    Hey Kevin!

    Thank you for your question. The Sterling .308 Win 147 Grain FMJ with brass cases is manufactured to high standards and should cycle effectively through a PTR/HK action, although PTR typically recommends steel case ammo. Brass cases generally offer smoother feeding and extraction compared to steel, which can be beneficial for maintaining your firearm’s condition over time.

    However, every firearm can have unique characteristics, especially when it comes to ammo preferences. It might be a good idea to try a small quantity initially to see how well it cycles in your specific PTR/HK setup.

    Q Ballistics please! answer now

    Sterling's .308 Winchester ammunition with a 147-grain Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) bullet is a popular choice for target shooting and practice due to its consistent performance and affordability. Here's a general overview of its ballistic characteristics:

    • Caliber: .308 Winchester
    • Bullet Weight: 147 grains
    • Bullet Type: Full Metal Jacket (FMJ)

    While specific ballistic data (like muzzle velocity, muzzle energy, and trajectory) can vary slightly depending on the specific lot or batch, you can expect:

    • Muzzle Velocity: Typically around 2,800 to 2,900 feet per second (fps)
    • Muzzle Energy: Usually around 2,600 to 2,700 foot-pounds (ft-lbs)
    • Trajectory: This depends on the rifle and sight setup, but generally, you can expect around a 2-4 inch drop at 200 yards when zeroed at 100 yards.

    These numbers can fluctuate based on factors such as barrel length, environmental conditions, and specific ammunition lot. For precise ballistic data, it's always best to consult the manufacturer's specifications or test the ammunition in your specific setup.

  4. First, your description of the Sterling 308 is for steel cased 7.62x39. I do not see in the actual description whether the 308 is Boxer or Berdan primed. Assuming this is British ammunition is it berdan?
