Still have lots of FMJ war surplus in many cals. Shoot mainly out of old military weapons. Plinko targets with it. Gave some .30/06 to a buddy this hunting season when he couldn't find ammo and he got a whitetail doe

Hard to believe, but I had a Remington 788 that shot factory fmj loads better than anything I could reload.
It was a terror on groundhogs.

I use it for target practice. Georgia law states bullets for hunting must be expanding type. I donít consider hogs game animals or actually hunting them. They are just live targets when Iím target shooting. They will drop the biggest hogs too. Personally I donít care if they drop or run off, I just want as many holes in them as I can get and I have a lot of FMJís, lol.

Many moon's ago, I bought a MASSIVE quantity of Interarms 30-06, FMJ, Berdan primed, and pulled the bullets and reloaded with Soft and Hollow points, worked out great.
