Is this listed in the load manual? 3.40 gr bullet weight increase and only 1 gr less powder? And good grief 300win mag velocities out of a 308 with no damage.
A 300 WM should be able to push a 208 AMAX to 2900-3000 fps with a good slow powder.

With RL17 i can push 180 E-Tips @ 3200 fps and 210 Bergers @ 2935

You wont find a lot load manuals with RL17 loads.

On the other specs, you can ask the OP of the thread.

If you are getting a reticule for measuring angles, then make sure its moa and not mrad, when your turrets are moa.

might be able to get 2500fps or so with 208s. 2700fps or so with 180s both will be really hot loads. i would also recommend a tree style reticule like a horus or vortex ebr2-b or XLR
