Details

This XM118 ammo is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) and is designed for very accurate, very long range shots out of your 7.62x51mm chambered rifle.

This XM118 ammo comes loose packed in 500 round cases and is considered military seconds. This ammo is still very accurate and reliable. Military specifications are very stringent and if just a few rounds out of a huge batch fail specifications, then entire lot is sold to the commercial market as seconds. This fact presents an awesome deal to avid long-range match shooters getting to benefit from the huge production scale of our military which helps reduce the cost as well as getting to ride on the coat tails of our military's R&D expenditures.

Additionally, this brass is manufactured on mil-spec production lines which require evidence of the annealing process be left on the brass near the neck of the casing often referred to as the iris. This is the darker residue that is visually noticeable around the case neck. Both commercial and mil-spec brass undergoes this same annealing process which make the brass stronger and less brittle. The annealing process essentially runs the brass through a series of flames which heat the brass having the affect of re-strengthening it in its final shape. Commercial brass is then re-cleaned after it has been annealed to make it cosmetically more appealing for the commercial market. Military requirements on the other hand place a larger emphasis on the structural integrity of the casing so they require that evidence that the brass has been annealed remain on the brass.

Try a case today to take home the next trophy at your local range.

This ammo is brass-cased, boxer primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable.

A: Hello Charles, The Lake City Long Range and Match brass does not use a crimped primer in their rounds.

A: The Ballistic Coefficient will change depending on the muzzle velocity the round achieves. A BC of .505 @ 2800 fps and above, a BC of .496 between 2800 and 1800 fps, and a BC of .485 @ 1800 fps and below

A: Hey Jeff, you should be good to go with 7.62x51mm in your Sig Sauer 716. This, like most Federal FMJ ammo, is a great choice if you're looking for a top of the line range round. Thanks for the questions and have fun at the range!

A: This Lake City 7.62x51mm (308 Win) ammunition is loaded with non corrosive components. The brass is boxer primed which may be saved for the reloading process.

A: This Federal 7.62x51 ammo will work well in your rifle chambered for either 308 or 7.62x51. Since this ammo is usually loaded to a lower pressure than 308, it will safely fire in a 308 rifle. This is similar to the 223/5.56 relationship. Additionally, it is best to avoid shooting 308 ammo in a rifle designated for 7.62x51.
