Hornady American Whitetail InterLock Soft-Point (SP) 165 Grain 308 Winchester (7.62X51) Ammo - 20 Rounds
Despite being introduced as a sporting cartridge in 1952, the .308 Winchester rifle round was developed as a short cased, .30 caliber alternative to the .30-06. This fact is given great credence to the introduction of the virtually 7.62 NATO round two years later. While both cartridges are capable of being safely fired in the other’s chambers, the Winchester cartridge is usually loaded to higher pressures for use against medium and larger sized game all over the world. The .308, however, remains a multi purpose round suitable for hunting and civil defense. The 165 grain, interlock soft point, Whitetail bullet by Hornady has a muzzle velocity of 2700 feet per second with 2670 foot pounds of energy. This is a premium deer hunting round.
Hornady began making premium performance ammunition in the 1960s after almost two decades of producing bullet jackets out of rimfire brass. Today the company has become the benchmark of cartridge making, so much so that when new firearms are introduced, they are tested using Hornady because the cartridges deliver dependable results each and every time. Loaded on brass cases that are fully reloadable, these Interlock bullets maintain their mass upon entry so the expansion does not mitigate penetration.
