Hi all - I'm on my way out to pick up my new to me couple of years old DPMS LR-308.  It is chambered for 7.62 with 1 : 10 barrel twist (I think).

What options do I have as far as ammo on the cheaper end of things?  I usually like to stock up on ammo when I find good deals.

I'd start with an assortment of bullet weights and brands. Even rifles with consecutive serial numbers can like different loads. No sense stocking up till you know what they like to shoot.

For cheap plinking ammo I like the ZQ stuff sold at Walmart, about as cheap as you can get a brass cased M-80 clone load.

I just did the 20 round break in on my LR-308 Oracle with Remington 150FMJ and it ran great. I also shot a few rounds of the Walmart ZQ and I was impressed for the price. Good stuff to stock up on IMHO. I'm looking for a bulk deal on it.

Here is a link to the manufacturer's site, they sometimes offer free shipping;

Seems like an odd combination selling IMI and ZQ together since mooselimbs are usually shooting at Jews?????????

A serious enabler friend! Just wish it would figure the shipping cost into the price per round ..............I could spend my money faster that way ;-)

awesome!  all good options. 

Should I stick with 7.62 or can I run commercial .308?

And I was wrong.  When I looked at it Wednesday I thought for sure it had a 16 or 18 inch barrel...Turns out it is a 20 inch...

Came with the SKB case, 2 pmags and a stock (pinned) dpms mag.  I think I did well!  Now to get it some food and hit the range.
