Ammo Overview

Quantity - 500 rounds loose
Manufacturer - Lake City
Bullets - 175 open tip match (OTM) XM118 Long Range
Casings - Boxer-primed brass
These are considered "Military Seconds" but are still highly accurate


This 7.62x51mm ammo is known by its military designation as M118LR ammo is ideally suited for long-range precision shooting. This ammo features a 175 grain open-tip match bullet that delivers superb accuracy and tight groupings at long ranges. This ammo is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant and excess production is made available to the commercial market.

This ammo, unlike commercial ammunition, still shows the annealing marks near the case neck which is a military requirement to visually show that this final neck annealing process has been completed to ensure the brass is not brittle. Commercial ammo undergoes this same process but it is then run through a final cleaning process to make it more aesthetically attractive but the military prefers the assurances that come from the visual process over the ammo looking pretty. While not the prettiest ammo, you'll be impressed with the match quality.

A: Hello Charles, The Lake City Long Range and Match brass does not use a crimped primer in their rounds.

A: Hey Jeff, you should be good to go with 7.62x51mm in your Sig Sauer 716. This, like most Federal FMJ ammo, is a great choice if you're looking for a top of the line range round. Thanks for the questions and have fun at the range!

A: This Lake City 7.62x51mm (308 Win) ammunition is loaded with non corrosive components. The brass is boxer primed which may be saved for the reloading process.

A: This Federal 7.62x51 ammo will work well in your rifle chambered for either 308 or 7.62x51. Since this ammo is usually loaded to a lower pressure than 308, it will safely fire in a 308 rifle. This is similar to the 223/5.56 relationship. Additionally, it is best to avoid shooting 308 ammo in a rifle designated for 7.62x51.
