Winchester 308 130gr and 180 gr Woodleigh Protected SP

Factory 308 rounds, with these projectiles and at $21 for a box of 20. Not sure i could reload much cheaper.

Anyone here used it and care to share their review, good or bad?
My choice is what I choose to do, and if I'm causing no harm why should it bother you?

I have always been impressed with the performance of Woodleigh projectiles, albeit in larger calibers. Very good price for loaded rounds.

I have used woodleigh 180's in a 300wm very successfully, they are a very accurate projectile that puts big animals down quickly
but I have seen them pencil through thin skinned game :thumbsdown:
the 130's is more what I would go for in a 308 but they fall out of the sky past 300
highly recommend woodleigh's as long as your rifle shoots them straight :drinks:

I have used 400 grain Woodleigh Weldcores and they have proved to be really good rabbit stoppers, never once needed a follow up shot.
