An M80 cartridge has an elemental 147 grain FMJ projectile: lead core, gilding metal jacket that ends in a sharp, aerodynamic tip, and a cannelure which keeps the bullet securely seated even after recoil energy has jolted the magazine backward. Armscor’s bullet is magnetic. That doesn’t impact its in-flight or terminal ballistics, but you musn’t expect to fire this ammo where magnetic bullets are barred.
Armscor’s reloadable shell casing is nonmagnetic, however. It is made of pure brass, drawn, tapered and cut by the ISO 9001 certified company to precise dimensions. You can see where these rounds’ military-grade brass cases have been heat-treated, which helps their necks to expand correctly during ignition. Armscor loads non-corrosive Boxer primers, so you don’t have to worry about your rifle rusting up without special cleaning.
7.62x51 ammunition is compatible with 308 Win firearms!
