Re: Reduced loads in 308 for youth

Yes i see your points. I do know i have ran retumbo in a 308 before with heavy bullets but never thought about the light bullet. I understand how that can happen just didnt occur to me. My apologies....

So i guess i would now suggest trail boss. I know it works great doing subs pushing 160-180 grain bullets. Would it work in this case using the 125's? maybe a load of around 14 to 16 grains?

That Link has info on working up reduced loads with Trail Boss and some data for 22-250 on up.

I have used it with 150,168,175 bullets in .308, with 10grains and a 175 it was chrono'd at an average of 1050 out of a 26" barrel,still had room to add more if you want to go above subsonic.

The 175's had very little recoil at all.
