I have several hundred .308 cartridge cases that were used as blanks and was wondering if they could be utilized for light hunting loads, any thoughts??

I don't think I would try to salvage those cases for a rifle load of any kind. You might be able to trim them back for a wildcat load of some kind, but the ones I have on hand don't seem to be of the same quality as actual once fired 7.62/.308 brass. .308 brass is so cheap, I just can't see messin' with it. Besides, one day, blank brass might be far more valuable to collectors than regular brass!
