308 load

If I hand load a 308 with a 130gr or 140gr bullet, would it produce similar performance to a 7mm-08?

Considering your using same weight bullet, same case (almost) and can I assume use the same powder and powder weight?

I understand the bullet will be slightly different shape and have different BC.

thanks

Honestly mate, I would assume nothing. The load data is pretty much freely available. There are almost certainly some powders with published data for both 308 and 7-08, but check the powder company websites.

No for these reasons. How could it? ~Muir
