    308 loads

    Hi i need a new load for my Tika 308 , 150grain balistic tips or similar. I was using H450 with great results but as the powder is now longer available and mine has run out some new loads from yourselfs would be helpfull

    Hi Kevin

    I've just - literally - started reloading my Sauer 90 .308. My RFD was very helpful and sold me some Hodgdon H4831, not neccesarily because it was the best powder for that specific rifle, but because it could be used for all the calibres i use .308, 7mm Rem Mag and .303. I always used the Norma Nosler BT's and the rifle could shoot through the same hole 3 times ( I say the rifle, because I take no credit for it's accuraccy). Now i'm trying to reload my own Nosler BT's into used Norma shells i'm gona have a challenge to beat that. I'll let you know how the powder gets on and if you find anything that suits yours i'd be obliged if you could let me know

    Kevin,

    A decent dose of Vit 140 should see you right.

    Good luck,

    +1 although I just use benchrest primers. 43.5- 44grains of n-140 seams to work really well.
