Need to fire form some brass and I’m looking for cheap .308 bullets (130-160 grain).

They can be blemished, pulled, etc

Any leads is greatly appreciated.

I bought 1000 of these for multiple caliber usage, same as the ones listed in post below. Mark's post below is a better deal

I think RMR recently had 147 FMJ's for like $.06 each or something crazy like that.

Edit:  I don't see them anymore but there's these:  https://www.rmrbullets.com/products/494887762911232-30-carbine-110-gr-full-metal-jacket-round-nose-2

parent brass or the actual chamber is 308 Win ?

for 308 i'd just use a bulk WC powder and a mild load, get some target time out of the effort

I have a load worked out, but holds best grouping when brass is fire formed and necked size.

I spend a lot of trigger time with a 22 LR shooting match sticks and splitting playing cards. I love my little savage BVSS

Nice - VERY NICE! [thumb] Gotta love a 1-hole shooting .22 LR.  Especially back when ammo was $9.00 a brick!

The small bore competition to me was always the most difficult of the shooting disciplines. Very limited control of the tools.
