The .308 Win has been around since 1952, and it pretty much became instantly popular. Today it’s used by military snipers, police sharpshooters, and shooters like you for target shooting and hunting. When it comes to versatility, the .308 has it down, but it’s also true that hunting is its forte. The .308 is a fantastic hunting round not only in the United States but all around the world. In the U.S. it’s commonly used for whitetail deer, caribou, and black bear; experienced hunters have also used it on moose and elk. Outside the U.S. it sees extensive use, too: in Africa it’s favored for antelope such as Duiker and Eland and in Sweden it’s the best-seller for hunters of various large game. Of course, you need good shot placement for a clean kill, and to get that you need target practice.
These lightweight 145 grain rounds are a nice choice for working on shot placement. Because they’re so light felt recoil is reduced, allowing you to practice at greater lengths without wearing out your hands or shoulder. They’re Full Metal Jacket rounds specifically designed for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Each round moves with stunning speed at a muzzle velocity of 2756 feet per second and slams into your target with a muzzle energy of 2444 foot-pounds. Get some range time in to improve shot placement and accuracy to ensure you have a fantastic hunting season with your .308.

- Is Brown Bear .308 Win Ammo corrosive due to the berdan primer? Posted On: 1/6/2012 By: James
- The type of priming compound determines whether a primer is corrosive or not. Either berdan or boxer primers could theoretically be corrosive. The primers used for this ammo are non-corrosive.
