Details

This 7.62 NATO ammunition was produced in the 1980s by Syarikat Malaysia Explosive Ltd, which is now known as SME Ordnance. Each lot of 540 rounds comes packaged in a reusable steel ammo can with a sturdy latch and carry handle. As military surplus, this ammo is relatively inexpensive yet highly reliable.

These cartridges fire a 146-grain bimetal jacketed bullet and produce trajectories comparable to those of M80 ball. Expect solid performance in a variety of .308 Winchester and 7.62x51mm rifles including the M-14, FAL, and a wide variety of bolt-actions.

Like all mil spec ammo, these rounds have cases with visible annealing marks, which are usually polished away on commercial ammo. These cartridges differ from more recent military production in their use of non-corrosive Berdan primers, which are very dependable but cannot be removed from the casing as easily as spent Boxer primers. Reloaders may want to choose another of BulkAmmo.com's great selection of .308/7.62 loads.

A: No, the jacketing is bi-metal, which means that there is steel in it. It will attract a magnet.
