7.62x51mm was created in the early 1950s and put into service in 1954 for the purpose of creating a standardized rifle round for NATO. In the U.S. it was used for the M14 and M60 up until the M16, which is chambered in 5.56 NATO, replaced the M14. However the round still sees significant use in the U.S. military in various sniper rifles as well as in some machine guns such as the M240. There is some confusion because the 7.62x51mm is quite similar to the .308 Win, but even though SAAMI lists the two rounds as interchangeable, the .308 Win is loaded to a higher pressure and could do damage to guns not rated for it. When it doubt, check the barrel stamping on your weapon or call the manufacturer.

These 7.62x51mm rounds are 175 grain, so they’re pretty heavy for the cartridge. These are Hollow Point Boat Tail (HPBT) rounds, so they deliver rapid energy transfer on impact and immediately begin to expand. As they expand they slow down, creating a large, catastrophic wound channel, while preventing over-penetration due to the way they decelerate. Their Boat Tails help them resist crosswinds and maintain a more balanced trajectory, making them good for long-range shots. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2890 feet per second. This is Federal’s Sierra MatchKing Gold Medal Match ammunition and is considered competition quality, though it can also be used for target practice and plinking.

When you order this single box of Federal ammunition you get 500 rounds. If you’re a competitor that gives you a good amount of ammunition to work on your skills to get a better score at your next match, and if you’re using these rounds for target practice it gives you a nice supply for honing your marksmanship in general. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota, according to high standards. Place your order now to train with high-quality, American-made ammunition from a respected company that’s almost 100 years old.
