They have Fed Gold Medal Match 168 gr SMK BTHP for $159 a case of 200 rds. That's not a bad price.

I am not going to do the comparison shopping for you, that's your job. MidwayUSA has Black Hills factory-new, 308 caliber ammo with either the 168 gr Sierra MatchKing or the 175 gr Sierra MatchKing (your choice).

Their prices for ammo with the 168 gr bullet are - $15 for a 20 round box and $346 for a 500 round case.

Their prices for ammo with the 175 gr bullet are - $17.50 for a 20 round box and $430 for a 500 round case.

Having said all that, by the time you pay for even 500 rounds of factory match ammo you could be set up to reload you own. It's fun to do and I'll bet that by the time you reload 1,000 rounds, I bet you have broken even. Personally, I bought a Dillon progressive press which costs more on the front end, but I can realod 500 rounds of match quality 308 ammo in about 2 hours at a cost of less than $200. If you have brass left over from shooting factory ammo, 500 rounds will cost about $100.

You should look into this. Reloading can save you serious money and becomes a very enjoyable part of the shooting sports.

And if you deside not to reload, please save your brass for me

since someone else already brought it up, roll your own.


My investment into reloading has long been paid off, and I've only been doing it for about 6 months. That being said, you are not going to save any money reloading; you are going to be able to shoot much more with the same amount of money, which makes you a better shooter.


The best prices I've seen at a store for Federal GMM is $20.95 for 20 rounds. My reloads do just as well, if not better, than GMM, and only cost me $8 for 20 rounds.
