- Q & A
In 1920 a man by the name of Charles Horn visited a then-failing factory. The factory was only four years old, having been built in 1916, and Horn felt he could turn things around. He took over, re-founded it as Federal Cartridge Company, and implemented his own sales plan. Before long Federal was selling ammunition in grocery stores, barber shops, and gas stations and had become a well-known and trusted name. Next they were awarded a government contract to build and operate the Twin City Ordnance Plant and the rest is, as they say, ammunition history.
These particular rounds are manufactured by Federal for your .308 Win. Each round weighs in at 149 grain which is fairly heavy and the standard weight for these particular XM80CL rounds. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. As with all target rounds these are prone to over-penetration so make sure you have a reliable backstop in place during target practice. This ammunition is made specifically for target practice and plinking.
When you order this box of ammunition from Federal you get 20 rounds. They’re XM80CL rounds, meaning they are MIL-SPEC 7.62x51mm rounds (.308 Win). Because they are XM80CL they have steel in their projectiles and magnetic brass as per military specifications. Also as per military requirements the annealing process is left visible as evidence of its having been done. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 2735 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2485 foot-pounds. Federal manufactures these XM80CL rounds at the Lake City plant in Independence, Missouri. Order now for some MIL-SPEC trigger time with your .308 Win.
