Hornady unveils the next generation of match ammunition—the Superformance .308 Win. 178 gr. BTHP Match. Achieving 2,775 feet per second from a SAAMI spec 24" test barrel, this new load is approximately 175 fps faster than any comparable commercial load available. Topped with the new 178 gr BTHP Match bullet featuring a .530 ballistic coefficient, this Superformance offering provides industry leading ballistic performance.

Remaining supersonic to approximately 1,275 yards, this new load provides a 200 to 250 yard advantage over anything else currently available in 308 Winchester. Because Hornady incorporates its Superformance technology, there is no increase in pressure, barrel wear or felt recoil. It also offers incredible temperature stability and excellent accuracy potential.

"When we combine this high B.C. match bullet with our Superformance propellants, the result is a completely new load specifically designed to maximize every aspect of the 308 Winchester." -Dave Emary, Hornady Senior Ballistician.
