Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 hole groups I have been buying the 175gr GMM for years and it never disappoints. Accuracy is outstanding, 3 round groups that measure .17-.22 moa at 100 yards. Consistent out to 1100 yards for PRS competition, just an overall outstanding product. If you want to see how accurate your rifle can be do not hesitate and give Federal Gold Medal a go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed Shot all within 1/2 inch out of my custom Stiller action 16" 308 win. rifle. Less recoil then expected for a 175gr projectile as well. And they didn't break the bank as well; which is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised ! Got a new Savage 10 FCP-SR in .308, grabbed a couple boxes of different branded ammo to see what this rifle liked....Fed, GMM 175g in an out of the box rifle was one big hole of 10 rounds at 100yds ( to sight in the gun ). I use Match Kings for all my hand loads, cant be beat ! 168g was a 4inch group. Ill stick with the 175's, cant wait to see how they do at 300+ yds !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing performance Bought a box to test and see if the hype was real. Here is a 10 shot group at 100 yds with a plain Jane Howa 1500 20 in heavy barrel and a 150 dollar scope .I immediately ordered a case

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CONSISTENCY equals accuracy!! I just assembled my first long range rifle (Rem 700 .308) and after having spent a considerable amount of money on the rifle, chassis, etc.....I wanted ammo that would perform. The Federal SMK 175gr was recommended to me. I'm glad they were. WOW! Fist time firing and zeroing my rifle, I was impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Round I bought a box of these and after I shot them I bought 200 more rounds. The consistency. The accuracy. Everything I want in a 1000+ yard shot from factory ammo. For as big of a round it is I’m very happy with it. Thank you Federal for another amazing product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ammunition,Wrong Ballistic Table on the Box I shot from AR10 while braking-in the barrel @300 The performance is absolutely outstanding with bullets touching eachother. I give 4 stars only because the Ballistic table on the box is plain wrong the row for distance is off one column compared to the dropp row Average Range should be zeroed at 100 not at 200 and all the data would be correct. The website has the correct tables but not the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CLOVERLEAF !! Thought I'd try this ammo at the range today to see how it would shoot out of my stock Remmy 700, 1:10 twist. On the interweb, all you hear is praise for this round, so I gave it a try. All I can say is INCREDIBLE!! I should have tried this sooner. 3 shot group at 100yds....all touching each other. Can you say cloverleaf?
