Re: First long range rifle: Savage?

A good factory load is one you put together yourself with brass primers, powder and bullets you chose ...... You missed stating the caliber ?

Primers are currently an issue unless you can walk into your LGS and they have them sitting on the shelf. Powder is kinda difficult too, but not as ridiculous as a few months ago. Grafs.com has both loaded ammo and reloading stuff. Their shipping is pretty timely unless you include powder and primers.

Wideners has a lot less stuff than they used to and their website is harder to navigate, but I always check them anyway.

Re: First long range rifle: Savage?

My apologies, 300 win mag. I would love to be able to reload but that is going to be down the road a bit. For the time being I would just like to find a factory load with MOA accuracy. Hopefully this is not unreasonable without having to spend $50+ per box. I will be saving the brass to reload when the time comes. Thank you for the reloading info.

If the rifle is sound, I don't think you will have much trouble finding a 1MOA factory load, maybe better. Under $50/box, might be harder these days. You may have to test a few different types/brands of ammo. If you plan on shooting any kind of volume, you might reconsider reloading. 5-10 boxes of factory ammo gets you close to break even. iMHO.
