If you're looking for high powered, effective ammo for your .30-06, then you've found exactly what you've been looking for with this box of 20 rounds of hollow point boat tail ammo by Federal Ammunition.
To be more specific, these are 168gr, hollow point boat tail, brass cased and boxer primed. At 168gr, these are mid weight rounds for a .30-06 cartridge, and will therefore provide greater muzzle velocity over long ranges and less kick to your shoulder with each shot. These rounds will deliver approximately 2,719 feet per pound of muzzle energy, and 2,700 feet per second of muzzle velocity.
Most American shooters prefer brass cased rounds due to higher reliability over cheaper steel cased rounds. Brass cased rounds have been found to be less prone to jams and malfunctions than steel cased rounds as well. In addition, boxer primers are the standard for primers in America, over Berdan primers, because boxer primers are easier to reload the empty cartridges, due to the anvil being separate from the primer.
But what really makes these particular rounds stand out is the fact that they are hollow point boat tail rounds. A hollow point boat tail round is a match grade bullet that produces less turbulence when it is fired from the gun. Hollow point rounds themselves are an excellent defense round to having a hollowed out shape at the tip and expanding and causing greater damage when they hit the target.
