This 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition was made in Ethiopia for implementation in American-made M14 rifles. A ball round, its 145 grain projectile is the plain Jane variety with a lead core and a full metal jacket that improves its ability to feed, prevent bore fouling, and penetrate a target. This round features a brass casing fitted with a corrosive Berdan primer. That latter aspect means this round is neither ideal for handloading nor tucking away in your fallout shelter in preparation for a rainy day.
This ammunition comes in a steel 30 Cal ammo can. In spite of it having been manufactured in the 70s or 80s, it’s still in remarkably good condition and repels the elements well. If you’ve an old mil-surp rifle you’ll find this interesting ammo works splendidly in it -- you may fire it in your 308 as well!
