    Ammunition recommendation

    Hey guys, just picked up my first rifle. It's a 7mm08 Remington 700 sps stainless. Are there any other guys that own one? What ammo did you find worked well? (Not sure if that will be the same across the board, or if each rifle is particular to the rounds it likes) I can't afford to go buy multiple packs of different factory ammo, but guess I will over time if I need to.

    Best to stock with what your local stores have in ready supply. No point getting a brand that is near impossible to find elsewhere.

    Get a pack of hornady and federal, one of them is bound to go well in your rifle.
