This cartridge’s 147 grain FMJ projectile is designed to shoot clean and straight. Its jacket has a cannelure to prevent the bullet from shifting out of its seating during recoil, and the sleek profile and balanced weight it needs to hug a level trajectory. One word of caution with this bullet, though: Its jacket does contain steel. That doesn’t impact its ballistics – heck, it may even help as it prevents deformation – but it does make this ammo magnetic.
Armscor loads this particular 7.62x51 ammo at their headquarters in the Philippines. They gave it their reloadable brass cases, which are brand new and only discolored because they were annealed without getting buffed up afterward, as well as non-corrosive Boxer primers.
