Details

The .308 Winchester ammunition was born of a need to keep a .30 caliber bullet capable of the same ballistic performance of the established .30-06 round yet be delivered from a shorter case more suitable to semi and full automatic rifles – not to mention be lighter to carry for more rounds per pound. Introduced in 1952, the .308 provided what was required, matching ’06 performance out to all but extreme long range, and it was the basis for the 7.62NATO round which became the standard military rifle cartridge not just for the US but for the entire Treaty Organization. Both calibers are rated by SAAMI as interchangeable, though the .308 is loaded to slightly higher pressure. Hornady’s 150 grain soft point bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2820 feet per second with 2648 foot pounds of energy. Many shooters rely on this product for hunting boar to deer.

Hornady was originally begun as a bullet jacket maker in the 1940’s but in 1964 began making ammo in its own right. Since then, it is a company recognized for innovative bullet design that is trusted by both law enforcement as well as sport hunters for when each and every shot needs to deliver results. Hornady brass, in addition to being reloadable, is also trusted by custom handloaders and smaller ammo manufacturers for their own products.
