Each round in the included metal ammo can is Belgian military surplus manufactured utilizing a 7.62x51mm 142-grain Full Metal Jacket bullet, non-reloadable Berdan primer, and brass casing. This ammunition is non-corrosive and will attract a magnet. Also, the rounds come linked but aren’t too much of a hassle to delink.
Most of the rounds were manufactured in the 1980s and should be inspected prior to use. Also, most ammunition has been stored in and will ship in metal cans for increased protection.
Many military firearms were designed to specific rounds that vary slightly from their civilian models. They vary just enough to prevent civilian ammunition from being safe or dependable. Lucky 7.62×51 owners now have another option – the 7.62×51 NATO 142 gr. FMJ Belgian in 250 linked belts.
Military surplus firearm owners and collectors who want to enjoy their masterpiece in its natural setting rather than sitting on a display table will enjoy the 7.62×51 142 gr. FMJ Belgian and the newfound ability to hit the range.
