    Well, I've got a .30-06 coming, so I might as well start thinking about feeding it :).

    Which ammo websites do you guys recommend? All I know of currently is

    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com

    I'm planning to get at least 100 rounds of 150 gr. (or lighter) .30-06...should I just buy from Wally World? Or would an internet store be cheaper? I'm not really interested in milsurp ammo if it's corrosive (i.e., Korean .30-06).

    Reload!!!!

    A box of Winchester Super-X costs $10.96 at Wal-Mart. I can make the exact same thing for about $6.00. For $8.00 per 20, I can use Sierra's 165gr Gameking.

    Brass is pretty much free for me because most people at the range don't reload and have no problem giving me their empties when I ask for them.

    Read your other post concerning the Remington you just bought and your misgivings about recoil.

    Another great thing about rolling your own is that you can choose the power levels you want. If a 180gr bullet at 2700fps is too much for you, you can reduce the amount of powder to give you a power level perfect for you.

    How much space does reloading take? I'm living in an apartment right now and I don't have a garage to store all the dies/tools/etc.

    To load .30-06, you can get yourself a Lee hand press, set of dies, trim gauge & cutter, powder measure, hand primer, etc. With the hand press you don't need a dedicated bench and you could easily store all your stuff in something the size of a milk crate.

    Like Cortland said, a Lee Hand Press is perfect if space is at a premium. I'd like to get one simply because I want to be able to watch "American Idol":D

    http://www.midwayusa.com sells a Lee Hand Press kit for under $50. Can't remember all that is included with the kit.

    Starting out, you only need this much space:
