Military Surplus 148 Grain Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) Ammo Details

Disclaimer: This German-made ammo's new production brass cases have accumulated some cosmetic corrosion during over the decades they have spent in storage.

Here we have the German military’s take on a classic American cartridge. This 308 Win ammo is perfect for zeroing a scope on your hog and deer rifle, having a bit of fun target shooting, or keeping in store for some sort of looming crisis.

This round’s 148 grain FMJ bullet is magnetic. It is jacketed with cupronickel, hence its silvery sheen, but in addition to copper and nickel cupronickel also contains a little iron and/or manganese. Manganese becomes ferromagnetic when it is mixed with copper, so do be careful about taking this ammo to ranges that ban magnetic ammo.

This cartridge is somewhat exceptional because its case still has its headstamp. That’s usually routered out to prepare German milsurp for the commercial market, but here you can still see the NATO symbol, “DAG” which stands for Dynamit Nobel, and the year of manufacture. The rounds we’ve inspected were evidently produced in 1990.

This round’s brass case chambers more cleanly than any Russian milsurp could. The discoloration circling its neck only evinces that it is annealed, although you may notice that decades in storage have caused some slight oxidation. The manufacturer sealed this ammo’s Berdan primers, which are not corrosive but would present some exceptional challenges if you wished to handload.
