Federal was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn, who set about making the company a success with a basic marketing plan. He got started by selling the company’s ammunition in barber shops, gas stations, and grocery stores, and before long they became a well-known name in the industry. It wasn’t longer before they won a government contract to build and operate what is now the Twin City Ordnance Plant, and they ended up producing ammunition for the U.S. military through World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam. For their efforts they were awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence; no surprise since excellence is something Federal is known for to this day.

These particular Federal rounds are for your .308 Win. At 168 grain they’re moderately heavy, and certainly heavy enough to deliver quite a blow to targets. These are Hollow Point Boat Tail (HPBT) rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. As they mushroom they also slow down, penetrating and creating a devastating wound cavity. Each round leaves the barrel of your rifle with a muzzle velocity of 2650 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2620 foot-pounds. This is Federal’s Premium Gold Medal Match ammunition and is meant for superior competition shooting.

When you place your order for this single box of ammunition you get 500 rounds. That’s enough for some serious training time; your accuracy and grouping could improve quite a bit before you see the bottom of this box. Federal produces this ammunition in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so you can burn through the entire box, collect your spent casings, reload them, and get more range time. Ammunition is manufactured at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota. If you want to see better scores at your next competition, you want this ammunition; order now.
