Default Notes on reloading the 308 and 243

A couple of things that came to mind on your post. I personally would buy a single ball powder that is designed for the midsize 308 cases. Each powder company makes there favorite 308 class powder. I personally have had good luck with Win 760 in my 3006s so I would try Win 748 with loading data straight from the manual. I agree that using a AMAX bullet on anything but paper or possibly a prairie dog is a mistake. With midsize cases don't worry about using anything but standard large rifle primers. Don't try to squeeze that last 50fps out of a load. Find one that shoots well in the rifle without signs of high pressure and just load up a bunch and shoot......
