Fantastic deal on .308/ 7.62X51

If any of you guys are interested this is the cheapest I have ever seen .308 for.

CJ you might want to pick some of this up for plinking!

That is a good deal.


On a local note: CTD in McKinney has some 7.62x51 for 80$ for 200 rounds. Berdan primed junk. I bought some to see how it shoots.

I remember it being way cheaper.

But I'll probably buy a couple thousand rounds anyways.

Monarch 308 was 3.99 a box just a year ago. I expect it to keep dropping.

Was that brass cased? I would love to only pay 4 a box but I prefer brass cased.

Is the case metal (steel vs. brass) very important in a bolt action gun? It may not be very important in either but ever since I bough a box of steel cased monarch 223 and 1 out of 5 fired I have hated the stuff. I know that probably wasn't the case's fault, more likely the primer, but it just screams bad quality to me now.

In my opinion it makes no difference. As for reliability of the monarch, I never had a ftf in over 4k rounds. Might have been the primer depth or a worn firing pin. They do tend to be much dirtier, but i consider it great plinking ammo. 3.99 was steel.
