For starters, this is specifically not 7.62x51 ammunition, and it will not work in a 308 Win rifle. The 7.62x54r is a cartridge of Russian origin, and it’s most commonly purchased for the Mosin–Nagant rifle (affectionately known as the “nugget”). Sorry if you already know all this, but you don’t want a rookie to order the wrong kind of ammo for his gun, either!
This ammunition is not made in Russia. Prvi Partizan is a Serbian company, and unlike a Russian manufacturer they do not load magnetic projectiles. This round’s 182 grain full metal jacket bullet has a lead core and a copper alloy jacket. It won’t attract a magnet, but a ball cartridge’s FMJ will not expand when it strikes game or a threat, either.
This ammunition is not Boxer-primed. If you don’t know the difference between Boxer and Berdan primers, you’re still safe to go ahead firing this non-corrosive ammunition. But if you care about centerfire primers because you handload, just take care that this round’s case has two flash holes instead of the usual one.
