ammo with confidence in my AR-10?

Posted On: 7/12/12 By: bill

A: Rifles that are chambered for 308 will safely fire the 7.62x51mm round. This will not be true for 308 in a 7.62 rifle. It is important to verify which rifle you have, as well as the type of ammo you will be firing.
Q: Can I shoot this ammo with a 308 Remington 700 heavy barrell rifle?

Posted On: 6/27/12 By: Dan

A: Yes, 7.62x51mm ammo will safely fire in a 308 chambered rifle. While these two cartridges appear similar, 308 Win ammo is loaded to a higher pressure and should not be fired in a 7.62x51mm chambered rifle.

Sierra Hotel Ammo! Review by Mark

Awe inspiring quality. Was able to put 5 rounds in a 3/4" cloverleaf @ 100 yards, no flyers. Consistantly hit a 12" plate @ 1000 yard. All with a non-match grade barrel bolt gun. Got 2 sub-lots in my order, ALL the ammo chronographed within 10 FPS! Same lot Federal Gold Medal has never run that close, for me, at least. BTW-Federal operates the LCAAP. (Posted on 5/18/14)

I bought this to shoot out of a GA Precision Harbinger .308. This is 1/2 MOA or better stuff. I am sure the Rifle and the shooter had a little to do with it as well. I shot out to 300 yrds and it still holds at 1/2 MOA or better. Had a couple of flyers but that was my fault. This wil tide me over till I can get my hands on a decent score of Varget and match Primers. (Posted on 1/31/14)

tell you what ,picked thru.most of these rnds will compete with a federal match ,easily . and anyone that shoots a lot with a battle rifle platform such as an m1a ,fn-fal , hk91 , etc. you will be pleasantly surprised how well this ammo holds groups at 200,400,600 and even a grand .if picked and gauged .the work is well worth the effort in results . and we all know what these rnds are for .if they have em when i make my order i will be definetly ordering 2.5k of em . 500 for final zeroing at a min of 400yds . this particular bullit is a jarhead/army fav along with fed match and has been for decades .for damn good reasons .accuracy & stopping power .

I finally was able to shoot some of this ammo. It works just fine. I am able to get 1/2-inch groups at 200-yards. That is plenty accurate for me. I am using a Remington 700 Target Tactical, 26-inch barrel. (Posted on 5/27/13)

I recently acquired this ammo from Lucky Gunner. Unfortunately the courier misplaced the original order (it eventually showed up, long story) and without hesitation, LG sent me a replacement order free of charge even though it was not their fault. Incredible! I did eventually get my original order and made things right with Lucky Gunner as they went out of their way to make things right for me. They have my busy in the long run!

I was shooting Federal GMM through my Tikka when I saw this on the website. It shot extremely well, didn't even require re-zeroing, and held sub-minute groups. It's also much less expensive than the Federal ammo. I'd certainly recommend this ammunition to anyone looking for a high performance round without crippling your wallet. (Posted on 11/26/12)

Another great luckygunner deal. This ammo has produced great half minute groups out of a 20" Shilen select match barreled 700, out to 600. Cant beat it with GMM or anything else factory loaded for accuracy or price. Thanks again luckygunner. (Posted on 9/7/12)

I compared this 118LR to GMM 168grn. There's a big difference and those that witnessed,are believers such as myself. At 100 yrds,all my 118's were touching. 2 in the same hole. GMM were half inch apart. This is threw an M24,5R 700 action-Supprressed. I refuse to buy GMM when I can get the real deal. (Posted on 8/20/12)
