Thread: .308 cast boolit load data

    .308 cast boolit load data

    I'm a noobie here.. looking for some load data for a .308 bolt gun. I cast using a lee mold. The data on the mold says 150 grains, but after lubing, they weigh between 158 and 160 grain. I'm using a hornady gas check. I would like to shoot these boolits around 2000fps. Looking for load data and and suggestions. Thanks

    Any stick powder between burn rate of IMR 4198 and IMR 4895 will do it. Alliant 2400 , SR-4759, IMR 4227 will work too but I like the slower powder. IMR 4895 at the slow end of reliable ignition at low pressure would be my first choice. RX7 is one I have around here too.

    If you tell us what gun you have and if it's a 1-10”or 1-12” twist barrel it makes a difference. If it's a 1-11” twist M-14 than that's nice to know too.
