Power-Shok Copper Adds .300 Win Mag & .300 WSM to the Mix

Power-Shok Copper

Federal introduced in mid-2016 a hybrid series of their staple Power-Shok featuring all copper bullets aptly named Power-Shok Copper. Its initial release debuted 4 standard hunting cartridges: .243 Winchester, .270 Winchester, .308 Winchester and .30-06 Springfield. Now Federal has added some heavy hitters with the .300 Winchester Magnum and .300 Winchester Short Magnum.

The basic characteristics and qualities of this ammunition are as follows:

  • Lead-free copper bullet construction
  • Hollow-point design expands consistently
  • Accurate, reliable performance
  • Large wound channels and efficient energy transfer to the target
  • Federal brass
  • Catalyst lead-free primer provides the most efficient ignition

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    I’m no great fan of shoulder cannons, but all-copper bullets do seem to need more speed to achieve similar expansion, wrt a similar leaded bullet. Making them naturals for calibers where velocity has traditionally been high.
