    Tried these in my LR308. It doesn't like them.

    80 left in the box. Sierra part number 2145

    How about $35

    How about full boxes (100) everyday for 28 bucks retail. I have a full box sitting above my computer as I input this post. Even rip off Cabelas is only 30 bucks for 100.

    The 2145's don't like a hot charge. They shoot crappy groups in my 308's anywhere near 40 grains of 335. If I drop to about 35+, things tighten right up. Watch your neck tension as well. At 35 1/2, I can shoot ragged one hole groups (3) at 100 yards all day. Brass is 2.005 +- 0.002 and I seat the bullets 10 off the lands with Federal primers.

    If you don't use/have bushing dies, apply a light crimp the the cartridge using a Lee Collet crimper in 308.

    Thanks for the load tips.

    Sierra lists them at $34.84 msrp, so $35 shipped with no tax doesn't seem out of line to me. Its also just an asking price if you are interested make an offer.
