The RUAG Group is a multinational corporation that was founded in 1998 and finds its headquarters in Bern, Switzerland. The corporation is involved in the aerospace and defense technology industries, with production sites located in Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Hungary and the United States. It is also the head of a number of different production divisions, including RUAG Ammotec.
RUAG Ammotec is a production division under the RUAG Group that focuses its efforts on the production of high quality small arms ammunition and pyrotechnic components for the military, law enforcement and civilian markets. Marked by their precision performance and unyielding reliability, all RUAG Ammotec products are manufactured in compliance with CIP, SAAMI or NATO specifications. And just as the RUAG Group has a number of foreign production sites, RUAG Ammotec boasts a range of locations as well, including RUAG Ammotec USA, Inc. in Tampa, Florida, which is home to a number of respected brands that offer products covering all applications.
If you are wondering why I am bothering to discuss the RUAG Group at all, it is because RUAG Ammotec took control of MFS 2000 Inc. back in 2008. MFS 2000 Inc. is a Hungarian ammunition manufacturer located in Sirok, Hungary that was originally established in 1952 and is responsible for our MFS .308 Winchester Ammunition. As noted, the brand is renowned for consistent performance, reliability and affordability.
By this point, you probably think the ride is over. Unfortunately it is not and the connections do not end there. It might seem logical that MFS .308 Winchester ammunition is manufactured by MFS 2000 Inc. in Hungary. It is not. MFS .308 Winchester ammunition is actually manufactured in Russia at the Barnaul Cartridge Plant. Now the madness is complete.
Each package of MFS .308 Winchester ammunition contains 20 non-corrosive, zinc-plated, steel-cased cartridges. Each cartridge is loaded with a 140 gr soft-point bullet, which provides for expansion upon impact and maximal tissue damage. Additionally, these cartridges have muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel at speeds in excess of 2,700 fps.
Whether you call it RUAG .308 Winchester ammunition or MFS .308 Winchester ammunition, one thing is certain – it is great ammunition. Consider this ammunition for:
- Sport shooting
- Target shooting
- Much more…
It is now available for $10.74 per box.
