I would not recomend it because the hot primers are not nessary and a total load change will
I would use or sell the 215s and stay with the standard Large rifle primers you are using now
for the 308.
It is not unusual for standard deviations to go up and velocities to go down with this combination
(308 and Magnum primers + faster burning powders).
Stay with what you have developed for your 308.
