7,62x51 – versatility in use

The 7.62x51 calibre is the NATO‘s oldest long rifle calibre. Since the end of the 1950s, armies worldwide have relied on this all-round calibre. This calibre covers almost all infantry applications – from use in machine guns to precision rifles. The calibre has been developed over the decades in application. Today, in addition to standard ammunition types specifically developed products for training, deployment and special use are available. From the armour-piercing precision bullet to the reducedpollutant manoeuvre cartridge, everything is available in calibre 7.62x51.

12,7x99 – for military users

Since its invention, the 12.7x99 calibre has impressed military users with its ability to penetrate hard targets and its long operational range. No other calibre in the world is as associated with a machine gun as the 12.7x99 alias .50 BMG. Whereby the BMG stands for Browning (inventor) Machine Gun. Our ammunition in this calibre is characterised by outstanding precision and exceptional reliability even under the most adverse conditions. In addition, all our solutions are equipped with our patented, low-emission and heavy-metal-free SINTOX primer.
