Lake City 149 Grain Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) Ammo Details

Many owners of M-14s, AR-10s, and various other 7.62 NATO and .308 Winchester rifles seek out Lake City ammunition for their target practice needs. Made at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, this ammo follows the M80 military specification and is well regarded for its accuracy, consistent production quality, and reasonable cost.

Each round in this case of 500 propels a 149 grain full metal jacket bullet to a muzzle velocity of 2,790 feet per second. Compared to other 7.62 and .308 loads, this ammo is a good balance of power and recoil, maintaining strong long range accuracy without the punishing kick of many hunting loads. This is an excellent choice for target shooting, where there is no emphasis on terminal ballistics.

Lake City ammo is made in Missouri using non corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass with visible annealing marks. While not as visually appealing to some as the polished brass used in commercial ammo, these marks provide instant visual confirmation that the casing has been heat treated correctly.

    Good shipping response. Ammo was loose packed. Upon repacking there was only 499 rods vice 500 rods. Apparently the manufacturer relies on the scale for accurately instead of putting in a couple rds to ensure the count to the consumer's benefit.

    The transaction was good and shipping was reasonably quick. I did, however, when I repacked found that the purchased 500 round box contained but 499 rounds. One dastardly round short. Usually a manufacturer who depends on a by weight count will add one or two of the bulk purchase item in the count 'to be sure' the count is correct in the customer's favor; apparently Lake City does not do that.

    I've gone through a couple boxes of this ammo & not one misfire out of more than 1000 rounds! The accuracy is spot on! Great practice ammo, can't beat the price!
