  • Sig 716 (.308) ammo recommendations?

    Hello, just picked up a sig sauer 716 patrol. I have some match ammo to shoot now, just wondering if anyone has a certain preference in rounds. About to buy some bulk ammo so thought I would ask first. Thanks in advance! Chris

    My DPMS LR-308 shows an affinity for 150 gr. Sierra Game-King bullets.

      Thank you, I'll see if I can track a box down. I want to try some different combos before I buy in bulk.

          Yep my reloads. Shots better than anything I can buy.

            We reload what we can, but sometimes have to brake down and buy some. Also my godfather that passed was the pro reloader. He trained me well, but i still have a thing or two to learn. I'd say I reload about 75% of the rounds I shoot. One day I maybe can stop buying factory ammo. Thanks for the sugestions

                  Yep but not as much as Kurt. I've only been reloading for 1 1/2 years. Props to everybody on this Forum that has helped me learn reloading but especially Kurt and Baldy. They've really help over the stumbling blocks that I've had along the way. I've reloaded more 5.56 and 6.8 than .308. I usually focused on 6.8, especially hunting loads. 6.8 is my favorite caliber to reload and shoot.

                    Sure is nice having a forum like this to help us along the way. Kurt I'm going load some of the 150grain Nosler I have on hand to break the new Sig in this weekend. I'll let everyone know how it goes

                      You might want to look into Sierra or Hornady bullets. Nosler puts 50 in a box, charge what the others charge for 100...

                        Thanks for the heads up, loading some of the noshers I have on hand here now. If I purchase some more bullets I'll look into those. Still stocking up on brass in that caliber right now.
