Has anyone ever used the S&B match ammo? I saw it listed in Cabela's and its a few dollars cheaper per box than Fed. GMM. I thought it might make decent practice ammo if nothing else.

Has anyone used any of their ammo at all. I keep seeing it and forget to order a box to try.
The price is right and it looks ok. Anyone have any input
Cheers,

I've used some of their other rounds, but mostly for plinking with my handguns. Come to think of it, I've used some of their shotshells years ago, and they were always good too, but that was for squirrel hunting with a .410. I've just never used any of their serious stuff for anything, but figured maybe someone else had.

I've used..hm, a couple of thousand .45s and a few .308s. The .45s do the trick. I don't think I'd use them for a competition where someone keeps score, though. Decent bang for the buck.

The .308s I've used only when breaking in the barrel. I imagined that the slow 180gr bullets would be perfect for such things - not that I would know. What I do know is that if your goal's accuracy and consistency - S&B is not your thing. At least not at longer ranges. I had a few hits I knew I did my part, and the rifle's better than me, that leaves ammo :roll:

I guess im the only one here who's heard of S&B blowing up perfectly good rifles?

Do a google search on the S&B boycott.
