This cartridge is loaded with a 147 grain full metal jacket projectile. That’s as economical as semi-auto rifle bullets come, but Armscor’s ISO 9001 certified factory does crank out FMJs with consistent weights and dimensions to promote steady performance. A bullet like this isn’t going to expand inside of your quarry, so it’s not what you want for whitetail.
Armscor’s Philippine factory produces the same kinds of components we load here in America: reloadable brass cases, non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning powder. This round’s explodey bits give its projectile a 2,600 fps muzzle velocity, which is just 100 fps slower than the M80 ball ammo you may already be accustomed to firing.
