Personally I like the Winchester Supreme AccuBond for my 7 Wsm. Best bullet I've ever used! Not availible in 308 or 280 (I dont think), so what do y'all think? I'll be choosing 1 of these calibers as my next rifle!

I handload, but Federal loads Barnes bullets.

I have always loved the Remmington Core-Lokt high velocity soft point for my 308. It has a large frontal area for greater impact. If I think I may be taking shots greater than 300 yards I switch to the pointed tip.

Well after standing in the store staring at about 10 diff kinds of .308 ammo I finally made my choice. Federal Premium 165gr Sierra Gameking BTSP. Anybody use those wanna gimme some feedback. I know I shot them and can drive tacks with them at 100 yds.

I friend of mine talked me into hand-loading a few years ago, and I haven't bought pre-loaded ammo since. It's not that the ammo is all that much better, but I tend to shoot a lot more. That first year I shot over 300 rounds, and got pretty good. I only shoot 20 to 30 rounds per year since then, because of time constraints, but I plan to do a lot more.

I like Nosler and Sierra products, particularly the Ballistic Tip and the Game King. I use the 130 gr BT in my .270 and have had great results except for the two times I screwed up on the shot. My son used the 150 gr BT in his .308; he had one experience where the bullet fragmented so badly that it left several small exit holes, but that was excusable. The buck was only 2 paces from his tree, and that bullet wasn't made for such high velocity at close range. We found the deer within 50 yards, so all is forgiven.

I like the ballistic silvertips for hunting. They have great expansion which really helps when you don't make that perfect shot.
