:shock:

Sounds like reloading would pay for itself, if you shot a lot !

Speaking of Dicks Sporting Goods... I've never been in one.. Is it like a Sportsman Warehouse, or Sports Authority? They just opened one up fairly close to work..

Probably more like Sports Authority... I think. It's been so long since I was in a Sport's Authority that I can't remember the setup. They have tons of exercise equipment and stuff for school sports. They have a decent hunting section, in my opinion it could be bigger. :W:

The prices are decent... they don't beat WalMart's but really, who does? I acknowledge that even though I hate shopping for hunting stuff at WalMart.

Yall rekon that it is so expensive cause it is "mag" ammo? I have never bought for a magnum. I shoot a remington 30-06 and shoot remington 180gr. core-lokt and my daughter shoots a rem. 7mm-08 w/winchester ballistic silvertips. My ammo is $25 and hers is $27 per box. I was just wonderin cause I was thinkin about getting a mag. caliber, but if my ammo is gonna double, I will just stick with what I have.

I'm glad I reload

Bigern the 30 06 will do all that's needed
Just my opinion

The 06 has plenty of recoil, and can't carry the range that the 7mm Magnum can carry. I'll take the magnum even though the guns with less recoil can kill just as many deer.JMO

I have no problems with the recoil and yeah, magnum ammo is more expensive but wow... I never thought it'd be that much more.

I'm about ready to move this thing, I burned up a box of ammo trying to set the dang thing before I gave up and changed scopes. Three shots later and it was close enough for me to call it quits until next weekend. I'll fine tune it then. Word of warning... apparently Weaver scopes can't handle the recoil of a Remington 700 Limited Edition 7 mm Magnum. :evil:
