A very nice rifle load for general use by a well-known brand name cartridge producer. This is a simple version of the normally quite expensive 150 grain full metal jacket .308 Winchester ammo. The price point offers a very nice discount over standard round competitors and has the proven reliability of the MagTech name. This is a Boxer primed brass cased cartridge that also serves as a very high-quality donor cartridge for those who are looking for premium brass from a lower priced .308 Winchester round. This is the type of round that has perks you don’t normally get with premium ammunition but happens to be priced at a value price point. In other words this is a Unicorn round that few competitors can match for the money.
Accuracy is still good with this cartridge and the expected accuracy should exceed most competitively priced offerings with the exception of very few. You can expect between 1.5 and @MOA out of any gun and close to 1MOA out of more accurized rifles or out of bolt action guns. It is suitable for hunting if your jurisdiction allows for a full metal jacket lead core round.
For plinking it just makes sense, and if you need to handload the spent casings to extreme accuracy you can. Though you’ll likely be pleased with the price point and want to just buy more of this cartridge once you shoot it.

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 10/12/2012)
