    I notice the Federal Hi Shok prices in Walmart are way lower compared to WInchester Super Xs (rifle ammo). It s like $4 difference per box. How come ? ARe they known to be inconsistent or what ? Inferior components ?

    Just the opposite. I consider the Federal better. Of course it depends on what your rifle likes but the Federals usually use a Speer hot-cor or Grand slam bullet. The consistency is usually a bit better with Federal in my guns.

    One reason for the price difference may be that Speer has discontinued the hot-core and Federal may be trying to move them. I'd see what shoots in your gun but the Fed bullet will kill just as well as the Superx IME.

    Thx . Glad that Federal uses the Speer component which is topnotch.

    It's just pricing.

    The distributor got a better price form Federal than they did Winchester this week!

    Has nothing to do with one being better than the other.

    I like the Federal.

    The Winchester groups slightly better in my guns, but they are both good. Both do way better than Remington. Usually I find the Winchester is about $1 more than the Federal.
