I have recently received my FAC for .308 / Mod - very happy about that. One of the members here is helping me get set up for reloading, but that's obviously going to take some time to achieve and time to learn the proper procedures (I'm working through the books).
In the meantime I need some reasonably cheap factory rounds. My local shop stocks the following brands (though not necessarily all in .308):
•Sellier & Bellot
Assuming I can get .308 ammunition in any of the above makes, can someone point me toward the "budget" ammunition in that list - I need something cheap and cheerful. I've seen the Gecos advertised at my local shop for about £21 per box, but otherwise the price list for ammunition seems to be "secret" there. If any of the above were likely to be a similar price or not much more expensive, that would be good to know - I'd rather not have to go through every brand asking what and how much - it'll piss them off...
I've thought about using the Geco 170gr SPs but a 150gr SP of some kind would be preferable. If the fired brass has a reputation for being good for reloading, that would also help - I know some makes are better than others, just not which ones.
Any pointers you can give would be appreciated.
