Default .308 short range ammo

I just saw this for the first time. It's .308 short range ammunition and it's cheap and quiet. Seems good for fun. I would not use it as practice ammo but for fun its interesting. Any thoughts ?

Hmmmmm, 472 ft/LBS, 4,400 FPS, box of 50 @ .17 ea. = $85. I don't know.
How would you get 472 '/Lbs out of 11 grains of plastic?

velocity squared times mass. I got 473 ft lbs. Wonder what the speed is at 100 meters?

And that price is ridiculous unless it is for 1000 rounds-

Try this one- http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/7-62-x-51mm-short-range-training-ammunition-50rd.html

So, c3shooter, what do you think about the 4,400 FPS?
