    I just got a Socom and need to build up a pile of ammo.... What is the most affordable/reliable place to shop? I'm hoping to spend around .45-.50 per round. Buying 500 at a time. CTD is out of all their surplus rounds.
    There are a lot of Internet sites, but can they be trusted?

    Thanks for any help.

    Well, I don't know about .308, but for 7.62 x 39, if you're hoping to pay that much per round then you're hoping to pay about twice the current going rate.

    Classic Arms sells .308 for $0.37 per round, and their 7.62 x 39 about $0.21 per round. This is before shipping of course.

    I've dealt with these guys and always been happy. They have Wolf, Brown Bear, Privi Partisan at the price your looking for.

    The best bet for ammo these days is the local gun show. IMO. Entrance is not cheap, but less than shipping if you buy in bulk. My shooting partner and I go and buy quite a bit. Unfortunately, as of late, no more surplus .308 -- pretty much, that stuff is just about gone as nations dump the last of their old surplus. We have had good luck with BVAC once fired brass: I shoot from an HK91, my buddy a Socom 16.

    Cheers,
    DJM

    It's time to reload, even buying brass. Brass @ $60/1000 = 6 cents divide by 6 reloads = 1 cent per shot. Bullets 19 cents. Wolf primers (work great, non corrosive) 2 cents or CCI 3 cents. Powder 10 cents. Total = 32 cents per round.

    I haven't shopped hard for bullets lately so there may be better deals out there. I paid 14 cents last time but I don't remember where.
