hello high road, just got my new DSA stg 58 and got a decent deal on some mags for it, about 30 dollars for 7 mags, they were a little on the used side , and after cleaning and oiling them they seem to be in decent shape. Now I have to consider feeding this beast, I knew 308 was going to cost, but this much, I guess it is just the ammo prices on everything going up, I want to get enough to last me a few trips to the range and some for just in case. can some one steer me in the right direction. Ive considered reloading, but one , Ive never done it and two will I really save any money? Just need some info thats all and is there any ammo that I cannot or should not shoot through the fal?thanks::)

Current factory ammo = ~$15-20/box of 20
Current surplus ammo = ~$0.50 per round
Reloading cost = ~ $0.23-0.25 per round

Within 500 rounds you have everything paid off plus you get the ability to tailor loads to your rifle.

$97 per 200 round battle pack, plus shipping. It's fully reloadable.

Im not really into bench rest shooting with this rifle but I really like shooting and were is the best place to get ammo from for it , either in 200 rd batches or a case of 1000 to last me a little while

from what I have seen they are not picky over what they eat...mine even likes that Cavim stuff that plugs up G-3s.

The cliché says, "You don't save money by reloading. You just get to shoot more."

Most of mine is Lake City surplus. But I haven't bought any since it was .20 a round. My SAR-48 loves it.

Lake City Arsenal is known for making arguably the best military ammunition. When you see it in surplus, it is usually scarfed up in a hurry. I believe all their 7.62x51 and 5.56 ammo is now going for well over .50 a round. I don't believe that will change for the better anytime soon, if you can find it.

.308 ammo sources with current prices.

Don't forget to add in cost of shipping, unless you can find it local.
1200 rounds with 3 ammo cans is about 92 pounds.

Cheaper than Dirt has the Indian 150 grain on stripper clips in bandoleers for $19.95 per 50. I bought a few hundred rounds, its shoots decent, not gonna rave about it but it works and is about as cheap as I have seen.
