    Anybody know where to get Inexpensive Ammo? Currently paying about $20.00 for a box of 20 cartridges. Thanks for any info.

    That appears to be about the going rate for it.

    You can check out, Graf & Sons - 243 Winchester The PRVI ammo is listed at $15/box. I have shot a bit of this in a few different calibers. Great brass if you reload. As far as accuracy you are looking at a product similar to Winchester white box or Remington yellow/green box.

    .243 : Ammunition To Go

    Still about $1 per bullet...


    You've got 90gr Prvi Partisan at $0.59 per bullet HERE or 100gr Prvi Partisan at $0.80 per bullet HERE


    That's the cheapest I could find...

    FYI most online ammo deals can be found at gun-deals.com.

    Find a buddy who handloads, buy a set of dies (unless he has them already). Keep him happy with a box of his favorite bullets every now and then (and well-supplied with your powder, primers, and brass) and most would be more than willing to crank you out a few boxes on occasions throughout the year.

    I am content with the expensive stuff for my .243. This keeps me from burning up my barrel. I learned that lesson once already.

    Of all the causes for increased barrel wear that have been presented over the years, this is the first time I have seen monetary outlay for ammunition cited as a direct factor.

    .243's high velocity is hard on barrels. When I only buy expensive ammo for it, I shoot it less, thus stretching the time until I have to rebarrel it.

    Although I would have never made this connection on my own, I cannot argue with flawless logic!
