This is your standard ball round, with a 150 grain full metal jacket projectile. That’s a solid lead core with a copper alloy gilding metal jacket, and no steel or other ferrous metals that could attract a magnet. The FMJ is not the ideal choice for hunting as it will fail to deliver terminal expansion, but a 1/3 ounce bullet flying faster than double the speed of sound ought to deter any threat to your safety even if it can’t mushroom outward in soft tissue.
This ammo is military grade with new production brass cases. The brass is visibly annealed – this indicates that it was heat-treated at the factory for superior suppleness and durability, not that it has been previously reloaded. Each round’s primer wears red sealant to protect the powder against water infiltration out in the field. Brass-cased Boxer-primed ammo like this is optimal for handloading.
Ammo Inc. of Arizona packages this 7.62x51 ammunition in plastic cases for added protection in storage. This bundle contains four 120-round cases of ammo.
