Hey everyone...
Does anyone know .308 Hirtenberger Ammo Ballistics? I am not even sure if it is 168gr. :?

Thanks for your help in advanced.

Why would you think it's 168gr?

7.62mm NATO is all ~150gr.

Hertenberger is medicore ammo in my experience. Not bad, nothing special. Don't pay extra for it with all the good Portugese, Austrailian, and South African 7.62mm NATO available.

I was offered some in battlepacks at a local dealer...He said 168gr???.. I knew it didnt sound right. I had about 1000rds a year ago that I purchased from AIM and it was 150gr.
I just thought something was going on that I didnt know about.

THANKS!!! :D

Hirt isn't NATO, its Austrian. Hirt makes ball ammo and match ammo. Are you talking about the match ammo, Doc?

PS Most NATO 7.62 ball ammo is 147gr, but the Aussie is 144gr. Go figure.
