308 – 125 Grain GMX – Black Hills Gold – 20 Rounds

We love it when a superlative ammunition manufacturer teams up with an equally accomplished bullet expert to make an end-all hunting cartridge. That’s why we’re particularly fond of this 308 Win. It’s made by Black Hills, whose loading techniques render any argument that handloading isn’t an art completely irrelevant. One would imagine that firearm manufacturers such as Colt, Smith & Wesson, and Springfield Armory could tag anyone they desired for their testing ammo. That they consistently choose Black Hills is an objective testament to their quality.

Black Hills themselves tagged Hornady to make this cartridge’s 125 grain projectile. It is a GMX, which features the monolithic copper construction that Californian hunters require. The virtue of copper extends beyond its friendliness to the environment — its greater toughness than lead’s means that the GMX loses no more than five percent of its weight as it penetrates a target, and it furthermore greatly reduces bore fouling. The GMX’s sleek profile, cannelures, and polymer tip give it great accuracy, and its tip permits it to expand up to 1.5 times its original diameter during penetration. “Black Hills & Hornady” ought to become as iconic a team-up “Bonnie & Clyde,” “Hall & Oates,” or “peanut butter & jelly.”

7.62×51 – 200 Grain FMJ – Sellier & Bellot Subsonic – 20 Rounds

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.
