Federal Vital Shok Trophy Copper Rifle Ammunition -
Tipped bullet cavities offer consistent expansion across a broad range of velocities for devastating downrange performance. Grooved shanks increase accuracy in a wider range of firearms. Polymer tips and boattails increase ballistic coefficient for higher velocity, energy and less drop. The copper-alloy design achieves up to 99% weight retention even after deep, aggressive penetration and expansion. Nickel-plated cases prevent corrosion and aid in easier, faster extraction. Made in USA.

Federal Vital Shok Trophy Copper Rifle Ammunition Reviews:


Highly performing & environmentally friendly

I used 180 gr Federal Trophy Copper on my .30-06 Tikka T3 Laminated Stainless and was impressed with its performance. In sighting target shooting I was able to group bullets within 1 inch at 100 yds, and 2.5 inches at 200 yds (~4 inch drop, with rifle zeroed at 100 yds and 1.5 inch high). At moose hunting, I instantly dropped a ~700-lbs (whole body) individual at 120 yds, with one bullet at the nape of the neck. The bullet went through the skull and lodged in the upper part of the jaw (this is what the butcher told me). It’s difficult to say what the weigh retention was, as I couldn’t recover the bullet. However, it certainly went through at least 10 inches of thick skin, neck muscles, a vertebra, and very hard head-bones, thereby suggesting both, high weigh retention and deep penetration power. In equal circumstances, a Federal Nosler Partition bullet would have most likely provided a performance similar to the Trophy Copper’s. However, I prefer the latter for it does not have a lead core, which raises human health and environmental concerns. Moreover, according to Federal’s Web site, the Trophy Copper has slightly better ballistics at long range shooting (e.g. velocity and energy conservation, and trajectory). This will certainly be my first choice bullet in the future, for large (180 gr) and medium (165 gr) game.

Accurate and Deadly

Chambered this in my 300 WSM for my first elk hunt. Dropped a bull at 420 yds. Passed through both lungs and exited out the front shoulder. The elk staggered for about 10 feet and dropped. Will be using this in the future in other calibers.

Accurate Hunting Cartridges

I bought the Trophy Copper for my .300 win mag with the 180 grain bullets. I was able to shoot better groups
with this ammo than any other that I have tried. The specs on these cartridges are pretty impressive and they are reasonably priced.

Great Groups with knockdown power.

Sub MOA 3 shot groups in my Winchester model 70 300 WSM. Deep penetration.
