    Blc-2

    What are your thoughts on this as a 308 powder, i have been offered 2 tubs for 16 each, was thinking of using it as a plinking powder for range as it cheap. I use varget at the moment for my hunting loads.

    Cheers Gavin

    Ive never used it myself but I know a lot of BLC2 has been used in the target world in 308 so it cant be that bad. At 16 per tub you cant go wrong!!

    Go for it !
    At that price it is a snip. I use Varget in my .308 and BLC 2 in my .222 , you should be able to work up a `hunting` load easily with it for .308 usage.

    My business partner and friend is a reserve Marine Marksmanship instructor who specializes in long range shooting. His weapon of choice is a modified, specialized Remington 700 7.62 Nato and BLC-2. BLc-2 is his #1 powder of choice.~Muir

    Apart from some BLC-2 loads seeming to give a biit more muzzle flash. It's an excellent powder in the .308 Win. I use it with the 130 Gr Honady Spire Point and it is a very good combination. A friend used it with 150 Gr Bullets in his M98 sporting Musgrave rifle and it chewed ragged holes out of the targets. Many ragged one hole groups did he shoot with the combination.
