Re: needing/wanting new rifle

I would get what you want. It may take some looking/ digging but some ammo is out there. I saw half a million 308 and 223's this weekend at a show. Searching thru a couple LGS I have found a few here and there. If you reload, I even scored a couple bags of 308 brass. The store had 7RM , 300winmag, 25-06, 7-08 and a couple others. Good luck seems like hunting for supplies will fill the void of no open season for game right now.

Re: needing/wanting new rifle

im just having a hard time narrowing down what i want. a 308 or 223 would be cheaper to shoot but i like the kick of the magnums. now dont get me wrong i could get a cheap 308 and a cheap 300 win but lately i have found myself going more towards quality guns instead oof quantity. heck i even kicked around the idea of getting a S&W 460 xvr.

You may want to look at 300WSM. For whatever reason, it seems like brass is everywhere . . .

Long term, I agree with the above poster - get what you want and you will find the components you need.

Unless, of course, you choose 7 saum. I'm looking at $1.00 per each, used.
Think I'll keep lookin'

Can't even find 7 SAUM around here. I only have 40 rounds for mine. Not enough.

I've got 50 7 saum and 50 7/300 saum and that's it.

This brass better last me or I will try making it out of 300 wsm.

Got some bags of that.
