.308 ammunnition that’s ideal for your next trip to the woods!
In 1922, Charles Horn visited a six-year-old factory in Minnesota. After closer inspection he knew the factory was failing, but instead of closing it down entirely he decided to take over and turn it into a success. He re-founded the factory as the Federal Cartridge Company, implementing a marketing plan that included selling ammunition in barber shops, grocery stores, and gas stations. Before long, Federal was flourishing, and the rest is, as they say, ammunition history. Today Federal is one of the most well-known and widely respected ammunition factories in the country; generations of gun owners have turned to Federal to fulfill their hunting and sport-shooting needs, and so should you.
These particular Federal rounds are made for your .308 Win. At 165 grain these are fairly heavy rounds capable of delivering solid knockdown power, but don’t let their weight fool you; this ammunition zips down-range at impressive speeds. These are Soft Point, SP, rounds, and begin to expand immediately upon impact, decelerating as they mushroom for a massive wound cavity. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun at a muzzle velocity of 2600 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 2476 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically made by Federal for tactical use, designed according to the needs of law enforcement. It can also be used for hunting game up to the size of whitetail deer.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Federal, you get 20 SP rounds. That’s just enough to zero your optics and load your gun. If you want to put some practice rounds down-range, which is highly recommended, consider ordering multiple boxes of ammunition. SPs produce greater felt recoil than target rounds, so the best way to ensure accuracy in the heat of the moment is by practicing with these rounds ahead of time. One of the great things about SPs is that they can be used in areas where HPs are banned. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and feed your gun high quality, American-made ammunition.
