    I figures I would just purchase online but the shipping price is killing me. I am just putting this out to see if anyone has had any success finding hunting ammo in the Portland area?

    Thank you! I stopped by today and once I found someone to help me with ammunition walked out with a box. I am doubly happy to find Winchester 180gr as that is what i will be sighting in my rifle with.

    Well it shot really well.....until my scope base moved!! I got home and fixed it, and I don't think I tightened down enough. When installing my scope setup, I was rushing and kept forgetting steps, so I had to tear it down 3-4 times. I think the last time I was working on it I didn't put the final tighten on the screws. I am headed out for some fun shooting tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. I got it dialed into about 3" high at 50 yards before the base moved. That puts me on center at 200 yards, which I am happy with.

    Anyone know if there are Dies, Brass, Bullets here in the PDX area for the 7.62X54r I want to do locally on that as well for reloading. Sportsman doesn't have a thing and Big 5 is the only place I have seen the Ammo as well besides Gun Show.

    I haven't seen the dies,brass or bullets for sale locally. However I have seen the ammunition at Gun Broker in Clackamas, Keith's in Gresham ( they had Winchester in 180gr FMJ) and Wild Bills in Molalla (S&B in 180 gr FMJ). Both have reloadable brass. I am going to have to order the reloading dies and .311 caliber bullets from an online source. I will be getting RCBS as they are set up to use. 311.caliber not .308

    I bought my dies at Fishermans Marine in Delta Park but that was some time ago. Give 'em a call 1st.

    Sorry missed this. It shot pretty well off the hood of my buddy's trick and we were able to get a 3 inch pattern out of it which i was very happy with. My shooting wasn't the best, so I think it could do better.

    Thanks for letting me know. I head down there periodically. They have pretty good prices for on sale ammo.
