We sell sell plenty of 500-round cases of ammunition, but we often wonder: Wouldn’t 600-round cases be 20% better? Well, imagine our pleasant surprise when these lovely cases of 7.62×51 ammo by Sellier & Bellot appeared in our warehouse!
Each one of these Czech-made 7.62×51 cartridges has a 147 grain FMJ projectile, loaded to a muzzle velocity of 2,776 fps. 7.62×51 aficionados will recognize those as the M80 ball round’s specs, and they’ll be happy to see that this ammo performs nearly identically to the stuff the Army uses. Sellier & Bellot very nicely avoids putting any steel in their bullets. No part of this cartridge could attract a magnet, so you can fire away at any range you like no matter their policy on magnetic ammo.
Are you worried that Czech ammo might be corrosive? Don’t be. Sellier & Bellot only loads non-corrosive primers, so your AR-10 or 308 hunting rifle won’t be at risk of rusting up. Those are Boxer primers, specifically, which alongside their new brass cases make these rounds a superb choice for handloaders.
