MEN Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 147 Grain 308 Winchester (7.62X51) Ammo - 20 Rounds
The differences between 7.62 NATO and .308 Winchester are less in the powder loads than in the bullet types. Certainly the Winchester cartridge, loaded to marginally higher pressures, has a greater diversity of bullet types as it is intended mostly for hunting purposes, including large and dangerous predators. The 7.62 NATO is intended more for military use and abides by the international laws restricting the types of bullets acceptable for such purposes: full metal jacketed. This makes them well suited for accuracy if not terminal ballistics. However, that does not mean the NATO round is a wimp: Magtech’s 147 grain FMJ bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2707 feet per second with 2385 foot pounds of energy. This is perfect for DCM style matches, range training and of course, civil defense.
Distributed under the CBC Banner with other fine ammunition makers, Magtech has come into its own since its introduction in 1990. With ever widening lines of quality ammunition, the company no longer just provides range ammo but also self-defense, indoor range “green”, and of course military grade ammunition intended for use in either mil surplus or modern sporting rifles. As always, their brass cases are boxer primed and fully reloadable.
