Today I am taking some Sellier and Bellot 308 Match Ammunition to the range to try out in my CETME rifle.
Sellier and Bellot has been producing cartridge ammunition since 1825.
They produce ammunition using high quality components which is used by hunters, competition shooters, law enforcement agencies and militaries around the world.
This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
Here is the Technical Information on the rounds:
- Caliber: 308 Winchester
- Bullet Weight: 168 Grains
- Bullet Style: Hollow Point Boat Tail
- Case Type: Brass
- Muzzle Velocity: 2628 fps
- Muzzle Energy: 2577 ft. lbs.
I found this ammo to be good quality, but I had a problem with very hard primers. That is not always a problem and if you have a gun with a free floating firing pin, then it is a good thing, but if you are shooting a gun with a light firing pin spring you may have many failure to fire malfunctions with this ammo.
This .308 Math Ammunition is actually better than my ability to fire it, and after using it in other guns, I am starting to think that it may have been my gun – not for the group – that was my fault, but for the hard primers.
In the video I used a CETME but I am fond of other .308 rifles – check out this article on how to chose the best .308 rifle.
