That's your best bet. Next would be 7.62.

Well I'm planing to get an American brand rifle, I don't think I would be able to fiend it on that caliber.

+1000000

880 rounds of 7.62x54r for around $140 shipped to your door. That price cany be beat.

Couple that with rifles that cost less than $150 and you've got a fun day at the range.

When you say an "American" rifle.no you mean one made in the USA? If so than get a all American AK-47. Great rifle,wide variety of spare parts,it's still used today by our military and others so ammo will be easy to come by,and in a SHTF situation, ammo is everywhere.

I'm agree, that's a really good deal! I'll keep this option in mind.

Sorry I meant a bolt action synthetic stock. Like a Ruger, Savage, Remington, Mossberg. Nothing against AKs or wooden stock rifles, I think they are great! like all fire arms in my opinion. But Im looking now for a synthetic bolt action...

Yeah the remmington made mosin or places like cabelas sell a sythetic stock you drop the rifle into. Scope mount etc... I love those rifles! I know its the first thing I thought of...

But other than the 7.62 if you're looking for another caliber sub 308 3006 as I saw you mentioned I do have to ask if you've looked into 243? They make for nice rifles hunting or range fun

I was looking yesterday to the Ruger American Rifle on 243... The rifle price its about 400$, and its has amazing reviews. I have never shot a 243 win, so I don't even know what's their price range on ammo. Do you think it's about the same of a 308 price or maybe a lil cheaper?

An American bolt action rifle bigger than .223, not expensive, ammo not too expensive.
I'm thinking a Savage, Ruger or Remington in .308.
Those rifles are cheap (depending on model) and you can get .308 military surplus ammo cheaper than any other large caliber plus you can find .308 at any store that carries ammo and have premium ammo for hunting or precision.

If 90% would be range practice no longer than 100 yards. 10% hunting small games. Which caliber would you choose between 308 win and 243 win?
