Details

This 7.62x51mm ammo was produced at the legendary Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. This 7.62 NATO ammo is loaded to the M80 NATO designation and is produced on the same production lines used to supply the US military. As a result, this ammo isn't polished like traditional commercially available ammunition, and the discoloration from the annealing process provides proof that ammunition was manufactured properly.

This ammo is loose-packed in a bulk 500 round box. Each 149 grain FMJ projectile is loaded into a boxer-primed brass case and is reloadable. This ammo will attract a magnet, so make sure to check out your range rules before buying.

This overrun ammo from Lake City is some of the best on the market, so make sure to buy some in bulk while it is available!

A: Hi Michael. This is factory fresh, first load brass. The military rounds are not allowed a final polish that would make them shine like the commercial rounds. This is because the military requires that the brass show the annealing ring at the top to guarantee that the rounds have been properly heat-treated.

A: Hi Jeremy! Thanks! Clamped into a test vise with a soft trigger activating mechanism, this ammo should yield 1 MOA (1" groups at 100 yards). A standing or prone, breathing human using iron sights . . . your results may vary :)

A: This ammo will work very well in that SCAR. These cartridges are the very same that the mil-spec issued version runs.

A: Yes. Through a semi-automatic rifle this is fine. One consideration though. Since the 7.62x51 operates at a slightly lower pressure, some rifles do not cycle when using the 7.62 round. This is by no means common, but does occur often enough to mention.

Posted On: 11/17/2018 By: Can I use this ammo in a Springfield M14

A: These M80 149 gr FMJ rounds are loaded to milspec 7.62x51 specifications and should be safe to fire in any rifle chambered in the same caliber.

A: Hi There, This ammo is loaded to the M80 NATO designation and is produced on the same production lines used to supply the US military .Each 149 grain FMJ projectile is lead core with a bi-metal jacket and loaded into a boxer-primed brass case. This ammo will attract a magnet, so make sure to check out your range rules before buying.

A: The bullet used in this ammo has a bi metal jacket that is made with several very thin layers of copper and steel sandwiched together and then wrapped around the lead core.
