What an awesome choice when it comes to 7.62 NATO ammunition!
These rounds are made at Lake City's Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri. These are mil-spec and made on the same equipment that outfits the United States military.
This 7.62x51 ammo is perfect for target shooting with AR-10's, M-14s, FALs, Remington 700s, and just about any other rifles chambered in either 7.62 NATO or .308.
We can't stress this enough - these rounds are manufactured to military specifications and are loaded to the M80 standard. What does that mean? These rounds are generally considered slightly less "hot" than hunting loads. That makes them a pleasure to use repeatedly when shooting at the range!
This bulk case is filled with 500 rounds. Each cartridge is loaded with a 149 grain full metal jacket bullet that moves at a manufacturer advertised muzzle velocity of 2,790 feet per second. It all adds up to wonderful efficacy if you're looking for a medium to long range round that's easy on the recoil.
We got this ammo because the plant made too much for a contract with the United States government. This ammo uses non corrosive Boxer primers and is loaded with reloadable brass casings that are annealed.
Your day at the range is coming and this is the perfect 7.62x51 ammo to make the day great. Load up today!

- At what barrel length can a Muzzle velocity of 2790fps be expected? Posted On: 6/8/2019 By: Stephen
- Hi Stephen. Unfortunately, we do not know the length or gas system (if any) of the test barrel that the manufacturer used to derive the FPS of these rounds. Without that knowledge it will be impossible to state the length you are asking and as such, these FPS ratings should only be use as a reference point.
- Does this really attract a magnet? Didn't think it did. Posted On: 9/26/2018 By: michael baca
- These rounds from Lake City are built to specification for standard M80 ball. This would include a steel based bi-metal jacket and would attract a magnet.
