This 7.62 NATO ammunition from the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri is authentic mil spec ammo suitable for target shooting with M-14s, FALs, Remington 700s, and other rifles chambered in both 7.62 NATO and .308 Winchester. These cartridges follow the M80 standard. Mil spec ammo in this caliber is typically slightly less "hot" than hunting loads and makes for more pleasant shooting at the range!
Each cartridge in this bulk case of 500 fires a 149 grain full metal jacket bullet at a muzzle velocity of 2,790 feet per second. This results in good medium to long range performance and an average level of felt recoil.
Lake City ammo is made on the same production lines that supply the US military. It is typically excess production from government orders; many shooters favor LC ammo due to its military origin and high production quality. This ammo uses non corrosive Boxer primers. The reloadable brass cases are annealed (heat treated) for strength; the resulting discoloration of the brass is typically polished away on commercial cases. However, military ammo retains these markings as proof that the round has been constructed properly.

Bought 1000 rounds on sale and after shooting about 300 rounds I immediately ordered another 1000. Repeatable groups and no misfires or jams in my LAR-8. Lake City knows what they're doing. :) Note that this is not polished brass so you know it has been properly annealed, but it will be a pain to reload if you go that route (sealed primer pockets). You can dump 350 rounds in a .30 cal ammo can which is just right for storage IMO. Lucky Gunner got it to me fast as well. Overall I'm quite pleased.
Cannot beat these deals
Purchased small quantities from numerous sources for CMP range work. Finally settled on the M80-LC. Amazing for the price. Very consistent, groups well, no feed issues, no misfires. Awaiting delivery of 1000 rnds of 5.56. Back to the range when the weather clears. I will be buying more.
Pleasantly Surprised at 1000yards
Ran this ammo on my AR10 during a recent PRS long range precision rifle competition (my first time actually). Between my skills (marginal), rifle setup (better than me) and AMMO (also better than me) then I was able to get 5 out of 8 targets at 100 yards. Will be running this in my long range competitions the rest of the Summer. No use spending twice the price until the shooter becomes the limiting factor (will be awhile).
i bought 2 cases went through one case in both M1As no misfires no jams works great
i live in Connecticut a state of unfair gun laws
they were very fast sending out the order and the time from shipping to when i received the package was very short
i hand load most of my ammo and at the cost i paid for two cases its not that much higher the if i hand load and its very accurate at 300 yards
i will by buying more
Outstanding ammo for the price
Received my first case 30 days ago. Great ammo for ringing steel at medium to long range. Consistently 1.25 to 1.50 MOA. Don't hesitate to buy this lot. I am ordering my 2nd case tonight.
Bought 500 rounds of this stuff and ran 200 through my new Springfield M1A. Accurate and reliable. No problems. Highly recommend it . Lucky Gunners service and shipping was excellent. Also highly recommended.
This ammunition doesn't disappoint. It works great in my sig 716 and is just as accurate as any normal factory ammunition. Its lake city and the stuff I got was only a couple years old ( based on brass head stamps). Sure it comes all piled in a bag and is dingy (it is surplus afterall), but when its accurate, works flawlessly, leaves you quality reloadable brass, and is a great price you can't pass this up. Worth noting that even though it shipped loose in a bag in a box it arrived undamaged.
had to buy another one had so much fun two days at the shooting range went thru 400 rounds , the ammo shot flawlessly thru my m1a and my fr8, thank you Lucky Gunner for making it possible with your great prices , fast shipping , Cant go wrong military ammo great quality, great brass to reload.
great ammo. 7.62x51 milled lc brass .
This stuff is great, perfect for my m1a . I will be buying another one very soon . thank you very much, this is milled brass boxer primed . packaging was very good, and fast shipping . Thanks Lucky Gunner .
Very good range ammo
My CZ 550 FSI .308 really shoots this ammo well. It's got a 20" 1:12 barrel and that wonderful CZ set trigger. I was particularly impressed with the consistency I got with this ammo, even better than other ammo that cost a lot more. Lucky Gunner's shipping was smooth. Thanks!
Great brass and price
200 rounds through my AR10 effortlessly. I love current brass for 52 cents and I even like the looks of it, but you should see the casings after corn cob in the cleaner. It's going to make pretty reloads. I'll probably buy another box at some point to keep a great rotating supply.
My wife and I both shoot 308's, her's is a LR-308 and mine is a PTR-91.
We shoot long range with the 308's and my wife will hit the steel targets at 500 yards and averaging 19 hits per 20 rounds shot. The targets are 8x11 and she shoots better than I do lol.
Never have had any problems with around 2,000 round fired out of both of them.
good value for good quality 7.62x51
I decided to go with Lake City ammo after some disappointing results with some Winchester bulk ammo. This ammo isn't pretty to look at (edit: military grade annealing process not polished bright like consumer ammo), but functioned flawlessly in every rifle I tried, with very good accuracy. For the price I will buy again!
