Hi guys, I'm fairly new to hunting and never fired a shot at an animal as of yet, I have a .308 rifle which I'm using so I know it'll do the job. My question is do I really need to be getting the best and most expensive ammo out there, I've been looking at the Hornady precision hunter and others like that. But now I'm wondering if those are really just marketing hype, Federal makes some ammo that are almost half the price and I know they make good reliable ammo. I'll mostly be hunting hogs and maybe some deer and I think that a soft point round like Federal power shock 180gr should be more than sufficient to take down any hog, plus as thick as the woods are in the area I'm hunting (Palm Beach, Fl) the longest shot would be around 150 yards. So to you guys who have more experience than me, what are your thoughts about these expensive ammo, are they really worth the price. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
