    Default Federal Premium 270gr Power Shok in 375

    I have 4 boxes of this factory ammo. Does anyone know anything about it? I am looking for anyone with personal experience.

    Personal experience with PowerShok in the .303 - it's good ammo. It's in the same class as Hornady InterLock or other good/decent cup-and-core bullets. If you have it, shoot it. Just steer clear of massive bone, IMO.

    if the bullet is good then that is a huge bonus - I am more interested in the brass. I will use them to hunt with now and then continue reloading after they are finished. FC brass is very good.

    Indeed. Happy hunting then, I guess? :)

    Federal load other/different manufacturers bullets in their cartridges.
    IIRC then the Power Shok soft nose bullet is either an Interlock or a gameking (which I would imagine would be a bonus for you Webster.)
    Federal do indeed make decent quality brass.

    I like the bullet and I reuse the brass always ...... IMHO great value for money , I used to find them for about R700 per box but I haven't seen them for some time now.

    Have used the cases in my .270 blue box for reloading. I have done many reloads at 3400 + loads. I am impressed with their reload ability.

    Ha ha Dale - you are not wrong! I think they are Interlocks though - in their own right good bullets! Hornady does not make rubbish so I will use them with respect and hunt some non dangerous stuff with them and keep the brass. I will be reloading the Sierra 300gr GK - already bought 200! I will also load the PMP 286 solids - they are as tough as can be.
