Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't believe it myself; the round is simply amazing. I'm not a seasoned precision shooter by any means but this ammo is fantastic. I don't reload so finding a store bought round that shoots this well in my new rifle is simply wonderful. I'm shooting the Gold Medal® 308 Win. Sierra® MatchKing BTHP out of my Sig Sauer SSG 3000 at 50 yds (only available range so far). With math I found on the internet, I took my 1/2" overall group, subtracted .308" bullet diameter and plugged that into my MOA Shooters App on my iPhone. The MOA came out to .37 MOA. I've attached a picture. I think this will be my "go to" round for now. Thanks for reading. Russell

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Velocity deviations from lot to lot is dreadful Bought 400 rounds from two different gun stores. I ended up with three lots. Two of the lots were pretty close in velocity. 2550 and 2520. The last lot of 200 rounds are all coming in under 2450, in fact I'd be happy with 2450. I'm shooting a Remington 700 and this deviation makes it impossible to use this ammo. Federal needs to get this fixed and ASAP or I'm done with this ammo. When one box is 11.2mil to 1000 yards and the next box is 13.1mil.... there is a massive problem here and this needs to be addressed. Not to mention the wind was having a field day. Again switched lots and was hammering the 20inch plate. Any ideas Federal???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The standard by which my reloads are judged I am convinced this is the absolute best factory ammo on the market. I used a Rem 700 SPS Varmint (1:12 twist with a 26 inch barrel) to put a 5 shot group of 0.75 inches at 100 yards with the 168 gr 308's. I fired about 35 more times (I was breaking in the rifle and testing some different loads) and ended the day with a three round group of no separation! I put three rounds in the same hole! These rounds set the standard for my reloads. My goal when reloading is to make a load that can match the performance I get out of the federal gold medal match stuff. Even though I found a load that can meet it (42.3 gr of RE-15 and Sierra 168 Mk), I still keep a few boxes of this stuff around just in case. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gold Medal Berge in RPR 6.5 Creedmoor- Rocks! I have a new Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. I was trying several bullet weights to see which shot best in my rifle. I happened to find a box of the Gold Medal Berger in 130 Gr. After a few fowler rounds, I shot three consecutive rounds through one hole at 100 yards. I moved to the 200 yard range and the next 3 were 1/2 MOA. I have to question my ability to reload 6.5 Creedmoor , when I can buy ammo this accurate and not spend the time and cost of the additional reloading dies and additional items to make accurate ammo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Yardstick that all others are measured with! The FGMM 308 168 (and 175gr) is literally the "golden ruler" to which all others are measured. While I'm a very devoted handloader, I have boxes and boxes of FGMM on hand. I use FGMM as a starting point after buying or building a new rifle. If a rifle can't shoot FGMM ammo, there is something wrong with the rifle - seriously, it isn't the ammo. I've had dozens or rifles, all with different barrel lengths and twist rates, and from different manufacturers shoot sub-MOA with FGMM.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely THE best factory Ammunition available! I shoot a Ruger M77 MkII .308 target model. shooting the factory barrel with an added compensator and some customization to the stock... that's all. After shooting grain weights from 150 to 180 from 10 different loadings and 6 manufacturers, I found that Federal's Gold Medal Match 168 grn ammo was hands down, the most accurate I tried! 9-29-12 shooting in Albuquerque, NM at nearly 6000 ft elevation, 65 degrees, and 9 o'clock 10 mph wind, off a bi-pod and rear mono-pod, I shot a 3 shot, 200yd group that measured .587" center to center! This ammo routinely shoots sub half moa out of my rifle. When you factor in the cost being 2/3 of several premium brands that don't shoot as well... It's a no brainer! Federal's 168grn GMM is unbeatable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Outstanding I am a retired police officer. I was assigned to the swat team for over 14 years as a sniper. I tested a number of different rounds and the Federal Gold Medal Match consistently out performed all the others I tested. The 168 grain would group at less than a half inch at 100 yards, over and over AND over again. I never had a malfunction caused by the ammunition. I can tell you I put a lot of these rounds downrange. I shoot it exclusively in my Remington 700 SPS Tactical with a 20 inch barrel.

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!!
