Is this ammo any good? is this a good price. I am new to the .308 game and looking for a reference point.

Thanks,
Daniel

In the precision rifle world reloading is a must my friend you can get a good set up and load up a couple hundred match rounds for that price... I suspect this will be comming out of that remington 700 you obtained correct??? FGMM or SMK or black hills are a few ways to go for factory match ammo if you go with anything else besides handloads you are not juicing every bit of accuracy you can get out of these rifles... My remington 700 SPS-V now traded to a fellow calgunner Pinto Held under .5 MOA with handloads and good technique...

Then again my rifle was far from stock but the point is you're remington 700 police can achieve great accuracy for a cheaper price than factory ammo and if you're getting into long range unless you're rich it saves money and is fun...

I think I would enjoy hand loading, how would I get started on that?

what equipment do I need? how much do I need to spend to get started?

150FMJ sounds like plinking ammo, although you should get close to MOA or maybe even sub-MOA in a precision rifle with that, you just won't be hitting the full potential.

Depends on how accurate you want to be, and how accurate you really are.

Well you got a nice rifle to start with you should really squeeze all the accuracy you can out of it... All together when I first got started I spent around 400 bucks for a RCBS rockchucker and all the bells and whistles with it to get started you can even buy a kit I would reccomend a single stage press like a RCBS kit for around 300-400 bucks comes with everything you need besides the dies and shell holder "a extra 50 bucks if even" and you need to read and be careful with it... But like I said if you want to get the full potential out of that rifle I would reload or else you could have just got any regular rifle instead of a precision set up... Im off to sleep but ill be on tomorrow if you have any questions I can help you out just send me a message I would love to help!!!

Magtec is made by CBC of Brazil. There was a recall on their 1970's/80's military stuff due to failures.

You CAN have a good basic reloading setup with that money and have some cash left over for supplies; primers, bullets, powder, etc.

interesting idea. I think I may do this. As for breaking in my new 700p what advice do you guys have?

Clean the barrel as it came from the factory.
Shoot 1 round and clean again, being sure that ALL copper comes out.
Repeat 4 more times.
Then go shoot the gun a bunch and quit worrying about it.
