The .308 Winchester was designed in 1952 and soon marketed to hunters, which is the area in which it became and remains immensely popular. Of course, as a powerful and effective long-range round it’s used for more than hunting. Police sharpshooters and military snipers have used the .308 Win fairly extensively, and it’s also a great round for competition matches as well as spending time at your favorite outdoor shooting spot just slinging lead down-range for the fun of it. If you, like so many others, use your .308 Win for hunting, you understand the need to load your rifle with the right ammunition for a successful hunt. PMC understands that need, too, and that’s why they make this Precision ammunition.
PMC (Precision Made Cartridge) was founded in 1968 for the purpose of keeping the South Korean military stocked with ammunition. In order to meet those needs right from the start, PMC has worked to meet the higher standards of the military for terminal performance and reliability. One way they exercise greater quality control is by producing all components from raw materials on-site, right down to the brass rolls needed for casings. Today PMC’s ammunition is distributed all around the globe and is enjoyed for its reliable performance.
These .308 Win rounds are 168 grain, making them medium-weight. They’re more than heavy enough to wreak havoc on your target but still light enough to soar towards your target at amazing speeds. These are HPBT (Hollow Point Boat Tail) rounds and begin to expand immediately on impact, mushrooming as they penetrate to create a large, devastating wound channel for fantastic knockdown power. Because they have BTs they’re better able to resist crosswinds and maintain a balanced trajectory, making them a good choice for long-range shots. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2700 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2719 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for hunting game such as whitetail deer and is manufactured by PMC at their factories in Angang and Dongrae, South Korea. There are 20 rounds in this box.
