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

Re: .308 with 208g A-Max results

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!

Re: .308 with 208g A-Max results

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!
