I am looking at building myself a .308 bushpig- full carbon from Hardy, just wondering what sort of factory ammo you fellas have been putting through, max shooting will be about 200-250mtrs

sub hundy  180grn winchester all the way.....AWESOME round with little recoil and big terminal preformance.
and the correct term is Bush Hobbits Short Rifle
a bush pig is one of those skanky hoes from down in waimate you see hanging around the pub.

Whatever you get make sure thereís a good supply of it.
I just bought a 308 so went shopping for ammo/projectiles/powder last weekend.
Both shops I went to had buggar all and were waiting on orders.
I ended up settling on 150gr ppu ammo, simply because most gun shops carry it, and itís not much dearer than reloading.
There is no steady flow of things like ammo since covid. Anything from the US is hard to get atm.

Norma Oryx is really reliable at all ranges, but is a bit dear - get what you pay for perhaps.  Or Hornady superformance SST for longer range or copper for closer.
