The .308 Win is a vastly popular hunting round. In North America it’s been used for everything from whitetail deer to elk to pronghorn to black bear, but that’s not all, not by far. An American gun writer by the name of Clay Harvey has written about his use of the round on moose and elk, and the head of Swedish ammunition companies have stated that it’s their best-selling round. In addition, Bushveld hunters in Africa rely on the .308 Win to take down antelope of various sizes. Not only is the .308 Win possibly the most popular rifle hunting round in the country, it just might be reaching that level of popularity around the world.
These .308 Win rounds weigh in at 140 grain, making them lightweight for the cartridge size. Being lighter weight gives them the ability to travel at greater velocities, and at this size they’re still heavy enough to make a significant impact. These are Soft Point (SP) rounds, meaning they begin to expand on impact at a slower rate than HPs, which enables them to penetrate targets more fully and create a deeper, more catastrophic wound track. SPs can be used in areas where HPs are banned. This ammunition is made by Brown Bear for use hunting game such as whitetail deer.
There are 20 rounds in this single box of ammunition; this box is a great size for carrying in your pocket when you head out the door to hunt and is also a nice size for toting in your range bag or stacking on the shelf in your safe. Just remember, it’s still only 20 rounds, and odds are you’re going to want more ammunition, so you might want to order more than one box. Brown Bear is part of the Barnaul Machine Tool Plant, which was founded in 1869. Barnaul manufactures these steel-cased, berdan primed rounds at their longtime factory in Barnaul, Russia. Whether you want them for your next hunt or for range time, place your order without delay.
