I’ve settled on an initial hunting load for my .308, to get me out with my own ammo (125gn ballstic tip, 48.5gn N140, cci 200 primer, 70mm COL) which gives me the following performance from my blaser .308 through the T4 moderator.
100M = 1” high (sub 1” groups every time with 8* 56 scope)
150M = zero
200M = 2” low
I haven’t chrony’d but calculation puts it about 2995 fps, 2490 ft lbs
The case is full to the bottom of the neck, so inserting the boat tails causes no problems of pinching the powder/bulging the neck, and it is very soft to shoot, much nicer than the factory federal 150gn that i have. There are no pressure signs on the primers or the case, and extraction is easy.
Vhit data quotes 49.9 as max for this powder.
Question.. should i push it with a bit more powder, or should i just stop here?
