These are the Low Recoil loads. Note the lower FPS rating. I used these in my .308 Browning X-bolt and they are have significantly less recoil and give very similar ballistics, recoil and wounding as the old Winchester 30-30. As such this makes a pretty good round for kids and other recoil sensitive shooters.
That would give 5 stars, but there are some downsides to the ammo. First the ammo shoots about 8-10 inches lower (and about 5 inches to the right) than normal 150 grain Win .308 ammo by other manufacturers. So if you switch out to regular loads, be prepared to spend more time re-sighting in the rifle.
Next downside is that the ammo does not burn clean in the two rifles that it was tested, leading to more powder fouling than I expected. Fouling is not terrible, but it is more than Hornady loads and a bit more than Cor-Lokts.
I am still using this a the range to help me get my marksmanship improved. I think that I will eventually change out to regular 150 or 165 grain .308 ammo at some point, but this does a decent job for now.
