As 7.62x51, this ammunition is just as fit for NATO-spec weapons as it is American hunting rifles chambered for 308 Win. Each cartridge is armed with the basic full metal jacket bullet which any automatic or semi-automatic rifle is designed to efficiently feed and fire. At 147 grains this round’s bullet will deliver essentially the same in-flight ballistics as the U.S. Army’s time-tested M80 ball. And while the FMJ bullet may not be designed for terminal expansion, its velocity and energy are both sufficient to quickly subdue any human-sized threat to your safety.
Sellier & Bellot’s 7.62x51 ammunition hails from the Czech Republic, where it is loaded with three important performance-enhancing components: non-corrosive Boxer primers to prevent rusting, new brass cases for clean ignition and reloadability, and steel-free bullets for compliance at ranges which prohibit magnetic projectiles. This ammo’s primers are also sealed for greater longevity during storage.
