That's the main reason I was looking for a .223 in the first place. (still waitting on the money for that) I like the fact I can get 100 rounds for about .50 a piece. That's why I ruled the 22-250 out as well. Haha

But all in good time I'll probably have one

I know, but I'm a little to cheap to pick up a press and dies righ now. Hana

My pays aren't exactly to great and I also don't have any center fires yet except for the 12 gauge that I pretty much just bought. So as of now, a reloading kit would be a little useless. Haha

Haha well maybe I do make more then you do. But still not enough to justify buying a loading kit for the time being. But I think when I get at least two centerfire rifles I'll take a serious look at a kit.

Plus have you checked the price of 250 ammo it's not to bad for cheap range ammo but then again I can buy two boxs of 06 ammo for the price of a box of quality hunting loads witch I don't even shoot much

I haven't checked FMJ prices for 22-250 at all. I haven't seen them at my Walmart since they tend to deal more with hunting ammunition. So basicallyive got the most common rounds to pick from so long as their either HP or SP. it's why I was surprised to see a couple boxes of Winchester .223 FMJ.

EDIT had a spelling mistake. Haha

Remington express is the cheapest I found but then there Winchester white box with 40 round for 30 something but I don't shoot them cuz my gun can't stand them plus I always for get my dang ear plugs when I shoot so I tend to shoot a box a trip cuz that s.o.b will make your ears ring till the next day lol

Ooh, well I might look into a .22-250 a little more then. It seems like it would be good for coyote out to around 200yards and the taking gophers at maybe 100-150 yards.

I know what you mean about needing ear plugs though. I usually only shoot .22s when I go to the range since that's all I've had up until Saturday, but I've had a couple guys come down with their 250s and wholie thief one loud rifle. It almost feel like you get hit with the sound wave as bad as when my buddy bring his 7mm rem may out.
