Since you’re looking at ammunition for a .308 Win, odds are you’re a hunter. The .308 Win has been around for more than 60 years and although it’s seen use by military snipers and police sharpshooters its most common use is as a hunting round. Here in the States it’s commonly used for whitetail deer, moose, elk, caribou, and black bears, while in Africa it’s used for antelope of various sizes and in other countries it’s been used for a wide variety of game, some of which is of a rather astounding size. Yes, the .308 Win is a fantastic hunting round capable of immense knockdown power and stunning force, but just like any other round it requires one thing to be truly effective: shot placement.
To work on your shot placement you need a pretty sizable box of ammunition, and it would also help if that box was reasonably priced; enter Prvi Partizan. Prvi Partizan, also known as PPU, has been manufacturing ammunition since 1928. They got started supplying the local military, but it wasn’t long before they began to expand their reach; today PPU distributes ammunition all over the world. They’re known for their dedication to quality and reliable performance, and perhaps best of all their ammunition is reasonably priced. There’s no need to sacrifice quality to be a high-volume shooter, simply order from PPU.
At 145 grain these are fairly lightweight for the .308 Win cartridge size, and that means they’re going to move at even greater speeds. Don’t let their lighter weight fool you, though, they’re still capable of serious power. These are FMJ rounds, so they won’t expand on impact. Each round soars to your target with a muzzle velocity of 2837 feet per second and strikes with a muzzle energy of 2596 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice and plinking and should definitely be used to hone your shot placement and accuracy so you can have the best season ever. There are 500 target rounds in this box of ammo from PPU; manufacturing takes place at their plant in Uzice, Serbia. Order today and get ready to spend some serious time with your favorite rifle.

Consistent loads, and have never had a problem with this brand after over 1k rounds through my bolt guns alone. (no idea how many I have run through my M1A)
Just a fun Fact. PPU stands for Priv Partizan Uzice. The main facility in Uzice is a hardened structure built into a mountain. They produce all of the Serbian military stuff. (up to and including artillery and tank rounds.) (Posted on 8/15/13)
