I just bought a Remington 700 SS 5R in 308 and it has a 1/11.25 twist. I've read that the sierra match king 175 is very popular in this gun but wanted to ask around before I bought 200 rounds of it. I know I need to buy a few different brands and different grains but with this newborn baby my range time is going to be limited. Looking to shoot under 500 yards, mainly coyotes,deer, hogs and target shooting
Chad is one source. Federal GMM is a standard that shoots well for factory ammo in most 308s. Australian Outback ammunition is one I have been hearing good things about and is loaded with Sierra 168gr match bullets and another loading in 165gr Sierra Gamekings
I'll give another recommendation for that. I shot a few hundred of the 168gr Amax bulk when i first got my 308 barrel. It was consistent and very affordable. Wasn't the most accurate off the shelf ammo for me, but it was by far the cheapest and what i deemed to be the best value. Did better in my particular rifle than the most affordable "good factory ammo," the Federal gold match and hornady match series.
