Magtech - Full Metal Coat - 150 Grain 308 Winchester Ammo - 500 Rounds
The .308 Winchester rifle round was developed from a passing interest from the US military to develop a shorter cased .30 caliber rifle round as there were concerns of the larger .30-06operating reliably out of semi and full automatic rifles. While improved designs (from gun gurus Browning and Garand) reduced the priority of such a search, munitions makers were not averse to the idea of developing an alternative. And the efforts ultimately paid off: two years after the .308 was introduced in 1952 NATO adopted the 7.62x51 – physically identical to the .308 and capable of being fired in either chambers and vice versa. The 150 grain full metal jacket bullet by Magtech has a muzzle velocity of 2820 feet per second with 2649 foot pounds of energy. This 500 round case lot is ideal for range training, target shooting and competitions.
Magtech’s name has been a growing presence on the American sport shooting world since 1990 thanks to its reliability and economy of cost. Shooters also appreciate the ability to reload the company’s brass boxer primed cases for furthering their bang to buck ratio. Buying in case quantities further provides economic relief and the ideal way to invest in precious metals.
