What other and presumably better .30-06 rounds travel at >3,500? I use Liberty Civil Defense handgun rounds in all our carry firearms. Light to carry, lots of smack and uniform expansion. Liberty’s proprietary alloy presumably costs a lot to produce and their volume presumably is very modest compared to the mass producers. For a Southeastern deer, I think this is an excellent proposition. Sure, $3.00 a round is significant, but after 3-5 rounds sighting in, how many do you need to shoot? My only caution is to wear good ear protection because at that speed I’d expect it to be… Read more »

It’s a decent round for varmint hunting, but not for anything larger than antelope. I’ve been hand-loading similar rounds for decades. Also, the earlier posts concerning overpricing are, in my opinion, valid statements.

I posted, it never showed up…so I will shorten it. There are less than $1.50 in ULTRA PREMIUM components (bulk purchase) in each round. So you have a $30.00 box of “lightweight” ammo that should be in the $32.00 range MAX ! And that IS including manufacturing, packaging and shipping ! With that being said, the greedy manufacturer is making about $27.49 per box profit.
I will roll my own and at 1/4 the price with the same components… So much for mass production.

The pricing of most ammunition is nothing but pure price gouging… This 30-06 ammo cost little if ANY more to produce than a 150 gr .308 being sold for $17.00. Look across the board, the manufacturers prices are ridiculous… It’s as if some sales moron throws a dart at a price board. Stuff that has been $15 00 to $20.00 gets a “NEW” name or whatever (does the same thing as all the others on the market) and the price goes up 300%, yet production cost has risen possibly 5 to 10%… Going with the absolute TOP OF THE LINE… Read more »

I agree with Warrior, way too pricey! I don’t care if it’s solid copper, other Manufactures sell copper rounds at a slight price increase over common bullets.

100 grain bullet huh? Look out Bambi. Ain’t coming for your mom with this bullet. They must be coming for your scrawny little spotted fawn hide.

And to top it off… $3.00 per round? Good grief. Remi Corelok is less than 1/3 that price retail and kills whitetail critters just as dead.
