The .308 Win has become the most popular hunting round not only in the United States but all over the world. It’s used for a wide variety of game from whitetail deer to elk to antelope, and everything in between (as well as some not so “in between”). It’s used by Bushveld hunters in Africa to take down a variety of types of antelope and has been noted as the most popular cartridge in Sweden, and no wonder. The .308 Win delivers a clean kill and substantial knockdown power; it’s the kind of cartridge you can use to take down a feral hog one day and a deer the next, so what’s not to love?
These particular .308 Win rounds are made by Magtech, a company known for quality and reliable performance. Magtech’s factory is vertically integrated, meaning each and every component is made right there on site. Propellants, bullets, primers, even the rolls of brass used for casings, they produce it all themselves, allowing for exceptional quality control. They’ve been in the business of making ammunition since 1926, and over the years they’ve continued to come up with new and innovative ways to make ammunition even better.
At 150 grain these are moderately weighted rounds capable of delivering a powerful punch on impact. They’re Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail (FMJBT) rounds and as such will not expand on impact. And, in fact, they’re prone to over-penetration and traveling long distances unchecked, so you need a good backstop in place during range time. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 2820 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2649 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for target practice and plinking. There are 500 target rounds in this box. If you want to be truly well prepared on your next hunt, get this box of ammunition so you can work on shot placement and accuracy and have the best season ever.

Fired another box of Federal's and a Buddy's box of 168grn Sierra MatchKing reloads - they fired just fine.
Plus: MagTech Custoer Service was outstanding in picking up the ammo and refunding my $. (Posted on 10/12/12)
