7mm rifle rounds in bulk?

I'm not sure if the rifle matters, but it's a Model 70 Winchester. (Looking this up for a friend, don't know any more about it)

He was told that he could find 1000 7mm rounds for $200 in bulk somewhere. Is this possible or is there something close to that?

    Even if it were chambered in 7mm Mauser the cost of this ammo is pushing 70 cents to a dollar a round.

    Check out Sportsman's Guide.

    Good Luck!

    As many have pointed out, the 7,62 is a .30 cal not a 7mm. I'll leave the rest to them :laugh: But the savage is most likely going to be a 7mm mag, 7-08 would be a close second but more mags have been made so the odds are better. The tasco scope adds 0 to the value, if it's my gun it's a negative number since I have to pull it and take up space in my garbage can with it. A basic black 110 is going to go in the $300-$500 range locally. Value will vary quite a bit depending on where you are. Assuming it's a 7mm mag, it's a large round, burns lots of powder and generally thumps pretty well on either side of the trigger. Good up through elk sized game with the right bullet, *maybe* moose size. I'm not a moose hunter so I'll leave that as a maybe. No issues dropping a deer with it. Bigger issue is finding a deer large enough to slow down a good 7mm mag bullet. Effective range is likely to be as far as you can accurately shoot +100 yards. Most shooters are fine to about 200-300 yards, the round should carry more than enough energy out to 500 or so.

    You can't even get 320 rounds for less that 200 let alone 1000. That sounds fishy. This is highly un-likely.

    Highly unlikely.

    If he does, they'll be very old, corrosive, berdan primed military rounds.

    You wouldn't want to feed that to a Model 70.
