Definitely don't use a fmj bullet because most states it is illegal and the do not expand.

Ok first try win. super-x 150 soft points then the 180s
Next rem. Core lokt 150 and 180
Then the may hornadays

If you see the pattern yet its try the cheapest first and go up.
You are right, I have to retract that. Had something on my mind other that what I was entering. Yesterday was a long day here.

Lets go Federal 308, 168 grain SMK, BTHP

    Good or bad? Nosler customs and Trophy grade? The energy seems to be there out to 500 yrds but how are the actually bullets do the expand well?

    If you are shooting deer and your rifle likes them, I have had good results with Federal Premium 150gr Ballistic Tips.
