Ammo for a .308 bulk?

I have a Savage 10 fcp-k on order and would like to get a stock pile of ammo started that will shoot well. Not sure if I should say match grade or not but would like it to hold around 1 moa. I see ammo in bulk on sites like sportmans guide. Get 500 rounds for something like 58 cents a round. Are any of them ammos ok to get? If so which or what should I be looking for. I will be more than likely be reloading in the future but for now would just like to have plenty of ammo on hand.

Side note. I have a millet trs-1 30mm scope that I will be mounting on it. Any recommendations for rings and a rail?

that stuff is just blasting fodder... it won't come close to living up to the potential of the rifle.

If you don't reload, check out Hornady's steel cased 155 grain stuff. Pretty good price, and it'll shoot well for you.

Hornady Manufacturing Company :: Ammunition :: Rifle :: Choose by Caliber :: 308 Win :: 308 Win 155 GR BTHP STEEL MATCH™

I think you can get it for 40 dollars or less for 50 rounds.

I send Federal Match with Sierra's downrange all the time. You can find it pretty cheap plus the brass is quite reloadable. I believe Natchezz has it on sale right now for cheap.
