The base of the casing is fitted with a corrosive Berdan primer which requires greater rifle care over time, but lends itself to longer shelf-life and dependable function. This reliability was further preserved by the inclusion of primer pocket sealant which prevents moisture from reaching the inside of the cartridge. This load was topped off with a 198-grain full metal jacket (FMJ) projectile which is in the higher weight range for the caliber and matches a multitude of hunting cartridges and some other military loads as well; this allows for consistent recoil impulse and travel ballistics.
