Anyone know of any current deals on 06 projo’s?
Looking for cheap blaster fodder for the bar.

From time to time I find the 147 gr. FMJ's. When I do, I buy them. No they are not match quality. Sorted for weight and base closure, results on target can be very interesting. Keep an eye on the various sites as they turn up. There are bullet makers to produce 150 gr. FMJ copper clad bullets. I have used such bullets in pistol calibers. Have not yet tried them in .30-06 loads. Sincerely. bruce.

Never say never, here I thought with ammo tough to find, costly, as well as powder & primers near extinct (and black market priced), one would not be blasting . That one would be aiming and seeking accuracy from any reloads they managed to prepare for a range day.

Free country so good shooting...those 147's fly like bricks but hey...yes you can buy'em .

I've stocked up on powder and primers quite a while ago so no issues there. But I hear you. reloading components are tough to deal with these days. I work alot so the few times a year I actually get to shoot I try to bring out the bar and blast away. As long as I can hit a 16" steel plate at 300m I'm happy. So far I haven't had any projo's let me down at this distance and target size and I've gotten some real cheap projo's over the years. I remember a deal years ago on some .311 pulled soviet tracers at .04ea. Bought two 50 cal ammo cans full of em. I had to resize maybe 5000 of these to .308. Took me a while! The company said "may not ignite" so I wasn't too disappointed when no matter what I did they wouldn't ignite so I just stashed them away. Decided to use them three years ago for the browning. Boy was I surprised when I finally got to shoot them at steel. They would not light in flight but as soon as they hit a steel plate there is a huge flash and smoke cloud at/around the target. Everyone loves watching the bullets explode when they hit steel. It's a great light show. I still have 2 or 3 hundred left and save them for special occasions.

Not really, it just depends on what price you can find them for - it’s hard to beat 20 cents per bullet for H150 fmjbt’s. I have a lot of M2 and M80 pulls on hand that work good enough for practice ammo. It seems to me that the M2’s group a little better out to 200, sub-10-ring size which I guess would be 3-ish MOA.
