17. ball ammo = FMJ
Edited on Mon May-21-07 08:01 AM by formercia
Standard military issue or equivalent.

Some of the newer issue rounds use a bonded-core bullet that doesn't fragment as easily and penetrates better. I tested some of the Olympic(greek) 7.62x63 (30-06) bonded core fmj and it had a lot more punch than the older type with a copper jacket swaged over a lead core.
