    Fifty dollars for a box of 30-06? What are you folks smoking out there? I always ran Remington core lock but this changes the game. Glad to see ya back in business but those prices are gonna hurt you.

      Yep can buy Remington 06 180grain for 32 a box all day long here in AK.. the 308 and 243 are way too light need 168 and 100.. this ammo will go the way of the dodo bird in time..

    You are pricing yourself out of business. Anyone with any common sense is NOT going to pay those kind of prices. I’ll just use my bow instead.

  3. Alex says:

  5. Al says:

    35 Remington 200 grain where are they

  6. Mel Terkla says:

    Unbelievable that they didn’t offer 30-30…so bummed!

  7. Chris B says:

    Safety issue with the lip of the hollow point going against the primer of the round in front of it. Chain detonation in the ammo feed tube wouldn’t be cool

  8. Cooter says:

    Won’t do anything my Winchester Power Max can do,and the Power Max are about half the price.

    • RED says:

      Except.that winchester power max is prohibited in lead free zones and this isn’t. Figure in the 500 to 1100 dollar fine for using lead in a lead free zone and these come out pretty cheap. Winchester equivalent is copper impact which is priced about the same as these.

    What about some 7mag
