    .308 velocity

    Just out of curiosity, how fast can you boys push along a 150 grainer from your .308? I'm having a slow day and rather bored so thought I would ask. I already have a load etc anyway but it interests me to see how you do. Cheers

    Hi Dean, was 222 but front sight removed for screw cutting so probably 21" as ramp screw hole had to be removed.
    46.0gn of Vhit 150 seems less of a snap than 44.0gn Varget, no real difference in accuracy though from a stalking point of view.
