Hey, Researching the past hour or so and not finding the answer I'm looking for so thought I'd just ask. Have a new rifle coming. 308 24" w/ 1:11.25. Supposedly it prefers 175g and also does well with 168g. I've got some Federal Gold Medal Match .308 175gr Sierra MatchKing BTHP coming along too which is supposed to be great. I've read though, with mixed opinions, that reloading this brass isn't the greatest. (soft case and loose primers). My local range is 10min away and has 100-300yd and plan on going elsewhere to get longer distances. Purely target shooting. (for now) My question is: I was thinking about getting some bulk ammo with the idea that I'd save the brass and reload later as opposed to buying the components separately. Basically, buying it based on the fact that the brass would be great for reloading. (note: total newbie to reloading) Lapua is probably out of my price range, but the next few runner ups are probably more of my budget. Good or bad idea? If good, then what do you buy? Winchester, Lake City, etc? Any suggestions from who to buy from? Thank you very much for any guidance you can pass on to me. This site rocks.
