 Sniper 308 Winchester Ammo - 175gr. Jacketed Hollow Point
20 Round Box



At the time of this writing, (04-05-11) Buffalo Bore has been making this 308 Win. Sniper load, for 8 or 9 years. It has become renowned for its accuracy and you can read independent third party test reports here. Until this time, I had neglected to write text on this web site for this load, so here are few particulars our customers may be interested in.

We do not produce this load for maximum velocity, but for maximum accuracy. Our production lots of this product vary in velocity as we search for the most accurate combination of powder/bullet/brass from varying lot #s. In my Springfield M1A National Match, (22-inch barrel) velocities from production batch to batch run between 2,640 fps and 2,700 fps.

While this load was developed for maximum long range accuracy, it has great value as a hunting load. The Sierra 175gr. Match King is a fairly soft bullet that Sierra does not recommend for hunting, however, at our 308 Win. impact velocities, it mushrooms nicely on deer sized animals. Of course, it mushrooms more violently at close range than it does at longer ranges. From 100 yards to 500 yards, it performs terminally just like you’d want a deer, black bear, antelope or hog bullet to perform. I would not shoot animals over 350 lbs with it, unless they were over 400 yards away, at which point the bullet will penetrate pretty deep because it is moving too slow to mushroom radically. This is a load I carry in my light weight bolt rifle (Kimber Montana) for general use and I have shot it a lot. If your rifle is accurate with this load, it is great for deer or hog hunting.

This load is safe for use in ALL 308 Win. chambered firearms that are in normal operating condition.

Update to previous review.

One box of ammo I received was shooting a little slower than the rest. Averaging a consistent 2680
FPS from my 24%u201D Kimber Open Country. After further chronograph testing all other boxes are averaging 2721 FPS. Shooting at 500 yds resulted in consistent .25-.5 MOA 5 shot groups. Ammo is superb.

Excellent ammo. Getting around 2700 FPS through a kimber open country. Give or take 10-15fps with 60 degree brass to 90 degree brass. Very consistent sub moa round with a little heat on her. Well done.

Tim, The ammo worked out great! My review of the rifle using your ammo can be found at the following link. I shot my best group ever with your 175-grain Sniper ammo. A 0.35" group at 100 yards. I am getting quite a bit of traffic at my site for people interested in my FNAR and I think these results speak volumes for your ammo. Thanks again! Kevin Cumbie

I have purchased bullets for reloading from a super guy named Frank from a company that produces the finest bullets on the planet in very large amounts from the finest equipment there is. He sells his bullets to a couple of bullet producers who load it in the very finest bullets on the planet for those of us who don't load our own, or don't always load for reasons of not having time to or as talened as those who do it every day like Buffalo Bore.
So I just want some of you who are not aware of this to know when you buy from B.B. that there is no better loaded ammo than what B.B. is selling you!!

I'm a PRS shooter and a ballistics freak. I'm shooting a Remington 700 5R with a 20 inch barrel, my FPS @ 852 elevation is 2688 avg, the SD was 9fps on a 5 shot string, and a 3/8 group at 100 yards!! Best Ammo ever!!

Hunters,marksman,tactical shooters,target shooters and once in awhile shooters. This is your round if your looking for the best look no further don't fuss with FGMM if you want maximum accuracy weather its a TC pro hunter or a 5-R this is your round the search is over for dependability and performance.

I love this ammo with my LMT .308mws 20in SS BB Match. I am getting consecutively 7in groups dead center on steel at 1,100 yards

First time out with my FNAR heavy barrel, breaking it in with inexpensive hunting ammo and pleased with shot groupings.

Zeroed scope, cleaned rifle, loaded the Buffalo Bore and proceeded to shoot a nice semi-auto five-round group: 4 holes were sub-MOA @ 100Y, 14X on scope, 15 mph quartering headwind. Quit while I was ahead.

Read about Buffalo Bore on Quinn's "Gunblast" website. Glad I tried it!

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
