Well after reading nothing but bad things about the Remington 710 30-06. I decided to go with the Savage 111FCXP3 30-06 part of the Savage Package series. I think that this rifle will do a great job and I got it cheaper than the 710. I do how ever have a question, as far as just shooting targets and sighting the gun in, is there anything wrong with shooting Silver Bear or metal cased ammo?

Maybe ok to use cheap stuff to get it on the paper. Then sight in with what you plan to hunt with. Ammo varies too much I think.

Hmm, I thought I responded but I guess the computer ate it.

Start out with US commercial ammo to break it in and get used to the feel of its action. Then try steel cased ammo. If it chambers and extracts as easily as the brass cased stuff, you should be fine. If not, it will probably wear the rifle in ways you don't want.
