Looking for some affordable 7.62 NATO ammunition to train with? Grab this 540 round M2A1 can of 7.62×51 mil spec ammo and enjoy plenty of trigger time with your AR-10, M-14, FAL, or other 7.62 or .308 Winchester rifle. These cartridges were manufactured in the 1980s by Syarikat Malaysia Explosive Ltd, a defense contractor now known as SME Ordnance. SME was established in 1969 and produces a variety of munitions and weapons for the Malaysian armed forces.

Each cartridge in this 540 round can fires a 146-grain bi-metal full metal jacket bullet. This results in external ballistics very similar to those of M80 ball ammo and good medium range performance. This ammo comes packaged in sturdy 50 Cal metal ammo cans that can be reused for a variety of storage purposes and come with a convenient carry handle and secure latch.

This ammo uses brass cases with intact annealing marks, as with all mil spec loads. The triple staked non-corrosive red-sealant Berdan primers provide very reliable ignition but require special equipment to remove from spent cases, so we don’t recommend reusing the brass for reloading.
