Herters
#1
So I stopped by Cabela's today, and found this Herters brand ammo for 9.99 a box (20) for .308. With a .308 bolt action being my latest acquisition, I was looking for ammo for plinking and stock piling.


Anyone have any experience with this ammo? Assuming it is going to be using in a bolt action only, do you think it would be good stock piling ammo/ You know, for SHTF? At 10 bucks a box, it is hard to beat.

I picked up a few to try at the range, just looking for experiences.

Feel free to make other recommendations for stock piling.

Thanks!

Justin

I've used Herters before but I can't remember the caliber. No problems that I can remember. For that price, you could find some brass cased stuff on the ar15 EE. Maybe some south african battlepacks.

That is probably steel case ammo, imported from Mother Russia under the old Herters name.
Probably Uly ammo due to the lacquer cases.


Honestly, I'd look at this:

Boxer primed reloadable brass case.
50rnds/ $29.95

I've never had a problem with Magtech ammo, either in .44mag or .50BMG.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
