This isn't a LR question but i though you guys could help me out. I want to load up some cheap .308s. for culling roos/wallabies of a night and offhand practice at 200y. Could someone tell me what the lowest SAFE charge for 150's and 168's using ADI AR2206 or AR2208(Vaget)? I'm looking for a MV of ~2000fps for the 150gr.
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs & cackling "You're next". They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.
Ok ice buy some 130gr Taipan projectiles and load them with 33gr AR2207 if you have to use AR2206 use 35gr as a start. If you go lower you could get in trouble with 06. AR2207 is much better and you could drop it down below 30gr if this is to fast. For roo's you dont want a 150gr projectile as they are to hard and do not expand. get some Taipans or Speer130gr HP Speer 125gr TNT's are also awsome or you can also use any plastic tipped bullet up to 125gr.

Try using IMR 4759, it works great for reduced loads. I use for silhouette all the time.

ill second this comment!!!!
I drive 90gr hornady xtps from my 300wm over 32gr of SR4759. Great powder! From that same rifle its driven everything from that 90gr bullet to 220gr SMKs. I also load reduced loads for cartridges ranging from 220Swift to 338-300wby mag with this powder.
