Default Cost of 7mm08 Ammo

What are guys paying for a box of factory ammo? Wally world only had Win. Supreme @ $40 a box my local gun shop had Rem. Cor-lok's also @ $40 a box. I'm looking to buy a new rifle in this chambering but the cost of ammo is ridicoulous!! I'm sure it's cheaper if you reload but I dont.

$24 per box at wholesale hunter.com. Under $22 per box by the case. I bought a case of the hornady sst superformance from them, that was as cheap as I could find it.

Yeah, $40 is ridiculously high. I get at Academy here in Houston for $22-24 a box, and Remington usually has some kind of a mail in rebate...

Are you sure they didn't have their 7mm-08's stacked on the shelf over a 7mm Rem Mag price tag?

Yeah that's what I thought it would be about $5-$6 more a box than 243 ammo

I'm thinking this caliber is a perfect canidate for hand loading.

I use Winchester Ballistic Silvertip ammo. It costs $33 per box. Standard ammo costs between $22.00 and $24.00 a box.

There are other premium options that cost $40 or more per box.

Jerry... I'll keep my eye peeled for reasonably priced ammo for you..Usually Remington green is the cheapest..

You are right about handloading..The 7mm08 is easy to load for..

The only factory loads that my M700 Mountain rifle has fired was a box that I bought to break in the barrel and get some brass when I first bought the rifle back in the mid 90s..

You can ship ammo to NYS, I use to do it all the time before i handloaded. there is a haz mat surcharge for ammo, powder and primers, I think its 25$ or something even if its just a few boxes so it might not be worth it, unless youre buying alot at once. Somtimes when I buy ammo and primers on gunbroker,sellers dont charge the hazmat fee because they just put it in a flatrate USPS box and dont say what it is.
