    Default Difference between vital shok and cape shok

    I found two boxes of federal premium 375 H H one labeled vital shoc the other cape shoc. Both are 300 grain nosler partition and both have are marked P375f. Is there any difference between the two or are they the same round. Thanks

    Are they both brass cased? Cape shok should be nickel.

    they are both nickel. Everything looks the same. I wonder if it is just a odd ball box. The cape shoc has a cape buffelo on it and the vital shoc has a elk or maybe I would never of noticed. didnt know if beteen the two each had a different charge to them.

    Those are both marketing designators, I suspect an intern mis-marked one and they shipped them anyway rather than pay to re-label a bunch. My guess only of course...

    Cape shock is a partion bullet, and vital shock is a bear claw design (solid base)
