Default wal-mart vanguard and federal pwer shok

I'm not normally a lucky person.. but I feel as if I hit the lotto after finding a 243 dlx weatherby and a 30-06 for 349 last year... I knew they would shoot well, b/c I own several weatherby v/g's and mk V's. well, i was at another walmart last yr looking for more v/g's and saw federal power shok for 11.97/box. i bought 10 boxes ...later saw a 5$/box refund...got 50$ credit card in mail yesterday! turns out, both the 30-06 and the 243 shoot the power shok sub-moa at 100 for 3 shot groups.. $7/box ammo...i won't even reload for those two! my wife will make sure deer/hogs fall to the 2 newbies this fall!!!

if i only could have found the ocean kayak deal at Academy!!!!!!

I've always had food luck with the cheap federal ammo. And I love my Vanguard S2.

Default 243/etc

I bought 30-06 150 gr, as it was all they had the power shok 243 was 100gr.... I have 2 788's that shoot 95gr factory sst's very well, and a 700 that did not like that offering.. so now, I reload 95sst's and tsx. those two 788's are the only rifles I own that like hornady sst factory ammo... my other calibers do not shoot them well... they are wonderful performers from the 243's on game..
