Anyway, this 30-06 ammo is made by Prvi Partizan in the nation of Serbia. It is loaded with a 180 grain projectile, which is nice and heavy and accordingly high enough momentum to reliably access even a large elk’s kill switch. Prvi Partizan recorded this round’s 2,690 fps muzzle velocity with a 24” barrel. If your rifle’s barrel is the same length, then you can anticipate the 0.372 G1 ballistic coefficient that carries over 1,000 ft lbs of kinetic energy to any point within around 528 yards.
The bullet is a soft point: simple, proven, effective, and devoid of any steel that would have made it capable of attracting a magnet. The soft point’s sturdy jacket keeps it intact while its supple lead core produces broad terminal expansion. Deadly stuff if you’re a deer, hog, moose, elk, or any other popular North American game animal.
This ammo’s pressure is probably unsafe for an M1 Garand’s operating rod, but its new brass cases, sensitive noncorrosive Boxer primers and low-fouling powder are certain to treat any other 30-06 rifle like it deserves to be treated, which is to say nicely.
