BulkAmmo.com : Sellier & Bellot 147gr .308. Pure WIN!
You know, the Lord works in mysterious ways sometimes. A few weeks back, out of the blue, I get an email from Steve at BulkAmmo.com asking me if I’d like to review some ammo from their great web-store. Now, the email might not seem so miraculous, and indeed it was not, but what was amazing was the timing. I had just come back from the range with my DPMS LR-308B (seen below relaxing on the couch) and was extremely disappointed with the performance (or acute lack thereof)
of some .308 ammo I had purchased at a local gun show a week before. I bought 5 – 20 round boxes of an unnamed .308 150 gr. ammo that did not even have enough power to cycle the bolt of my DPMS. Oh, it would fire alright, and eject the round, but it would not push the bolt back with enough force against the buffer spring to strip off a new round from the magazine. The problem is NOT my rifle. It has several hundred rounds of Remington 150 gr .308 through it with ZERO malfunctions.
So, when Steve offered to send me some .308 for evaluation purposes, my eyes lit up, a broad smile came to my face and I quickly agreed. True to his word, a few days later, a package arrived with 2 boxes of Sellier & Bellot 147 gr .308 brass-cased ammunition.
I finally was able to free up a morning to get to the range and try out the S&B, so I loaded up the DPMS and my trusty Kel-Tec SU-16 CA, just for fun, and headed to my favorite outdoor range in Sunrise, Fl last Sunday. Despite an oblique 15-20 mph wind across the range, I set up the target at 100 yds, peered into the Leupold, and fired a magazine of Remington MC 150 gr at the center of the target for a reference. I then followed that magazine with one filled with the Sellier & Bellot from BulkAmmo.com, aiming, this time, about 6-8 inches below the first cluster of 19 shots. I am pleased to say that my LR-308 loved the S & B ammo. Zero problems with the 40 rounds and, as you can see from the photo below, the grouping was equal to (or even better than) that of the Remington at 100 yards.
So Steve, thanks for running a great store over at BulkAmmo.com – one with terrific customer service and great prices on all manner of pistol and rifle ammunition. You provided great ammunition for evaluation and have made a customer out of me for sure. With all the craziness going on around the world and right here at home, it might be a good time to spring for something you can NEVER HAVE ENOUGH OF: ammunition. That’s what I’ll be doing. And I’ll be doing it at BulkAmmo.com. I hope you will too. Click below to do business with Steve:
