Federal Premium .308 Win ammo is an excellent choice for sighting in your new rifle, or bagging your next trophy buck! The 150 grain full metal jacket boat-tail bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2,820 feet per second. Federal ammo made in Anoka, MN has a tremendous reputation for reliabilty and quality. Sight in your .308 rifle with the good stuff!

The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Intitute (SAAMI) considers .308 Win and 7.62x51mm ammo interchangeable, but check the specifications for your firearm for using this ammo when your rifle does not specifically call for .308 Win. The .308 Win replaced the .30-06 Springfield as the military cartridge of choice in the second half of the 20th century. The .30-06 has a higher twist rate of 1:10 and has longer range capabilities, but the .308 twist rate of 1:12 increases the effect of tumbling upon impact. The significance here is in stopping power. A tumbling bullet will wreak more havoc on the target than a faster, more stable round.

A: Hello Jason, This ammunition features a brass cased, copper coated bullet with a lead core. The ammunition will not attract a magnet.

A: A "boat tail" is a slight reduction in diameter at the rear of the projectile. This reduces drag, allowing the bullet to fly farther, faster, and flatter.

A: No, these Federal .308 Win cartridges are not loaded with corrosive primers. As you noted, the cases are brass and boxer primed, making them excellent candidates for reloading.
