$55 a box for Lapua Factory from www.Midsouthshooterssupply.com and Armalite has the same price, Armalite has access to the 300gr bullets that Midsouth does not.

Lapua Brass is still $1.30 a piece... maybe that will drop down to .80 cents in the near future?

Finally got it...HS Precision in 338 Lapua. Now for the difficult question, where is a good source for ammo.
My FFL says he can get it for $100 per 20, but ther has to be a better deal somewhere.

Mongoose,
Have to agree with Bounty Hunter. Going with pre-manufactured (factory) ammo for a rig like you've just purchased for yourself is ********! You'll never get the accuracy possible with fine-tuned hand-loads. Call Graff & Sons or Sinclair International for components. My recommendation is that you get your yourself some Lapua brass and Lapua 250-grain Scenars. Then start with 88.5 grains of VV N560 behind the subject projectile 0.020 off the lands. You should get a mean initial velocity of 3000-3050 fps and **** good accuracy (i.e. sub-3/4 MOA)!

Regards,
Dave

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
