This round features a 147 grain full metal jacket projectile. Its ballistics are just like any comparable hunting round’s, with a velocity greater than 1,800 fps at 500 yards and enough punch to theoretically put down a whitetail at the same range. An FMJ bullet’s inability to expand in its target may not make it ideal for hunting, but its affordable design and tendency to prevent rapid fouling has won it its place at the rifle range forever.
Winchester’s American-made brass is supple and consistent, able to soak up chamber pressure like no one’s business even after it has been reloaded several times. The American Legend’s propellant burns clean, as does their primer. You’ll love the condition your rifle is in after pouring this case of ammo through it!
