Does anyone know what the muzzle velocity, and energy are of this round. Year of mfg. is November 1979. These are sold in 140 round sealed battle packs, 7 boxes of 20 rounds each.
Purchased from J&G Sales, Sportman's Guide, etc.

Well, I don't have specifics, but since nobody has responded, expect it to give you somewhere in the neighborhood of 2750 fps muzzle velocity from an M1A type rifle. The best I can remember that's what I chronoed this stuff at about a year ago. -Charging Handle

Check over at www.falfiles.com - I believe they have a thread going on that in their ammo forum right now.

R1M1 from my M14 was 2719 +/- 18 fps (corrected to the muzzle for standard day). This was 1980 vintage, a good year! (30 round sample thru the chronograph). -- Chuck
