Jeesh. You must reload or your rich. That will suck the wallet dry with factory ammo prices.
I started by biting the bullet (no pun intended) and bought a lot of Lapua factory ammo to get the cases. Now we reload only and we get a tad better accuracy with the reloads. Berger VLD bullets seemed to have made a big difference in the consistency of the accuracy. Here is the load we use:
VIT 170 Powder, 79.4 gr, Berger 300 gr Hybrid bullets with Federal 215 primers. My cost per completed round is now down to $1.93 per round.
My favorite shooter is my Bulgarian AK74 it is one of my kit build guns.
The reason I like it is the recoil is almost nonexistent, the ammo was dirt cheap when I stocked up about a year ago, & it is also accurate a lot more accurate than the AK47. That is why this gun goes with me every time I go to the range.
I can shoot all day for way less than any other gun in my gun vault.

Mine is a Marlin 336 30-30. I live the smooth lever action the knock down power and accuracy of it. What makes it even better is that it was handed down to me from my grandmother. She shot it for years until she passed.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be wear; and they shall walk and not faint.
