    So I decided to pick up a Savage 110 FCP .338 Lapua today. What brand ammo can I go with if I don't want to dish out $140 for 20 rounds by Remmington? I'm just doing target shooting, no hunting, 500-1000 yrds.

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    Wow, just read the link to the HSM stuff... that's a good price. Too bad I wont find it that cheap in Canada EVER!!!

    Find a mentor and start the reloading adventure. Initial cost is an investment I have been reloading for 20 years and still use some of the first equipment I bought.

    Welcome to the 338 :D

    Any recommendations on the round grain? I'm thinking 250, or do I need to just try some and see what works best?
