I have a load for my 308Win of 44.5 grains RL15 with a 150 grain Hornady flat base spire point on top and CCI primers in Lapua cases to a COL of 2.735 inches. I haven't shot any deer with this load yet but have a sneaking suspicion it isn't going very fast, in fact it might not be quite fast enough to be deer legal. I hope to shoot it over a chrony very soon, maybe next weekend. It is accurate and there are no signs of pressure, I had worked up to 46 grains but it wasn't as accurate.
Now, I've looked at all the books I can for 150 grain loads in 308 with RL15 and the starting and max loads vary greatly. In fact I've seen some books print 45 - 49 so their starting load is above my current accurate load. Sierra print 40.4 to 44.8 and as that was the most conservative load it was the one I was following.
Is there anyone here with some internal ballistics software that could run my load to see what my velocity might be out of the 22.71 inch barrel on my Blaser? I only load for one rifle and so can't justify the expense of such software but would like some guidance as to whether I'm deer legal or not and I'm also interested to see how the actual chrony figures will match up to the software. Or are there any online resources that I could use to run my load?
