Ok, not quite plinking. A buddy and I are going to work through a couple of the NRA Marksmanship Qualification programs together as a way to make practice fun and to get well-rounded practice as well. We just need rounds that shoot consistently ...power is unimportant.
I'd like to save money on ammo, somewhat obviously. The boxes at SW for $13.99 are very tough to beat price-wise but they are not always available. So, for reloading my own ...what would you guys recommend for a low-cost accurate load for a .30-06? I know that it'll need tuning to my gun, so I'm not asking for that. I'm looking for low-cost bullets that shoot accurately, including a source to buy them from. I'm looking for loads that use reasonably priced powder and lower but consistent loads so each bottle of powder goes a little further. I already have plenty of brass since I've saved all my .30-06 rounds for the last 20+ years of shooting, and I have 99% of the reloading stuff that I need but haven't tried using it yet (!).
Looking forward to your hints and opinions ...and favorite sources for the materials. (I'm in the Fairbanks area)
