Most people go plinking with empty cans. You, on the other hand, like the ideal human specimen that you are, prefer plinking with empty steel drums and junk cars. You like to go big, which is why you like the 50 BMG.
This is the same kind of ammunition you would find at Fort Benning. It is the U.S. Army’s own M33, with a standard weight 660 grain FMJ bullet. Loaded to a muzzle velocity of 2,910 fps, it carries 12,408 ft lbs of energy at the muzzle. (About 177 times more powerful than a 22 Short, to put things in context.) The bullet’s gilding metal jacket inhibits terminal expansion, but its mild steel core fortifies it for clean passage through barriers as substantial as brick and concrete. Point is, a 50 BMG can tackle pretty much anything you’d ask it to outside of a rifle range.
This is brand new ammo from the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Missouri. It includes reloadable brass cases, non-corrosive primers, and clean-burning propellant. The U.S. government’s primary small arms ammo supplier isn’t all that concerned with store packaging, so these 50 rounds come together loose in a brown cardboard box.
Good military surplus.
Good, clean military surplus ammunition at a good price.
