What gun are you shooting?

The two main calibers recommended for EOTW (5.56 Nato and 7.62x39) are both easily obtainable for far less. Especially if you're good with steel cases. Even brass case 5.56 cartridges aren't that bad.

Agreed, even most match grade .308 shouldn't be that high. You can even get .50 BMG surplus for right at $3 a squeeze. $2 a pop is a bit much.

An the subject of ammo, AbleAmmo has RUAG Ammotec 7.62x39 FMJ for about $5/20.

Good deal. :D

As compared with Norma 7.62x54R loads, which run almost $50/20, half as much as the rifle that most often shoots them.

only a fool posts his zombie plan. Only those involved in the plan should know of its existence. How am I to know if you all get zombified? Or else running around like a chicken with its head cut off and then trying to steal my plans because its so much more epic? lol just sayin.

Zombies don't have their past lives memory. They won't recall any discussed plans.

As far as stealing ideas, go for it. I just won't post out specific locations to reduce would be looters and freeloaders seeking my supplies or protection.

I could go on and on about ammo types and how they suck or how they dont, but in my own words" 5.56 crap, 7.62x39 OK, NEVER would go NATO rounds if necessary"

I shoot only a .270 Winchester break barrel Handi rifle( hard o hind that gun on the net) right now. I have my eye on a .45 revolver and a lever action 306. Still working on a chotgun though.

Basically, I am NOT ready for the attack yet. But I have brothers who can cover for me until I get my own :)

Not even 7.62 NATO?

What are you trying to kill?

For urban combat distances (0-200 yards), 7.62x39 is great at what it does. A head shot isn't terribly hard for the zombies either.

I'll take the faster follow up shot and greater magazine capacity thanks. Don't need full rifle cartridges when the intermediates are plenty fine.

No bolt love?

If you're going .270 Winchester, it's hard to beat something like a Model 70.

Got the .270 for b-day when I turned 18. It was a toss up between that and the lever action( I had no vote, it was a surprise)

The 7.62 is a good round, but I wouldnt get it in 39. It comes in a bigger grain( likea 51 or something). Trying to say away from NATO at all cost. Besides, the 7.62 is a .30 cal something, its around the 306 range I think. I would go the 300 rought cause I have more variety n rounds and in guns. And the 300's are good sniping rounds. Now dont get me wrong, I would LOVE to get a dragnov, but lets be real, I'm not that rich :(

Dude, Romak-3/PSLs are Dragunov look-alikes built on FPK receivers that run about 7 bones with 4x PSO optic.

Example:

It runs 7.62x54R, same as the old Mosin Nagant rifles (of which I shoot), and current PKM machine guns. It's about the Russian equivalent to the .308.

Also, there is a reason the .308 is the preferred "sniper" round in NATO countries. It is highly consistent (and consistency = accuracy potential), it has a long barrel life (some 8k-10k rounds, which would be very important in a long term scenario), moderate recoil (so it is easier to shoot well), and it does not produce the same massive concussive blast as the belted magnums. I guarantee that a .300 Mag would be heard MUCH further away than a .308 (which would draw more zombies), burn out the barrel, beat up you, beat up you optics (a rare comodity post SHTF) and burn out your rifle faster.

.300 Win Mag is a great hunting round. It is an absolutely AWESOME precision round for the 800-1400 yard envelope in the right rifle. But for the headshots a zombie would require, most shooters will never be able to hit those over 200-300 yards in field conditions. Ammo weight, accuracy, and repeat fire capability are more important that the rounds sheer power.

In short, buy a 10/22 and a bunch 25 rounders for the zed. Buy something else for the survivors.

Where I live, I cant be getting assault rifles, of guns such as the dragnov( f-ing neighbors). So I'm basically limited to "hunting" rifles for the time being( gota keep a low profile). I would love to get an AK( for more than teh reason it looks cool), but its not practical.

Have you ever shot the dragnov? and used the scope? I never did like the scope, how dose it fit?

The scope tends to fit comfortably against my glasses. I've never been bothered by it. And once I got used to the reticle, I liked it quite a bit. Once I get 2 other firearms bought, then it's gonna be a tossup between a PSL and a Savage bolt rifle.

Also, where the hell are you in Georgia with an AWB?

You realize x39 and x51 have nothing to do with grain, right? It's the case length.

Why are you avoiding NATO "at all costs"? If anything, NATO rounds are an advantage because they can be found surplus for cheaper than factory ammunitions of other varieties. This in turn makes it easier to stockpile up front pre-apocalyptic event.

Now i'm confused with what you're trying to get at..

7.62 NATO / .308 / .30-06 / .300 Win Mag / .300 weatherby mag / .30-378 weatherby mag / etc. = .30 bullet. They're all a .30 bullet mated with different cases (granted, bullet weight can vary too, but they are basically the same projectile with different cartridges)

7.62x39 / 7.62x54R = .311 bullet.

All of the above, with the exception of the 7.62x39, would do well in long range shooting.

One word: PSL. I've got a friend with one, and he can make "accurate enough" shots out to 600 yards with his.

But PW already mentioned the usefulness of the PSL...

Yah sorry, term mix up. The 39 is OK, but I prefer the 51, better for range.

And I sty and stay away from NATO for a few reasons, but the maim one is that its "government ammo". No I'm not a government nut case, but "hunting guns and ammo" draws less attention. Yes I know woy can get NATO rounds in "hunting guns", but not the guns we like. Which brings me to my next point. I live in south east GA, city limits. So yes, I can shoot anything I want, however my neighbor/s( all 2 of them) have called the cops on us many times on different issues and we're not pushing for gun calls. We have enough strikes against us, so keeping a low profile till we move is priority #1.

Yah I know there the all in the same family, but some ammo dosent like to gun swap. I cant take a .308 gun and cram a 7.62 i its place, that is basically my point. Basically, to each gun its own round. And the guns I like are not in NATO( except the dragnov)

600 aint bad for a sniper round, but kinda expected a bit more out of the dragnov. My with my .270( gota get some pics of her up here soon), I can get the bullet out to 600 yards, and thats with a 22" barrel( its meant as a saddle gun), but thats with a 33" bullet drop, its like st the bottom of my scope( havent shot that far yet)
