Well this gives you a taste as to what is out there. You may get lucky and find your rifle likes to shoot the Remington Core-Lokt at your local Wal-Mart. So start sending rounds down range and see what it likes.

    Very good start. I'd say you have a life-time rifle there.

    I don't understand you $ thinkin' though.

    I randomly selected some of the offerings liltank listed. 4 selections came to $151.46 or $1.89 per shot or 189.00 per 100. Ouch!! May as well be shooting a extreme magnum of some sort (Allen Mag or Snipe Tac)

    I'd figure that you will be into several hundred dollars in shells by the time you get sighted in, drop chart developed and enough practice to become confident for all your extreme range shots.

    Do some shopping around. I've seed RCBS JRs used for $40.00 in pawn shops. They were good ones too. No looseness in the ram. Select a bullet, a powder and primers. Do some "searching" for starting loads, ask questions here, and you'll get a leg up on things.

    If your not set up with a reloading room that's OK! The kitchen table will do. I even use a sturdy coffee table. Wife and I are in a short term apartment for awhile and I get along fine........for the most part.

    I built this gizmo in 1966. I has served me well since! As long as the wife isn't sewing when I wish to reload or otherwise use my stuff.
