.223 was considered, but the only range within an hour of me only allows hollow-point or soft tip rounds, no FMJ
Also, not really looking to use for hunting, maybe shooting birds on my family's fish farm
This is an 8 shot group I shot at 100 with my savage 110e 30-06 using 180 grain rem. Core lokt w/tasco 3x9x50...probably not that great, but great for me...
Thanks for the continued responses y'all, definitely helping me narrow my focus...any caliber less expensive than others with non-bulk ammo? (again, can't shoot fmj at the range)
