Re: accurate inexpensive 308 bullets

Missing is a very expensive past time. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

155gr Amax work great for me. I also shoot alot of 165grSST at LR and they are superb. A bit strong for a yote at LR though. I would prefer the Amax beyond 300yds.

Look for sales and buy bulk.

Re: accurate inexpensive 308 bullets

Some cheap 180 bullets that have a pretty high B.C. are those Speer hot core bullets. I have found in my 338 RUM the 200 Speer Hot Core bullets do 3260 FPS. So I got some 180's for my 300 also.

Re: accurate inexpensive 308 bullets

A few years ago my shooting buddy bought a box of IMI Samson 168grn match grade FMJs, if i remember correctly they were $18 for a 250 count box.
Performance was very good but he did not like the cannelure.
