Details

7.62x51mm ammo was introduced in 1954 and first saw its largest use with the US Army in the M14. The M14 was the Army’s replacement for the M1 Garand and remains notable due to its being the last battle rifle issued in large quantities within the Army. Although it was eventually replaced by the M16, the M14 remains in use in smaller numbers in all branches of the military and is also used by the honor guard and color guard. A common point of confusion with the 7.62x51mm is its similarity to .308 Win and while the two are quite similar, the .308 Win is loaded to higher internal pressures and so could damage rifles not made to withstand those pressures. When in doubt, check with the manufacturer.

These particular rounds are 147 grain, making them somewhat light for the cartridge size. At this weight they’re light enough to reach higher speeds moving down-range while still heavy enough to pack a serious punch on impact. These are Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) rounds and as such do not expand on impact. In fact, target rounds like these are prone to over-penetration and can travel literally or miles after impact, making it doubly important to have a solid backstop in place. Each round delivers a muzzle velocity of 2733 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2437 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.

There are 500 target rounds in this box of ammunition, so you’re going to be well-stocked for some extended trigger time with your rifle. With this much ammo you can practice shooting standing, kneeling, and prone, and still have some left over for practicing firing from cover. This ammo is made by Magtech, a company well known for their dedication to quality. One way Magtech exercises superior quality control is through their vertically integrated factory: each and every component is made right there on-site from brass to propellants to primer. Manufacturing takes place at their longtime factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Place your order now to keep your rifle well-fed.

A: While the general design of the bullet on this Magtech ammo is usually applied for target practice and range use, the quality of the rounds would work well for any of the applications you have mentioned including hunting and defense. Depending on the size of the game being hunted, a larger caliber may be needed. Though most small to medium game would not be an issue. For best results in hunting, I would even consider a round with a specialized ballistic tip, or any generic "soft point" tip will work. A specialized tip is usually exclusive to the manufacturer of the ammo. An example of this would be Hornady Vmax. Remington, Winchester and Federal also feature their own plastic or polymer tip.
