I see some 308 ammo for sale at the Pro Shop. Does anybody know what the grade C means?

It's because the tips of the 165ABs are bent.

Copy and pasted from SPS.

Nosler Trophy Grade 308 Win 165 Grain AccuBond (BLEM) - 20ct

Loaded with a AccuBond 165 Grain Spitzer Bullet and Nosler Cartridge Brass.

This ammunition is loaded with a 165 grain AccuBond bullet with a BENT TIP. This ammo did pass accuracy testing at 100 yards; BUT THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED. Look at the product image below to see how great the bend in the tip is.

NO RETURNS ON THIS PRODUCT.

It would definitely be acceptable accuracy for deer hunting at woods ranges of 50-100 yards.
I wouldn't hesitate to use it.
