    Sub sonic .308 loads

    Some time ago somebody posted on here a request for info on above. I recall reading an article by Bruce Potts. Last night I rediscovered it, Shooting Sports Feb 2014 PAGE 102-4. I will pdf and email if you send me a PM. I also think BP has done another similar article/piece and I am still searching for it. It will turn up in time.

    I looked at this idea for my 30.06 which is effectively the same calibre, but it was not possible to get it deer legal. It would need something like a 600 grain bullet if I remember right!

    Having helped a friend put together a .300 Whisper, legal or not, a 200-gr Sierra at 900 fps will stone drop a deer inside 100 yards. He used if for taking deer in a 60-acre plot between two sets of houses.
