A premium offering from Federal Premium, this .308 Winchester in 165 grain configuration offers a great level of versatility for deer season. The 165 grain trophy bonded tip offers excellent accuracy and controlled expansion in a grain weight that is straight down the middle of the offerings in .308 Win.
The Federal Premium brand name has very few naysayers, even if they prefer a different cartridge, because of Federal’s capabilities, reliability and component selection. The general perception of the brand on the broad market is exceptional. The U.S. military utilizes several different rounds manufactured by the same production facilities. The quality of components for this load is high, with the nickel plated brass cartridge case and premium primer offering easy reloading once the round has been shot. These same components contribute to the near mythical reliability of the Federal Premium rifle cartridge line as they rarely fail and the feeding and cycling reliability of the load is top tier.
A very solid 2700 feet per second velocity and 2670 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle makes this a potent .308 and more than capable in deer season and beyond for hunters who want the type of accuracy, reliability and shooting experience harmony that this Federal Premium load can offer.
