Any American Brand Name ammo will float your boat! Winchester, Remington, Federal, Hornaday ETC. All are non corrosive and come in a broad range of projectiles, suitable from varmits to Big Bears.

Some military hard ball ammo is corrosive, the best buy for ball ammo is currently sold by the Civilian Marsmanship Program (CMP) 480 rds for $110 plus shipping. It is Greek surplus, non corrosive and accurate for hard ball.

+1 for the greek surplus.


Save your brass after your done shooting it and then pick up a reloading kit and you're in business for a good long time. :)

Greek .30-'06 ammo from the CMP: I love the stuff, too. Great deal.
