A fantastic round by Sellier & Bellot for the much beloved 7.62x54R with a shiny exterior and a very nice performance curve. This is a 180 grain full metal jacket projectile in a brass case with a Boxer primer which is an obvious value add, especially considering S&B’s excellent brass. This ammunition offers significant performance for any scenario you decide to use it for. The 180 grain round could easily take the vast majority of large game in North America. The accuracy potential of this cartridge hovers near 2 MOA and generally can be shot to better than 1.5MOA out of most regular rifles with some basic changes. The round itself is quite an accurate round, and the rifles that shoot it, are generally mid range for accuracy. With the right optics, bedding and barrel work, or a factory accurized rifle, this round could easily shoot at the 1MOA level.

The static ballistic numbers are as follows: 2579 feet per second velocity and 2665 ft. lbs. of energy out of the muzzle. These numbers make it a potent round for most game work and certainly keeps it capable at the range

A: This S&B 7.62x54R is brand new, non-corrosive ammo loaded in boxer-primed brass cases that are suitable for reloading. Surplus 7.62x54R is corrosive and non-reloadable. A future supply of surplus 7.62x54R ammo is uncertain.

A: From time to time, we do get surplus ammunition. By its very nature, this is not a constant, in-stock item, and we cannot currently predict if or when this will occur in the future.

A: FMJ (full metal jacket) bullets are generally designed to be legal for use in land warfare or for ease of manufacture, not for ideal terminal performance. In 7.62x54R, the selection of projectiles for hunting is limited, but a soft point (SP) or hollow point boat tailed (HPBT) bullet would be a better choice.
