Federal Premium Power-Shok Centerfire Rifle Ammo
270 Power Shok
When I sighted in my new Savage 111 I tried several brands, weights and $$$ of ammo. The one that shot the best groups was the Federal Power Shok. I wasn't surprised as this was the case with my previous 270. Both the 130 and 150 grain were accurate with no adjustment to the scope. Opening day of deer season I shot a buck at 87 yards and he dropped straight down and did not move again. A doe at 93 yards and another at 137 yards had the same result. Straight down, no tracking. I was very pleased with the knock down power displayed by this simple round nose bullet. It may be cheap but it is accurate and deadly.

Used to be very good ammo
I used to shoot these all the time. I will be changing manufacturers for sure. The last box I bought was after the ammo craziness of 2013. I was shooting all over the paper at 300 yards when I used to touch 3 shots together. After examining the rounds that were left, there were 2 different primers, two different crimp styles, and could see visually not one bullet was seated at the same depth. I understand they have to kick ammo out like mad right now, but Id prefer a rise in price over decline in quality. Ill be shooting Hornadys from here. Its time to get some reloading equipment.

This ammo had nice groupings from my old Marlin 336 30-30. The Federal outperformed the old Remington ammo I had by a long shot. Can't beat the knock down power of this stuff. Easily took out a 100+ lb hog from over 110 yards. One shot to the neck, it went down quickly and cleanly.
Oh I am sure the Z Max/ LeveRevolution from Hornaday has better long range performance, but for where I shoot I only need about 100- 115 yards so I don't need the extra cost of the Hornaday (they make great ammo by the way) but for the price Federal Premium more than gets the job done.

Federal Power Shok .270win 130 gr
I have used this ammo as a go to load for hunting and accuracy testing for years. Very accurate in all firearms tested. Very lethal on deer. The best part is the inexpensive price for what I consider the best factory ammo at any price.
