I live in Massachusetts, and got the BAR cheap because nobody wants one here.
If it had been in .308 or 06 it would have sold faster and for more money.
I really like the .308 and have loaded hundreds of them, I would gladly trade the rifle for a BAR in .308
As far as the hazzards of reduced loads, Hogdon specifies their H4895 for this purpose. It is the only powder I know of that can safely do this (their published "60%" rule)
I was also wondering how the autoloader would work under reduced pressures.
I have never seen any feedback on this...hence the posted question
