Video Transcript:

Federal Ammunition has been in business since 1922. They've produced billions of rounds of ammunition for both the civil and military markets, and their parent company ATK is contracted to run the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. This plant is where almost all of the small arms ammunition used by the US Military is produced.

There are many types of ammo on the market, and they all serve different purposes. Some are good for high volume training or practice, while others are good for hunting or self defense. Some ammo is made to be affordable in bulk, where quality control might suffer slightly, but the cost justifies the performance. The flip side of that coin is ammo with high levels of quality control, the performance of which justifies its cost.

Target shooters and competitors don't have many choices when it comes to factory ammunition, because there are only a few types of factory ammo that can deliver the kind of precision they're looking for. Consistently, one of the best factory loads is Federal Premium's Gold Medal Match line of ammo. For example, take Federal's 168 grain 308 Gold Match load, which is ideal for target shooting out to 800 yards. You'll often see it used by serious competitors at 600 yard matches, and it also makes shorter-range target shooting much easier. It's been a standard load for law enforcement snipers, too, because of its consistency. I've been shooting long range matches for years, and in all of the rifles I've shot this ammo in, it has allowed the rifle to shoot to its highest potential.

This ammo features a Sierra MatchKing bullet, which is one of the best bullets for target shooting in the world. It has a lead core with a copper jacket, but unlike other bullets, the jacket is reverse-drawn. A reverse-drawn jacket results in an opening at the front of the bullet instead of the rear, which allows for a small hollow point as well as a very consistent boat-tail shape. What this means is that the bullet flies through the air with very little resistance. It is less affected by wind and drops less at long range than other bullets. So it's going to go right where you tell it to.

The case used for Federal Gold Match ammo is specially drawn for match purposes. It goes through a process called annealing, which is a heat treatment which makes the brass more workable during manufacture and has the added benefit of lasting longer if you reload.

In addition to the match bullet and the top-quality case, Federal has stringent manufacturing controls that ensure things like uniform powder charges and consistent bullet seating depths. These things, along with the use of Federal match primers, are the key to the accuracy of this ammunition. If these factors differ from round to round, you will have larger groups, but with this ammo, each round is just like the one next to it, and you'll shoot the smallest groups you possibly can.

Whether you're looking to win a shooting match, a bet with a friend, or you just want to see how well your rifle can shoot, you can count on Federal Premium Gold Medal Match ammunition.

Finally Review by Mr308
Performance

I am a newbe to long range shooting, but have been an avid shooter sportsman for the last 34 years.
Being a steady shot otherwise, I could not achieve better than 1.5 MOA at one hundred yards using other ammo. Sending the rounds down the pipe of my Savage 10-T tactical, scoped with a Nightforce NXS, I had the tools to do the job. But after many trails, only this ammo gave me the results. So until I learn to reload my own, I'm buying this ammo so as to be able to continue my 1" MOA groups at 200 yards! Really made the difference for me. (Posted on 7/13/14)

I have been shooting lots of different ammo from my CMMG 308 with mounting frustration until trying these rounds. Finally, accuracy and consistency. I was a hero on the range today after weeks of embarrassment using cheaper rounds. I was wondering whether I had just purchased a lemon for a rifle. I guess you get what you pay for.

Very hard to beat. Review by Patrick

This ammo is very consistent and accurate. I have shot it out of a Remington milspec 5R with a 20 inch barrel, and it produces half moa all day long. I have put it up against many different brands and for cost found it to be the best hands down. It also does very well in a springfield scout m1a. (Posted on 2/19/14)

Excellent round. Consistent sub MOA hits. A little pricey, especially as of late. But if consistent accuracy is what you seek, and time consuming reloading is not your thing, this is the round for you. (Posted on 12/18/13)

This ammunition is top drawer to say the least. With my match grade M1A and this 308 - 168 gr HPBT Federal Premium Sierra Match King Gold Medal ammunition, I can't miss. Non stop consecutive hits at 400 to 440 yards at 6" bull eyes. Look out man. (Posted on 12/16/13)

Sub MOA (.91") from LT 18" tOBR with Field Grade barrel. Expecting that to only get better. (Posted on 11/14/13)

Great sub Moa results from a kimber lightweight at 100-200yrds. Have achieved under 1/8 '' at 100 with these. I bet the 175 would be better at the longer ranges (over 300) if similar accuracy is required.
No excuses when hunting with this stuff, worth the money. (Posted on 3/24/13)

This round is excellent. It's very consistent and hard hitting. It works great as a match round or as a long range hunting round. An excellent round, if you can afford it. (Posted on 3/1/13)
Excellent precision ammo Review by DSC in Raleigh
Quality
Performance

Just like the 77gr .223 Federal GMM I've shot, their 168gr .308 is outstanding. It's a bit pricy for plinking, but if accuracy and consistency counts it's pretty reasonable at $1.20/round. I shot this through a friend's Kimber LPT and managed sub-1/2 MOA at 150 yards. I shoot it now through my new Tikka Tactical and routinely shoot 1/3 MOA or less at 150 yards. It also leaves the bolt face and barrel very clean even after shooting 40 consecutive rounds. I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for highly accurate .308 ammunition. The 175gr version also shoots extremely well, pick whichever weight your rifle likes best and you won't be disappointed with the results. (Posted on 6/6/12)
