Re: .308 with 208g A-Max results

    I am positive of it. This is the right numbers. This is right on the verge of showing pressure signs. This is good in MY gun

    What is your exact velocity. You say 2600, but what is ES, SD and Avg.? What is your barrel length? I believe you, and think it to be a cool idea. Just want some numbers to muddle up my head some more!

    That load looks more in line with a 30-06 than a .308.

    I dont remember, and I am at work, but I think that is one of my loads for 150 gr in .308.

    Dang! And I was getting excited when I saw RL-15, I have tons(pound) of that powder for my .223.

    Thanks!
