Default Ammo pricing - .270WIN

Gents,

I would like to lay in some ammo to shoot this spring and summer. Sight in my new Leopold 4-12x40; Target shoot, kill the odd cayote, blow some time at the range, understand my long range ballistics, etc.

The gun and scope need to be tip top by September 29th, at which point I leave for Douglas to take advantage of the misteps of the mule deer and antelope out there.

I have been looking for a place to get a buy on ammo for my .270 win. I can't find anything that's a real deal. Sportsman's guide I guess, is the best I've seen.

Any recommendations?

Default Cheap 270 ammo

For factory ammo try closeouts at cabelas or midway or even your local discount department store. If none of those have it try www.cheaperthandirt.com

From all you've listed you want to accomplish it sounds like you should be handloading (it's not reloading by the way, that's what you do when you top off a mag and such). You won't find any "real deals" as you say on the good ammo you'll likely need.

It's not about where the deal is now, but when. Come August all the Bass pro's and Cabella's will start their fall hunting sales. Last fall, Cabella's was selling Federal .270 ammo for 9.99 per box. (and .30-06,308,30-30,and 243.) I would call that a pretty good deal. I know, that doesn't help much now. But like I said, beginning of August, the big hunting sales should start.
