SKS and Mosin Nagant when shooting surplus.
Maybe some cheap .223. Thats probably about it, Not to sure On current prices though, started to reload just so I would be able to afford to shoot high powered rifles.
Handloading opens a lot of doors or you could stick with the mosin nagant...
Nothing is under 50 cents off the shelf.

My 30-06 handloads. My uncle gave me about 300 pieces of 30-06 brass when he cleaned out his reloading room. That has cut my cost of reloading 30-06 waaaaay down and I should have enough brass to reload my 06 for the rest of my life. I highly recommend reloading. Plenty of benefits other than cheaper than factory ammo.
