This cartridge is an M80, and thus has the 147 grain projectile which delivers a faster muzzle velocity than the M118LR sniping round. This bullet doesn’t expand during penetration, as its economical full metal jacket specializes instead on improving ease of feeding and reducing the rate of bore fouling.
A cursory inspection of this round will reveal that its brass shell casing is annealed well. Depend on it to reliably expand to seal the chamber, even after you have reloaded it several times. Magtech’s non-corrosive primer and clean burning propellant make this modern cartridge both satisfying to shoot and safe to store long-term.
