Default 110 ba

I am interested in the 110 ba but I'm not sure if I should be looking at the .308,.300,or the .338. I will be shooting about 1000yards. And I won't to make sure I'm using the best round at that range.

Whats the difference in the .338 Lapua .338 rem .338 federal I looked up the ammo price and the lapua was 80-120 for a box of 20 and the others about 50 I'd rather not pay 100 for 20. And would the 300 do good at that range.

The 338 lapua is a long range military round that can be used for other uses and the 338 rem,win mag,and federal are hunting round. And there is a lot of people that use the 300 for long range shooting plus its a lil cheaper then the 338s to shoot so I say pick the 300 instead of the 338 in my opinion

That's what I was thanking about doing the lapua was average $100 a box of 20 that's ridicules. But it will chamber all those .338 kind of like a .223,5.56 thing right.

The .338 lapua is by far the most accurate at 1,000+ yards. Once you have the brass the .338 is slightly more to reload than a 300 win mag. my friend has a 110 BA in .338 and they're very accurate at 1500+ the initial investment in ammo cost is more but if I was going to buy one it would be the Lapua.

That would be fine if I did my own reloading which I am going to start doing. I actually wonted the .338 to begin with. If I can wait and start reloading before I comment it will be the .338 but if the intensity is to much and I can't wait that long .300. But I do won't the best accuracy and range. Do you know what the cost is to reload the lapua.

I'm not 100% sure. We reload out 300 win mags with Nosler bullets and it costs roughly $1.00 each round. so I would guess the lapua between 1.50 and 2.00. I'll ask my buddy tomorrow I'll be at his house. I'm not saying the .300 isn't going to be an accurate round at 1000 yards my dad shoots a ruger M77 with a 3-9 scope and killed his deer at 741 yards last year. Either way you really can't go wrong both are excelent rounds.

No the 338 lapua can not be mixed with other 338 cuz they all are different in one way or another.

the reason u can shoot 223 in a gun that is chambered in 5.56 is cuz the 223 is the same as the 5.56 just not as hot but if u shoot a 5.56 in a gun chambered in 223 then u got problems cuz of pressure difference between the two

I hope I explained that clear for u to understand lol
