I agree with Rick Richard on factory ammo.You take a BIGGER chance of getting a less than stellar product from a factory rifle, which may be the reason the rifle was up for sale. Keep in mind, not all rifles factory or custom will shoot factory ammo in little bitty holes…just saying not to expect miracles with that factory ammo. Good luck on your venture.
I’m saving all my brass. Let’s put it that way. Once I get a couple hundred brass, my buddy told me that he will help me reload if I go out and buy a couple things.
