Winchester Australia

It's a shame to see Winchester ceasing ammo production in Australia. I fully supported them if I ever bought factory 308 loads and also their Australian made 12g shotshells.

My concern is for the 'come and try' shooters. What is going to be the cost per round with limited factory round choice?

They have stopped importing powder also. I am new to reloading and busy making all the usual mistakes, but thought I'd ironed out one with powder selection. Then Winchester drops this gem news on us that it's not economical to keep importing into Australia. So I'm going around buying up my powder like a coke whore.... Once it's gone - No more.... :-(
