    Ammo non-existent!
    Lo and behold!
    Ammo at Customer Service.
    I couldn't see the stock, but a clerk asked what caliber I was looking for.
    6.8mm / No
    .308 / No
    "What do you have?"
    .223 - 5.56 - .22 -7.62×51....
    Did you say 7.62×51?
    Two boxes of Fed 149 gr FMJ, $21.99/ea.

    So it's NOT the stores doing the price gouging. Well, not Academy anyway.
    Hmmm, I'm not interested in FMJ for the .308 Win. My plinking is done with rimfire.

      I didn't have any need nor desire for FMJ ammo, but I need the brass. 😀!
      I'll load it with some Sierra 150gr BTSP bullets I have.

        How much you need? I might be your Huckleberry.

          Need?
          That's like asking, "How long is a piece of string?".
          Don't you have a .308?
          You know .308 can be necked down to .243. I know you have one of those.

            My FiL does but I do not. While I plan to load him a few boxes with the components he gave me the fact is he's not a shooter and I probably won't do much development beyond minimum loads if his gun shoots them reasonable. And I'll want to do the testing. He probably has enough factory ammo to last him several years as it is. He actually has two .308's, a Ruger American that's now his go to and a Win 100. I don't want to set him up with hot loads that might get run in the autoloader someday and won't have control of what ends up where. If he uses what I roll I'll just load the brass again.


            At this point I'd rather not mix headstamps either, especially with the 7mm-08 in the safe.


            Pretty sure I can spare some, not all of it came from his stash as well.
