Since I'm fairly new to such things, I thought I would ask you all for your advice and expertise. My dad bought a rifle for me, and I purchased some ammo to put through it, when it eventually gets to me. The rifle is a Browning X-Bolt, it has a composite stock, blued barrel, in .308 Win. Leupold scope. My dad liked the set-up as well as the feel of it, a LOT, but I haven't laid hands on it yet. As you can guess from the title of the thread, I purchased 1000 rounds (with two dry storage boxes) of Herters .308 from Cabela's. I plan on using the herters at the range, and something of a higher quality for hunting. What can I expect from this combination? Cleaning recommendations? Thoughts? I could live without the snide remarks, unless they're unusually clever. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
