Does anybody know of a gunshop in the Bay Area that stocks BlackHills ammo? Specifically the .308 match vairieties. Just need a couple of boxes to sample through my PSS.

H & T...

Could ya lemme know how the Black Hills 168gr does against the Fed GMM 168gr? Interested to know how far the zero varies btwn the two...

BTW: about a yr ago I shot some 5yr old Fed GMM 168gr and some fresh stuff and I couldn't tell the difference - apparently no age-related dispersion. (Gun: 700LTR).

Sure will Bill, in fact it is the primary reason I want to try the BHs to compare to FGMM - before I plunk down some $$$ for a case of the FGMM.

Do note there also is a Winchester 168gr SMK match load too -- but I've never seen it at stores or in SGN ammo ads. NRA uses this Winch ammo for testing 308 rifle accuracy...

Yup - trying to see if I can talk Edbon out of a box of Winchester to try it out also http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Some time ago I had bought a case of Remington Match ammo - my PSS was getting as good or better groups with surplus Santa Barbara and Port .308 http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
