i need some more 6.8 and my usual source is out. i got used to paying $480 per k and cant stomach buying ssa stuff for what it goes for. wheres the spot for the best price? the hogs are in need of their lead injections.

I bought a couple hundred rounds and now I reload. Check out 6.8 forums, if you haven't already that is.

Try Palmetto State Armory. Sometimes they have good deals. Or Gunny at GTGammo. I'm not sure if he is still loading 6.8 though.

Checked Natchez Ammo and SG Ammo. Both websites don't have it in the quantity you want, or nowhere near the deal you got. SG Ammo has a 200 rd case - 6.8 SPC Hornady V-Max Varmint for $187

I just roll my own. I am too cheap to buy store-bought ammo if I don't have to.

I think you are going to have one hell of a time finding factory 6.8 ammo at .48 cents a round! Hell new SSA brass costs more than that. I'd love to know who your source was for 6.8 at $480 for a thousand rounds.

as of now the source is dried up. my reloader will reload me the brass at around $150 per k but i need the brass. ive got a wanted to buy thread up for the brass but not getting much action on that.

Please don't tell us that you threw your 6.8 brass away.

If you didn't throw it away, then you should have around 1K in 6.8 brass. That's not enough for you to start reloading?

I have to start reloading because my new Mini 6.8 is chambered in the original SPC so any "Tactical", and "Military " loads generate too much pressure. So in Short i reload or get Factory loads which go for $12-$22 on ammotogo.

diddnt throw it away. just never bothered saving any. most was shot out in fields or at night and wouldnt have been picked up anyway regardless.
