SHOT16: Is the Liberty Ammo .308 Win the fastest yet?

Liberty Ammunition has made one hell of a zippy .308 round. It will be interesting to see how different twists stabilize such a light round.

Liberty Ammo .308 Win

Liberty Ammunition is unveiling the first hunting round, the .308 Winchester, in their new Animal Instinct ammunition line at the 2016 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 19 – 22, 2016. The Liberty Ammunition .308 Win is the fastest at 3,500 FPS, and exits a rifle with a muzzle energy of 2,700 FPE. This lead-free copper monolithic, fragmenting hollow-point Liberty Ammunition round is the next generation of one of the most popular hunting and long range rounds in existence.

“Animal Instinct ammunition is optimized to deliver the most extreme energy transfer at impact, while still providing exceptional penetration, giving hunters that ‘ONE & DONE' capability they seek,” Matt Phillips, VP of Sales and Marketing for Liberty Ammunition explained. “Animal Instinct's match grade accuracy and noticeable low recoil allows the hunter to be more proficient while making the shooting/hunting experience more enjoyable.”

The .308 Winchester was introduced in 1952 as a sporting round to fit a standard short-action rifle. The highly accurate round quickly found favor with big game hunters and shortly thereafter was adopted by the U.S. Military for the M14 rifle. The new Liberty Ammunition Animal Instinct .308 Win. is lighter than its competition at 100 gr.  Animal Instinct .308 delivers more lethality in a flat shooting round with match grade accuracy, all in a low recoil, easy to manage package.
Hunters, law enforcement officers and military operators alike, will all benefit tremendously from Liberty Ammunition's Animal Instinct line, providing them pinpoint accuracy, significant increase in lethality, and low recoil for more control

If you want to learn more about this round or the other planned rounds in the Animal Instinct line head on over to booth numbers 1916 or 7006.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
