fly, i am a newbie also.these guys on here have taught me a lot. listen to em. they know of what they speak. i was looking at your thread and your grains per load.
the lyman book calls out for a 168 grain bullet to use 40.0 grains to start out with. then work up from there
. i only say this because you are a newbie. as am i. and you should start out small and work up.
load up 5 cases, using the 40 grains of imr 4064 .[ my go to powder also] shoot them. see how they do
then up your grains by 1/2 grain increments. shoot, ck em out. to see which load grain is best suited for you
also. go invest in a lyman 49th edition reloading hand book. you will find that imr 4064 is the best choice for a 308
the $27.00 is well worth the investment
The Constitution does NOT grant us the right to keep and bear arms.....it acknowledges it.......its very important to understand the difference. The minute that we accept the premiss that the government grants us this right, we must also accept that it can rescind this right. The right to keep and bear arms, as correctly noted by The Founders, is given to us by God....period, end of discussion.
