This round’s bullet is a 196 grain full metal jacket. It has no polymer tip, soft point or any other feature that enables terminal expansion, so it’s not your best friend when you only want to hunt medium game. But the FMJ is steel-free, so it is your best friend if you’re going target shooting at a range which no-nos magnetic ammo. The FMJ’s sleek frontal profile and tapered base enhance its G1 ballistic coefficient to 0.509 (or G7 0.256, since it has a boat tail), so you can reasonably expect each shot’s trajectory to stay supersonic until just beyond 1,100 yards. Not too shabby at all!
Sellier & Bellot loaded this range ammo in the Czech Republic with never-before-fired reloadable brass cases, conventional noncorrosive Boxer primers, and powder that won’t quickly blacken the interior of your favorite 8mm Mauser rifle.
