- Q & A
7.62x51mm rounds first hit the market in 1954 when they were first designed for use in the M14 and M60. Today there are still a number of guns in use in the United States military chambered in this caliber including sniper rifles and the M240. One of the greatest points of confusion is its external similarity to .308 Win. Although they appear quite similar they’re actually not quite the same. .308 Win is often loaded to a higher internal pressure than 7.62x51mm. That means a .308 Win round shouldn’t simply be fed into a gun chambered specifically for 7.62x51mm. Always check the barrel, and when in doubt, contact the manufacturer.
These 7.62x51mm rounds are 175 grain, making them fairly heavy for the cartridge size. At this weight these rounds continue to move towards targets at high speeds while being heavy enough to hit with considerable force. These are BTHP, Boat Tail Hollow Point, rounds and so will begin to expand immediately upon impact. Thanks to their BTs they maintain a more balanced trajectory and also resist crosswinds more readily, and their HPs mean they decelerate as they mushroom, creating a sizeable, catastrophic wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2555 feet per second. PNW designed these rounds for hunting game such as deer.
There are 400 rounds in this box of ammunition. With that much ammunition you should be well prepared for hunting season, and because they’re made in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, you can reload your spent casings. The ability to reload means getting even more use out of your purchase. PNW Arms was founded in 2008 and has a reputation for having high standards for the production of their ammunition. Whether you’re interested in a stellar hunting season or just want to work on your longer-range shots, place your order and feed your gun.
