Scientists tell us the universe was created by the big bang. Whether that’s the case or not, we’ve personally never noticed that anything good comes out of big bangs. A rifle’s clamorous report only serves to upset our neighbors, hurt our ears, and potentially scare off the thing we are shooting at.
If you’d rather not create big bangs while you’re doing your thing, then you want this subsonic 7.62×51 ammunition by Czech manufacturer Sellier & Bellot. This round’s 200 grain bullet is super heavy for its class, and accordingly pours out of a rifle’s muzzle with only 1,000 fps to its name. That’s a lot slower than what it would take to crack the sound barrier, so while you’ll still need hearing protection you’ll benefit from far quieter shooting.
This round showcases Sellier & Bellot’s usual flair for consistent quality. A carefully formulated and weighed charge of clean burning propellant gives that heavy bullet the same kind of push with every ignition. The bullet itself is a standard FMJ, evenly jacketed for accuracy and hard enough to feed reliably into any sort of rifle’s chamber. Sellier & Bellot loads with brass and non-corrosive Boxers, so you can 100 percent reload this ammo if you wish!
You can fire 7.62×51 in a rifle chambered for 308 Win.
