Ammo Overview

Quantity - 20 rounds per box, 25 boxes per case
Manufacturer - Colt by Silver Bear
Bullets - 168 grain full metal jacket boat-tail (FMJ-BT)
Casings - Berdan-primed zinc-plated steel


This 308 Win cartridge by Colt features a 168 grain bullet, a common weight for the caliber. Its boat tail design conveys quite a few attractive benefits, as its shape stabilizes its flight for improved accuracy, helps it to resist cross winds while in flight, and makes the cartridge’s assembly easier so it’s less likely to incur nicks and scratches in the factory that would have otherwise negatively affected its performance. Its full metal jacket is great for lengthy shooting sessions, which you’ll be entitled to with 500 to go through, as it will prevent accuracy harming bore fouling as the result of lead residue accumulation.

This cartridge is made in Russia, and it has a steel casing. Steel casings are not suitable for reloading, but as they don’t require costly copper for their production they represent a significant price advantage. The casing sports zinc plating, which helps it to feed and eject reliably. All in all, this is an attractive package for anyone with an AR-15 looking forward shooting exactly 24 pounds of lead during their next shooting session!

A: Hello Sami, These 168gr. FMJ rounds by Colt in .308 do have a lead core, but they sometimes have a bi-metal jacket so they will attract a magnet. For non-magnetic rounds, I would suggest a brass cased round.
