This rimmed cartridge is a ballistically efficient cartridge that functions in an incredible range of conditions. This cartridge also fits squarely in the comfortable niche that Sellier and Bellot has carved out for themselves in markets around the world: Military calibers, made for the civilian community based on contracts whereby S&B produce for law enforcement and military.
S&B has been in the American market for decades excelling on producing rounds like this: it is their bread and butter. The 7.62x54R ammo that is listed here features a 180 grain soft point bullet, which is strictly in compliance with the public desire for a round that is true to military specifications. The powder is slightly dirtier than normal consumer driven lines, but the ignition is reliable, the feeding and extraction and tolerances are all high grade.
This particular load achieves a velocity of 2625fps and an energy level of 2750 ft. lbs. ot of the barrel, putting it into the big game hunting realm. Make no mistake, this is not the cheap ammunition you bought in the 1980’s and 1990’s it is a premium version of the classic military round, made for a discerning user that might want to expand on what they do with their 7.62x54R firearm.
