- Q & A
In 1922, Charles Horn took over a failing factory. The factory had been started in 1916, and in just six short years had taken a serious turn for the worst. So he re-founded it as Federal – a name all shooters recognize today – and started distributing ammunition everywhere possible, from gas stations to grocery stores to barber shops. His strategy worked and Federal began to grow, so much that it gained the attention of the government, which got Federal a government contract. Over the years Federal’s work supplying the military with ammunition would earn them an Army-Navy “E” for excellence and their high quality ammunition would be used to win gold and silver medals by Olympic marksmen, and today you can get your hands on their ammo for your .308 Win.
The .308 Winchester is a fantastically strong round capable of immense power. Although it’s well known for its hunting attributes and is, in fact, ideal for taking down everything from deer to caribou to bears, that isn’t all it can do. The .308 has seen extensive use by military snipes and law enforcement sharpshooters. One of these cartridges in expanding form does extensive damage to targets because it not only expands but tumbles and often fragments in tissue. This cartridge is capable of fantastic terminal performance.
These are 180 grain rounds, so they’re considered moderately heavy for the .308 Win. At this weight the rounds will both fly down-range at stunning speeds and impact your target with phenomenal strength. These are Soft Point rounds and deliver rapid energy transfer on impact as well as expansion. They expand steadily as they penetrate, working their way more deeply than the average HP and creating a more catastrophic wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2570 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2640 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for hunting game such as whitetail deer. You get 20 rounds in this box of ammunition; Federal manufactures their ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Don’t miss your dream 12-point buck due to inferior ammo; buy Federal, and bag the deer you’ve always wanted.
