I am relatively new to stalking and have been using Federal Classic (Power Shock) 130g with my Tikka T3 .270.
Whilst at a rifle range, an experienced instructor made the following comment to me: "Don't know why you're using that ammo, it's $hit! - I wouldn't have it if it was given to me".
I understand the chap is a self-loader and no doubt considers his "home brew" to be far superior, however, is there any merit in his obvious distaste with this classic American beauty?
P.S. Needless to say he was happy to take my empty shells!
