This round’s 55 grain FMJ bullet features an all-copper jacket around a dense lead core. There is no steel in there, so it will not attract a magnet. Loaded to a 3,250 fps muzzle velocity, this round’s bullet will offer ballistics that are pretty much apples-to-apples with our Armed Forces’ M193 ball ammo. This round’s non-expanding FMJ bullet is less than ideal for self-defense, but you’d certainly rather have it on your side than nothing at all during a dangerous altercation.
This round’s case is made of pure brass, and is accordingly a suitable choice for handloading. Better yet, this round is outfitted with a Boxer primer rather than a Berdan, so the case has the single, central flash hole that handloading enthusiasts like. Wolf’s propellant is clean burning, which alongside a non-corrosive primer keeps a rifle happier in between cleanings.
