Received 500 rounds of 147g jacketed ammo in the mail. I ordered the PMC bronze .308. This ammo has good reviews and should work just fine for the 100 - 150 yard ranges around here.
Plus an order of Tubbs finishing ammo is on the way. The range is calling me!

Could someone please provide the link for posting pics on this site? I am trying to put one up, but it never uploads. It is probably too large. I just don't know the size constraints.

Check out slickguns.com, for some prices.
I should have gone to slickguns first! Great pricing there. Oh well. He isn't that good of a friend I guess. Lol!

Thanks from Jim bowie

Are you going to note accuracy before and after the tubbs lapping?

I don't know if I am accurate enough as a shooter to make a statement. Keep in mind, this is my first high powered rifle. My .22s are all dialed in nicely. I am a noob here. Never shot an M1A. I've shot the Garand and some other 30 cals. Just trying to do the right things with this purchase. Right now the outdoor ranges are open, but we have Spring sloppy cold conditions here. I thought about using the local indoor 20 yard rifle range just to fire off the lapping rounds with no account on accuracy.

I did see the tubbs ammo does have some reviews which note the rounds are not numbered as to which grit each is. Just a heads up. The tubbs bullets that have to be reloaded have better reviews.

To the OP, I think you're friend gave you a pretty good deal at $1500. I couldn't find any cheaper online for a walnut stock. I bought the same one back in November, she is a great rifle. enjoy
