I just purchased from SG Ammo, $17.00 per box, vs. about $28.00 per box at Cabelas.
There are also lots of other choices out there, but this is a good one to start with.
flowrie,

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I doubt that I will do much, if any target-shooting (except for sighting-in). Mostly Hill Country Whitetails and maybe feral hogs.

I shoot Federal Premium Vital- Shok 165gr Vital•Shok® Sierra® GameKing® Boat-Tail SP in two different rifles; Federal P308C. A Model 88 Winchester and a Model 742 Remington. I use the same ammo in my .270 - ie 150 gr Vital•Shok® Sierra® GameKing® Boat-Tail SP. I always buy several boxes of the same lot number. I have tried several other brands of ammo for my .308's and my .270 and the most consistent I have found is the Federal Premium. I always check the zero on my rifles prior to hunting season and even if I have had to buy a new lot number they are still zeroed or extremely close, by that I mean no real adjustment necessary for hunting purposes. The Sierra Game King SP BT is a very good bullet.

puma guy,

Thanks for the recommendation--I'll give it a try.

I hope they work out in your rifle. I;ve hunted in the Hill Country for the past and used Federal ammo. Almost all my deer drop when shot, a couple have run maybe 15 yards and I had one run about 75 yard and jumped a fence. That deer left a foot wide trail of blood from where I hit him to the spot I found him. The bullet did it's job; he had no heart or lungs when I dressed him out. I was simply amazed he could go that far.
