Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate and precise Consistently shoots under 1/2-inch @ 200yards in my Rem 700SPS Varmint. I've taken one axis buck and three does with this load/rifle in two years. Two with shots through the C3-C4 vertebrae and the other two perfect brain stem shots. All shots dropped the animals where they stood with little or no suffering. I'd feel confident with those kinds of shots with this load out to about 300 yards. Not sure I'd trust it much further than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only ammo for my Browning .308 I have a Browning BLR .308 and this is the ONLY ammo I would use when hunting whitetail. 1 bullet = 1 filled tag...always! My best shot was 200 yards and bagged a 8 pointer. I will not use any other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome whitetail ammo 5 years with this round hunting the Texas Hill Country and the Rio Grande Valley and not one animal took more than a few steps. Most have been DRT. This ammo prints remarkably close to the 168 gr FGMM out of my Rem 700 5R Milspec. Highl recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go to cartridge for Eastern Whitetail. A well placed shot results in venison in the freezer. I switched to this cartridge in 1995 after almost losing a beautiful 10 point buck because a Remington Core-Loc bullet disintegrated on its shoulder. My subsequent search took me to this round and I haven't looked back since. Several deer since then haven't looked back either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing else goes in my rifle, nothing! I have used this round in my BAR for over twenty years. I have never pointed my .308 at a deer and pulled the trigger without filling the tag. Accurate to a fault and devastating on impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from totally awesome performance on deer extremely accurate in three different rifles with devastating results on whitetails and antelope

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 Elk Down Wolcott, Colorado Elk. Some may doubt the effectiveness of a .308 as it pertains to shooting Elk...This past weekend was proof that this cartridge is more than sufficient. 16 minutes (For some reason the guide kept time) after sighting in the rifles and driving up to glass our next mornings hunt, we luckily snuck up on a bedded herd. 240 yards, 1 shot, 1 kill. Two days later one of my hunting partners slipped and fell with his .300 WSM hitting the scope on a log. Unsure if the scope was off or not he borrowed my .308...8:01 Saturday morning - 2 more Elk shot and tags were filled for the trip. I love this round. All 3 shots were through and through with large exit wounds. Precision was excellent. 2 Elk dropped where they stood, other made it about 50 yards and dropped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will never buy another bullet! Dead on accuracy! Glad I finally found a round I can count on.
