The 7.62x51 NATO round was adopted by the Treaty Organization two years after the .38 Winchester cartridge was introduced on the US commercial market. Physically identical, the .308 generally is loaded to higher pressure, but both calibers can be safely fired in either chamber. This has led to the caliber being just as popular with sportsmen shooters as well as those training for personal and civil defense. The 168 grain hollow point bullet by Federal leaves the muzzle velocity of 2650 feet per second with 2619 foot pounds of energy. This is suitable for range and target training but also suitable for some hunting and defense shooting as well. The product’s primary purpose, however, if for competitions, be they long range or military style. The 500 round case is the perfect insurance available for peace of mind should peace of world take a sudden turn.

This 500 round case of Federal Premium ammunition is a quality choice for the serious competitor looking for consistent and top notch performance. Federal has been making ammunition from Minnesota since the 1920’s and is well established as a quality hunting and performance cartridge producer. Cases are perfectly suited for and sought after by handloaders – as well as other commercial manufacturers - for making their own custom rounds.
