Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable out of the box Ive been using my .308 for long shooting (200-1208 yards) for the last year and have found the Federal Gold SMK 175 grain to be perfect for my needs. It is reliable and enjoyable to use as ammunition. In fact, you know it is a great bullet when a non shooter, can index and hit first shots at multiple ranges, with no experience, at 600, 800, and 1000 yards. It is a solid reliable round that makes me not want to reload, and i am fine with that,....thank you very much Federal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance I bought my first .308 in March and I wanted to test the accuracy of my new Remington 700 5R 24" so I went straight to the gold standard. I was not disappointed. After shooting a 5 shot group with FGMM 175s that measured .695" at 100 I decided to try the 168s. The first two shot printed left of my point of aim but on my third shot it had returned back to my point of aim point of impact. I fired two more rounds to finish off the 3 round group and all three rounds fell into .134"!!!! I will definitely be purchasing more of this ammo in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winner-Winner Accurate-Reliable Period! Always knew 168gr BTHP was choice round for my SA M1A. Ran through the usual shopping cart list of manufactures with inconsistent results until!!! A grizzly old Gunny barked "Shoot Federal and stop whining you..." the rest you imagine. Behold results...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down most accurate factory ammunition I spent a lot of money and time trying to figure out why my brand new rifle would not group as advertised. This ammunition flat out shoots! Don't waste your time with any of the other manufactures match grade ammunition. I wish I would have started with Federal ammunition! Federal has it figured out!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want the best, buy the best. After trying many brands and weights, SMK in 168 gives SUB-MOA precision AND accuracy. I'll try the Golf "Berger" bullets; we'll see if .5 MOA can be bettered.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best When I first bought my 308 rifle, I wasn’t the happiest with my accuracy using lighter ammo loads. To friends recommendation I bought a few boxes of the 168gr Sierra Matchking and the results were astounding. First time zeroing in a new optic with this ammo I put together a 1.5 MOA group from 100 yards, taking the ammo quality out of the equation and focusing on improving my shooting technique, the paper doesn’t lie.
