The .308 Win has been around since 1952, and that means it’s been wildly popular for more than 60 years. Granted, the use of “wildly” to describe its popularity might be a bit too ironic considering its most common use is as a powerful hunting round. Here in the U.S. the .308 Win is typically used for game such as whitetail deer, bear, and caribou, and in Africa it’s used by Bushveld hunters to take down various sizes of antelope. Over the years it’s been used on a wide variety of game, and if it’s your preferred hunting round you know it’s important to master shot placement in order to guarantee a clean kill every time.
In order to master shot placement you need some target rounds like these from Prvi Partizan. Prvi Partizan, also known as PPU, has been manufacturing ammunition since 1928; that’s nearly a century of production experience. They got their start with the purpose of supplying their local military with ammunition, but they’ve expanded far beyond such modest aspirations. Today PPU ammunition is distributed all over the world and is respected for its good quality and reliable performance. And, yes, they did reach their local goals, too. PPU is the sole supplier for the Serbian military and law enforcement agencies.
At 145 grain these are considered rather lightweight rounds for the .308 Win. They’re FMJ rounds and as such will not expand on impact but will simply hit the target, penetrate, and continue on their way. Rifle rounds like these can travel literally for miles without stopping, so it’s very important to have a solid backstop in place during range time. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 2837 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2596 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. There are 20 target rounds in this box of ammunition which is manufactured at the PPU plant in Uzice, Serbia. Don’t let lack of practice ruin your once-in-a-lifetime shot on a hunt. Order these target rounds today and get the range time you need to be a truly successful hunter.
