Rated 5 out of 5 by from All my guns love this stuff Been buying for 3 years for my 30.06 and just got 308. Tried 11 different types and federal blue won every time. Lucky me. Found everything I shot with 20 yards. Most just dropped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles Buisness! I used your 180 gr load to kill one of my personal best whitetails here in South Georgia. The bullet entered the left side of the deer's neck because he was angling away from me went through the spine and ran through the right shoulder and came to a stop in the outer flesh of the rib cage. When the bullet was recovered it was approximately 1/2 " long and mushroomed. I was impressed with high tough this budget no frills bullet is for the price. I highly recommend this bullet for serious hunters who aren't interested in the latest or newest fad / trendy bullet but instead want reliable performance each shot. Thanks Federal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is Tony the Tiger great I took a yearling bull elk (antlerless draw hunt) at 265 yards. I missed seeing the bullet strike, but by the time I had chambered a 2nd round and started to aim, he was on his knees and down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deer round that also works on Elk! Long story short, i landed in Montana from the UK in 2014 on a deer/elk hunt but without my home loaded ammo. I managed to find the last 2 boxes of this ammo in a store in Bozeman, and although i knew it was primarily a deer round it was better than nothing. Well i was pleasantly surprised, my first ever bull Elk shot at 231 yards with this ammo ran 50 yards and dropped down stone dead. Same story with the deer i have shot since. Very consistent accurate round, you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bullets for deer! These bullets will kill deer ever time when you putthem behind the should of a deer use ,they are great for deer. I've also killed Elk with them they are really not an Elk bullet but they will work. The deer do not go far after shot with these bullets. they work. If you do not like to track deer use them, they are great and work .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best factory ammo I have used! I absolutely LOVE this federal "blue box" ammo. Mostly I use the .30-06 180 grain flavor, but I buy it for all my rifles and it performs well in any of them. Best 5 shot groups I have ever gotten (including hand loads) have been with this ammo... BUT... lets get to what matters here, performance on game. While I will not say that I have shot more deer than anyone, I can say that I shoot more deer in one year than most hunters shoot in a lifetime. You see, we have a large farm and get Depredation Permits from the state to control the deer population so we have a unique insight into performance on game. I have NEVER lost an animal with the Federal Power-Shok 180gr. .30-06 round and I can think of only one that didn't drop right where it was shot, that deer made it about 50 feet. We use all the meat here or give it away to the needy, so not damaging meat is important to us, that is why having ammo that performs consistently is so vital. I have actually sold my reloading kit and only use your Federal Power-Shok ammo now, it is that good. I absolutely reccommend this as a GREAT round for White Tail Deer! Your ammo is affordable, consistent and has never let me down. I demand alot out of the machines on my farm, my rifle is one of those tools and with your ammunition I am always pleased. Thank you for producing a fine product, you have a life long customer here.
