FWIW, I've loaded the Hornady 225gr BTHP in my 308. Here are the particulars,
moly'd Hdy 225gr BTHP
RL17 - 48.0gr
OAL 3.08" (.008" off lands)
Rem 700 Varmint barrel, 1/12 twist, 20.5"
MV - 2500 fps
Elevation 4500', sub-moa at 100 and 1200 yards.
Tried going to a mile, caught a few splashes but overall inconclusive results at that distance. Not sure if it was still stable or not.
The advertised BC is .67-ish. My shooting results were more like .71.
The 215 Berger does look like a winner, great balance of weight, BC, velocity potential.
