Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my gun Tried these and couldn't hold a group worth a darn. 4 " group at 100 yrds. Put in Federal 70 gr. Nosler and had all 3 shots inside a quarter. These arent worth the cheap price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Accurate Shoots tiny groups in my Ruger M77MK II. After handloading several types of rounds these beat everything hands down. Different lots are always consistent in my experience. Shooting 8x10 steel plates at 300 yards is down right monotonous. They are cheap and I won't shoot anything else. Don't be afraid to try them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most accurate round ever Shooting the inside of a dime out of my weather by vanguard s2 at 100yrds. Shot 2 deer so far with it. 1 head shot, 1 liver to the lungs hard quartering away shot, both DRT and both mature bucks. Both shots a little over 150 yrds. The bullet doesn't hold together for more than 12 inches but on a deer it doesn't need to, no meat damage on either deer. I bought 400 rounds of this stuff. I'm an avid shooter of 300win mag with ultra premium bullets, it will always stay home deer hunting now, this cheap round is plenty and wouldn't hesitate on a black bear lung or head shot less than 100 yrds. Buy this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent economical round After suffering a serious cervical neck injury that damage my spinal chord, I was no longer able to shoot my big boys calibers anymore. About all the recoil I could stand was a .223, but this just didnt have enough energy to ethically anchor the whitetails I sometimes shoot past 150 yards. After about a year of playing around with several smaller calibers that shot flat and had decent energy to 300 yards, I finnaly settled on a Remmy 700 in .243. After filling the stock with lead (add weight to the rifle to reduce recoil) I started testing loads. All loads tested initially were 100 grains. Even with these, I still felt an uncomfortable pinch in my neck when fired. Knowing that my Nuerosurgen warned me never shoot any riffles again larger than .223, I was totally broken hearted that my long range deer days were over. That was, until I started reading about the federal Power-Shok 80 grain having lower recoil while still having the ability to easily take whitetail deer. Well, I must say I am impressed. I can fire 10 or 15 rounds before my neck bothers me. This round will break shoulder bone on whitetail and still penetrate well past 200 yards. And the accuracy? Actually the best Ive ever seen from 98% of the riffles I have shot over my 30 years chasing whitetails. Extremly flat shooting round. Less than half inch groups at 100 yards. This round is totally amazing and extremely economical. It has saved my passion of being able to long range hunt......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent accuracy I just broke in a new Tikka T3 Lite using these. My plan was to switch to Barnes tipped triple shock in same weight for hunting. During the break in, not shooting for accuracy, but this federal gave sub MOA groups. After break in I switched to the Barnes - it might as well have been shotgun - groups (if you could call them that) were no better than 4 in!! Went back to the Federal for grouping and groups were, at the largest, dime sized - all rounds touching. Goodby Barnes- hello Federal!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent accuracy and vitals destruction. I am whitetail deer guide in Texas; we hunt managed trophy whitetail deer. I use a Nosler .243 to crop extra does; this 80 grain is excellent in accuracy , 1" at 100 yds consistently; also excellent in shoulder shot game with extensive damage to lungs, heart, vitals...I would recommend this load 100%.
