I've always run 180 gr. Remington Corelokt round nose through my Model 99. Last year I couldn't find any ammo in that loading, so ended up switching out to Federal stuff-to the tune of $40.00 a box! That's just crazy. Bit the bullet, contacted a friend who reloads, and we cooked up a good load that the gun shoots very accurately. It's a shame that I had to invest a few hundred dollars in reloading gear to get to this point, but 40.00 a box for what amounts to a glorified .308 load? Just nuts!mightyjoeyoung said:Or 7mm-08, .300 Savage is near impossible to find and priced to the point of lunacy now too.
