This 308 ammo is a budget-friendly choice for target shooting because it contains so much steel, which is a much cheaper metal than the copper that is usually used to make bullet jackets and cases. This round’s 150 grain bullet possesses a deformation-resistant bimetal jacket. It’s copper-washed on the exterior and has a lead core, but the steel which comprises the majority of a bimetal jacket does indeed make this bullet magnetic.
Steel cases drive this ammo’s price tag even lower. They are designed to cycle efficiently through any kind of rifle, and they are also coated with low-friction and corrosion-resistant polymer. Steel’s main shortcoming? It doesn’t have the ability to contract back to its original dimensions following ignition, which makes reloading a steel case so difficult that it’s usually best not to bother trying!
