While you may still be a skeptic about the .223 for deer hunting, plenty of hunters turn to it for deer, and it’s one of the standards when hog hunting. At 38%, it’s a pretty outrageous discount from one of the ammunition big names. You’re paying $25 for 20 rounds, $1.25/round.
An incredible deal? Not necessarily. But the 85-grain Copper Extreme Point bullets expand well and give you nice oversized impact diameter to put your animal down quick. $41.99 for 20 rounds, $2.10/round.
If you’re looking for a cheaper .243 Win. round, at 13% off, a box of 20 from Federal will set you back $27.49, $1.37/round. That V-Max bullet gives you good, consistent expansion to deal with whatever varmint you’re after.
Remington Core-Lokts are about as classic a cartridge as you’ll find, not the least because they’re already quite affordable. In this 7mm Rem. Mag., you’re getting the classic Core-Lokt bullets in 150-grain. At 13% off, you’re paying $50 for a box of 20, $2.50/round.
More Deer Season XP on sale, this time it’s with a 150-grain Extreme Point, polymer tipped bullet in a .300 Win. Mag. Right now it’s $52 for a box of 20, $2.60/round.
Federal’s Terminal Ascent bullets are a standout, with flat trajectories, nice long range accuracy, and a polymer tip for expansion at lower velocities. Right now, a box of 20 is on sale for $46.99, putting you at $2.35 a round, which is significantly cheaper than even buying a 200-round case.
Nothing better than when something already affordable goes on sale. At $27.99 for a 222-round box Winchester Super-X is around $0.12/round. If you’re small game hunting, that extra $10 off a box is a nice plus.
Long range, dense, and high velocity patterns, everything you want from a distance load. The extra performance comes from an aerodynamically stabilized wad. Get a box of 25 rounds for $21.99 while it’s on sale.
