Sellier & Bellot - Soft Point - 139 Grain 7x57 Mauser Ammo - 400 Rounds
The Spanish adopted 7mm Mauser ammunition in 1893 for their new rifles of the same year. It is a first generation smokeless powder round that has since been adopted by other nations as well as serving as a sporting round known also as the .275 Rigby round. With appropriate bullet types, the caliber has seen service in battle - it gave US soldiers quite the bother in the Spanish American War - as well as on Safari hunts. Ballistically speaking, according to experts, it is the perfect balance between ballistic stability and performance. While it has been superseded by more modern calibers, it remains a popular choice for collectors of older firearms. The 139 grain soft point bullet by Sellier & Bellot leaves the muzzle at 2651 feet per second with 2170 foot pounds of energy. It is an established sporting bullet suitable for game hunting on any continent. This 400 round case is a good start for keeping the old vet or sporter active into another century.
Sellier & Bellot has crested the wave of every technological development in munitions design and manufacture since the 1820’s. From muzzle loading to the modern exploration of the caseless round, S&B has provided consumers with dependable performance no matter what the application. As always, their reloadable cases provide additional value.
