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.

The rest trough an old MG-3 from 1967 and a G-3 from the early 1970's
Goes bang every time as long as it's fired from a closed bolt where there's a hammer that strikes the firing pin,
It may not always fire when used in a belt fed weapon that fires from an open bolt.
I think maybe the primers are a little too hard for use in such weapons. But like I said, the ammo is good. I'm going to keep buying it.
Who has a machine gun anyway?
