    Wtb .308 ammo

    Wanting to trial a few different rounds through my 308 to see what it likes best as I just don't have the time to reload, anywhere from 5-10 rounds would be fine.

    Cheers

    I suggest a sample pack or two from Gunworks. If you start getting forum members to send various loads, then you are going to get swamped by police paper work

    Think I saw something on Trade me some company selling sample packs of loaded ammo selling lots of 5 or 6 rounds of different brands

    Is that the whole round? Or just projectiles?

    I'd suggest you just go try some of the Geco, it's cheap for the quality, shoots real well. Think there are 3 different options in 308 and some of it shot up to the top of the line Hornady and Federal match which is my benchmarks in 308 factory.
    Hard to beat hornady superperformance for hunting though, you can't handload ammo up to what that stuff will do.

    You sure you can't replicate a superformance round?

    No I haven't bothered trying, only going off what I've read online. It's not just a matter of using superperformance powder.
    No pressure signs with the factory stuff either.
    Do you have a load?

    Pull one apart weigh powder and projectile would be the place to start
