    .300 Blk 140 grn load

    Hi all! Great forum. I purchased an RCBS 7.62MM-130-SPL mold for my AR with a 10.5" barrel, 1/8 twist. Bullets are 140 grains. Give or take a grain. Using gas checks. Sizing them to .308. Any ideas/recommendations for a plinking load?
    Thanks
    Rob

    With GC I assume super, so H110 works fine. Go to Hodgdon reloading website.
    Whatever!

    grubbslinger,
    Just curious. What is the reason you are sizing to .308"? Not criticizing you, just wondering.

    I haven't slugged my bore to check it's actual size. I did notice that almost every post I read here in regards to .300 Blk. Everyone was resizing to .309

    WIN 296 has worked very well for me with 150gr cast, I am almost out of the 8lb keg I purchased. I also size to .309.
