FGM762M2

Any feed back on this round?

Looking for a replacement for the ADI 168gn SMK I use now that I'm pushing the range out- while trying to avoid reloading.

Federal's website suggest there is no ballistic difference to their FGM308M2.

Someone else suggested it's surplus contract M118LR.

...it's absolute shiite...you all should give it to me for proper disposal..

I do appreciate the good advice I get here...

 ..pretty much the same or similar experience..168gr was of choice till around second half of the first decade of 2000...168gr still awesome till around 600-800 ish then 175 gr rules..for a variety of reasons my M1A platforms doesn't really like the heavier grains but I rarely shoot those...honestly don't really shoot .308 for my bolt guns anymore..just my semis....with the good choices like 6.5mm, .300 and various flavors of .338.  I think .308 is still great for DMR apps but it has been eclipsed by 6.5 Creedmoor which cost the same more or less to shoot...minus the barrel wear of course.
