Hi all, as stated, I'm looking for a load for my Win model 88 lever action .308. I am sold on the 208 AMAX and r17 for the 308, but will it work for only having 2.82" to work with due to the detachable magazine? What kind of powder charge would I have with the bullet seated so deep?
Here are a couple pictures with the 208 on one side and a 175g SMK on the other, both at 2.82.
To achieve a decent velocity, there must be a balance in bullet weight and charge weight if the COAL is constant. What is that bullet/powder combo? Anyone go through this?
