I used the .308 Winchester Failsafes several (ok, many) years ago and these were one of the best bullets I've ever seen for "on-game" performance in the .308 Winchester. I had a nice run of uniformly dead critters with them and they performed great in the .308 velocity range.
Of course, discontinued, my stock depleted and they're long gone now- Winchester replaced it with the XP3 bullet which has been out a while now. Have many of you folks used the XP3 on game and found it to be comparable to the old FS? I tried them in my .300WSM and my rifle just plain didn't like them- so I never got around to killing anything with them and eventually traded them off.
I'm setting up a new .308 rifle for my son and so far it doesn't like Accubonds- which is unusual since I've gotten them to shoot lights out in everything else. I'd like to get the rifle zero'd with one good premium factory load without resorting to trying a half dozen of so. Figured I'd start on somewhat familiar territory.
