    This ammo comes from South Africa. I've used their 100 grain soft tip .243 ammo with fine results. Very good accurasy and predictable lethal performance on mule deer.

    Natchez Shooters Supplies (800) 251-7839 has this ammo on sale right now:

    $8.57 .243 100 grain
    $8.78 .270 130 grain
    $8.78 .270 150 grain
    $9.25 30-06 150 grain
    $9.25 30-06 180 grain

    $11.89 300 Win MAG 220 grain
    $10.24 303 Brit 174 grain
    $10.24 303 Brit 174 full metal jacket

    These prices are like going back in time 15 years.

    PMP (Pretoria Metal Pressings) is part of Denel, the SA arms company. It's good stuff - apart from my handloads and carry ammo, I used to use the stuff all the time when living in South Africa - usually shot the ammo in order to scavenge the brass for reloading.

    I've shot a bunch of their 180gr SP 303 British fodder. It was reasonably accurate but SLOW - chrono'ed out of two different No4Mk1's @ 2200fps at seven yards.... That's a full 200fps below MkVII spec (174gr @ 2440).

    On the good side, their brass is top-notch stuff - well worth keeping and reloading.
