    308 win still worth having

    I got my first 308 52 years ago, I was 14. A 742 Remington. I still have a few. All the hype about the new calibers 🙄. I reload and shoot weekly. I get amused at the range. 250 yards is easy. After that, the game changes. My favorite now is is a 7-08, 120gr bullets. Light recoil. Just MO. 😁

    Use a grain mill to make your own tumbling media.

    I’ve use rice,add some Turtle Wax rubbing compound. Works better than any thing I’ve used in last 40 years. No red residue inside the case.

    Advice an input for those who reload for 308 Winchester and own 10FCP rifles

    I’ve loaded for .308 for many year. I full length size. They then go in the vibrating tub, I use rice for the media, Turtle Wax paste compound for the agent. Trim to length with Lee hand trimmer. I used 4064 for many years. Switched to Varget. I don’t get the flyers any more.

    How far can you connect?

    Longest shot on whitetail 250 yards. Lot of missed shots less than 50 yards! Thing’s happen fast in the thick brush.
