Ammo Overview

Manufacturer - Federal
Bullets - 149 grain full metal jacket (FMJ)
Casings - Boxer-primed brass


Each case of Federal XM80 7.62x51mm ammo contains 500 rounds that have been distributed into 25 individual boxes. The XM80 is encased in a bi-metal 149 grain jacket consisting of brass and steel and has an average muzzle velocity 2750 feet per second.

Due to their jacket, full metal jacket ammunition (FMJ) leaves minimal lead residue in the rifling of a weapon’s barrel and thus helps maintain operable condition for high volume shooters. In addition, the non-corrosive boxer primers within Federal bulk 7.62x51 ammunition further enhance a weapon’s serviceability over extended periods of time. These attributes help make the XM80 ideally suited for hours of inexpensive training or target practice at a private range.

Note: Many public gun ranges place restrictions on steel jackets as they have higher penetration as opposed to their non-coated counterparts which may limit the use of this ammunition. Always be aware of what lies behind a target to reduce unintended injury or damage to property. Please check with state and local authorities in regards to any regulations governing the purchase of firearm ammunition before ordering.

A: Hello Dan! The Federal XM80 ammunition is loaded with a bi-metal jacket style projectile. As a result, that round does contain steel and will not be able to be used at any ranges that require ammunition to pass a magnet test.
