    Howa 1500 .308


    Anyone with any thoughts on the most accurate ammo for a Howa .308?

    I use Sako Gameheads in a 123grn. They are very accurate giving 1" groupings at 100 yards. I know that this is good but just wanted to know if anyone uses another brand that gives great results.

    When I had one federal 150grn power shock were very accurate. About 1/2" groups if I did my bit right!

    Cheers. Might try them next time round!

    We've been zeroing the Howa rifles we sell with RWS 150g Cone Points - they cover leaf at 100yds. Hope this helps.
    Best regards,

    Superb. Thanks for this as I only buy a box of rounds at a time and like to try different brands as and when I do a range session. Thanks

    "federal 150grn power shock were very accurate" - I also found that and followed closely by Privi

    Yes I have Howa 1500 308 and find the Fed 150 grain very good and for half the price the PPU do very well.
    For deer I do not think you can go wrong with the PPU if your rifle likes them but I have a lot of federal to use up first
