    X bolt 308 ammunition

    Hi all I was wondering what other x bolt 308 owners are finding the most accurate in factory loads. I'm currently using RWS target elite 154 grain and not really getting on with them unless it's me!. I was just wondering what other people are using and how they rate them. Sidney

    If it is just for target work maybe try some Radway Green Black Spot ammunition or MEN target amunition both would be marked as 7.62x51 Nato.

    Try some ppu. Cheap as chips but work very well in some rifles. Brass is also good for reloading if (when lol) you get into that too. Don't be put off by ammo snobs. Give it a go.

    Thanks for comments I'm stalking not target shooting. I have been looking around at ammo choice and finding it a minefield. The only reason I'm using the target elite as someone I know recommend them but I'm having my doubts. RWS Geco have been mentioned by a couple of friends but I'm open to comments,thoughts and suggestions of other manufactures. Thanks for your input Sidney

    Sorry but when you mentioned Target Elite well I naturally assumed that it was for target shooting ...................................... Silly me!
