Today for the first time I reloaded some 308's and test them. Although I've been reloading 223, 9mm, and 45ACP, few others for a while I was nicely shocked when I looked down at my chrono after I took the shots. The velocity was slightly lower then I want in the end but I started with real low powder charge (as always) to see where I was at (from book numbers) and where to go from here. I was using standard CCI large Primer (in fact it was in the old diamond logo CCI's). In the end I used AR-Comp powder, got an average of 2559 velocity with a standard deviation of 2.4. I didn't neck turn or do anything special just cleaned it and ran it through the dies on the rock chucker. I hope this SD keeps up. The best SD I get with 223's is about the the 6 range so ya extremely happy to see a 2.4 with 308. Thought I'd randomly blurt my happiness out.. thanks for reading my happy ramblings.
