This is an odd one...I just sold my long range .308 and .300 win mag rifles on a whim, and now I have the custom ammo sitting on my bench not doing anything. Rather than taking it all apart and selling the components, I thought I'd see if anyone on here might want it first.

.308 Winchester Ammo - I have 279 loaded rounds with the following specs: Hornady Amax 178 grain bullets, New never fired Lapua brass, Federal Large Rifle primers, IMR 4895 powder. These pushed 2560fps out of my 26" barrel. I also have 221 pieces of once fired Lapua .308 brass. I'd like to sell all of the .308 ammo and brass in one package if possible...$400 FTF in DFW area. I paid about that for the Lapua brass alone...my loss is your gain!

Is that 279 loaded rounds of .308 a hunting round? I am having trouble putting the game on the ground. The bullet is exiting with the same size hole as it went into the deer. Then I am tracking for a 1/2 mile trying to find it.

Sorry I don't reload so if they don't sell as a package let me know. I need a great reloaded hunting round.

Donald- the 178gr Amax bullet is a great hunting round. I chose it for its versatility as a hunting round and its great ballistic coefficient. Relatively low drag, great weight retention and ability to fight through the wind...great overall bullet for the range or for game.

What's the COAL on the loaded rounds? How much 4895 they got in them? I've shot a boatload of 178 amax's but never used 4895 under them. Thanks
