    My 308AR likes the IMI 168gr Razor Core. Price right now is around $.79 a round.

    I'll have to give the Magtech 168 a try.

    Ive never bought S&B in 308 but tons in 6.5CM

    Try to find cheap ammo loaded with a BTHP bullets and they will fly a bit better than flat based. Once you find a cheap load that your gun shoots 1.5 moa or better and its cheap STOCK UP.

    Look on SG Ammo or Target Sports for good pricing

    Magtech CBC Sniper 168 gr. with SMKs aren't in stock anywhere that I'm aware of. According to TargetSports-USA:

    I'm guessing that they mean "discontinued" rather than "discounted", but either way, TS-USA is no longer a viable source for that round, which is a shame, since I also really like the round, as I could reliably get 1.5 MOA or less at 100 yards in my SR-25 with it, and it was only a few cents more per round than the M80 clones that I was getting 6 to 8 MOA out of. I'm switching to Prvi Partizan Match 155 gr. now, which I can get for the same price as Magtech at TS-USA, and it seems to hold around the same accuracy for my SR-25.

    I never have but its FGMM prices. Must be decent though. Its pretty hard to fk up 168 or 175 SMK bullets.
