Magtech - Full Metal Jacket - 147 Grain 308 Winchester Ammo - 50 Rounds
Introduced as the hunting round .308 Winchester in 1952 and then adopted two years later as the 7.62x51 by NATO, this cartridge has become one of the most prolific .30 cal rifle rounds in the world. Used by militaries and sportsmen on virtually every continent, the shorter case means less weight to carry in additional magazines but better propellants meant similar performance to the older and longer .30-06 Springfield. The M80 cartridge was, for a time, the standard issue NATO round with typically a faster initial muzzle speed within the first 500 yards. The 147 grain full metal jacket bullet by Magtech has a muzzle velocity of 2733 feet per second with 2437 foot pounds of energy. This is a target and range training round suitable for competitive uses in use in all military style rifles chambered in 7.62x51.
Magtech’s reputation as a quality rifle ammunition provider began in 1990 with the offering of popular calibers at affordable pricing of range and training ammunition. Since then the company has provided more and more options in specialized ammo including sporting and defense, as well as premium competitive cartridges. As always, brass cases are boxer primed and fully reloadable.
