Hi guys. Grew up hunting small game. Nearly 30 now and want to get into deer hunting. Bought a rifle with a scope and have been to the range a few times.
I've got the gun sighted in fairly well I feel like. So far I've just been shooting Hornady ammo since the guy I bought it from prefers that.
I keep hearing about how all guns are different and you have to figure out what ammo your gun likes.
Stupid question - how the heck do I know what it likes? With the cost of ammo at $1/bullet - does that mean I have to spend a small fortune trying a box of each at the range each weekend to see which kind I can shoot the most accurately with? Hopefully not.
If I can group reasonably well with the Hornady factory ammo at 100 yards - can't I just stick with that? Where I plan to hunt this year, shots usually don't get much further than that anyway.
Thanks in advance.
