So, suck it up and buy a few thousand rounds of Winchester white box, shoot it and start reloading.


I've usually found that most guys who balk at a few dollars a box for good ammo will invariably stop at the pub after shooting and blow $20 or more for
craft beers and Buffalo wings.

It's all where you spend your discretionary cash at.

My magnificent rifle gets the best money can buy. Unless , of course the wife has other plans.
Agreed, it's the deep pockets club. Spent more on this gun than any other. That forged receiver cost me way too much!

A final thought regarding the steel cased stuff. The case is mild steel. It has to be "soft" steel for the case to obturate the chamber without cracking. It is much softer than the hardened steel that the extractor is made from. Should not do any immediate damage at all.

Badger

Cheap match ammo is an oxymoron.

If you want inexpensive match ammo, you have to load it yourself; and even here, it is not that inexpensive. My M1A match grade ammo is currently costing me $0.42 a pop.

If you go for cheap stay away from the Pakistan stuff. Never had any luck with it and their QC is done by a blind guy.

Target ammo or range ammo? When I think target, I think Match Grade; range I think Plinking.

All depends on what you feel is expensive. Expect to pay at the minimum a dollar a round for Match ammo, anywhere from .50 to 70 cents for "NATO" ammo, steel case, a bit less. As a caveat you can sometime get good deals if you buy in bulk.

FWIT, if you reload for match ammo, there is a nominal price break, none if you factor in your time as good match ammo is loaded one round at a time.

I have the handheld Lee press. Prob same or similar to what you have. I use it as a single stage bench press by clamping one side firmly in the jaws of a large vise I have bolted to my bench and working the other half over the top of the vise. It works fine and is a lot less awkward than trying to use the thing two handed.

SGAmmo has good service and generally pretty good prices on .308. You can also leverage the Freedom Munitions brass credit program to really get your cents per round down (especially when they are running flat rate/free shipping promotions). Basically you mail in your spent brass and they credit your account by the pound. Current rate (as of today) was $1.40/lb. Definitely use USPS flat rate boxes...

The German MEN ball is pretty good stuff accuracy wise and won't completely rape your wallet. A lot of people bash ZQI/MKE ball but I've already posted pics of a 5 shot group that measured right at 1.5" at 100 here from my standard M1A and irons.

For NRA/CMP matches the American Eagle 168 OTM is supposed to be the economy line of match ammo for the M1A but at $20/box you're still looking at $80 just to shoot a 50 round match, considering sighters and/or alibi strings. Save your brass!

Slickguns.com, gunbot.org, ammoseek.com.....just saw PPU for about $.47 a round.
Gotta shop around...if you can find it for around .47 and free shipping your wife will be proud of you.....well, that may not be true.

There used to some German 7.62x51 plastic training ammo around. It was ten cents a round. Won't cycle the action, but it's still fun.

Check SGAmmo. They have DAG for around .50 a round.

Wolf and cheap ammo shoots great in mine. If you are measuring group sizes then you'll want to use better stuff but just for enjoying shooting and doing drills, go cheap. I actually get pretty good groups with Wolf anyway
