    I tried shooting the 230s with RL-17 in my 308. Started with 45 gr and worked up to 46 for vel of 2460 with 22" barrel.

    I would say you could safely start at 45 and work up to perhaps 48-49 grs.

    Wow, shooting 230's out of a 308. It seems under 600 yards this would be devastating. Any idea of the verlocity at 600? with a 230 griain bullet?

    For my 210 VLD load, I have had excellent luck with Varget.
