Hey guys, I have a friend who uses a sweet enfield rifle for hunting and target shooting, but the only problem is getting the ammo for it. Apparently it is fairly rare and therefore expensive (around $15/20 rounds). Another problem is that many stores online try to sell .308 as 7.62x51, which is like telling people to use 5.56 in their .223s. Overpressure is not a good thing.

So then, anybody know where a good place for cheapish ammo is? Thanks for any help!

I buy milsurp from here http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/browse/ammo-rifle-308.aspx?c=96&s=919
just search through 308, they have 7.62x51 listed with the 308. you'll find it from several different countries.


I shoot either in my winchester sxar heavy barrel with never a problem from either round.
