    Using Hornady V max 55gr on fox.
    Any suggestions for cheap ammo for general target/gong work? Occasional crow etc?

    Check if ppu chambers ok in your rifle before you buy a lot.
    It's hard to close the bolt on ppu in my Tikka t3 one-in-twelve so I gave up on it.
    Hornady v-max 40 grain is a little bit tight to close the bolt on too but it cloverleafs in the rifle so I bear with it.
    Federal 55g is no bother and groups about 1" at 100.

    A mate of mine bought some "practice ammo" labeled as Hornady 55gr in a steel case, think he payed 15 for 50 or there abouts. Shoots fine in my 1 in 12 Howa but he's struggling to get good groups in his 1 in 9 Howa. Might be worth seeking some out.

    I got some cheap Barnaul 6.50 for 20 Russian steel cased 55gr sp to bed in my new .223 they even grouped under moa. Ppu work great good to practice with at the price

    Pheasant feeder........ I have the Hornady training ammo. 17.50 per 50. I sighted in using them (and will zero again this weekend as I've adjusted the action in the stock).
    I managed sub moa (0.8 inch) @ 100 yds so pleased with that. Will seek out some PPU local to me......
