    Starting off with a baby mold lol. I haven't found a multi cavity mold with a profile/weight combo I liked......also this was dirt cheap. Could not pass it up.

    Nope....as fast as they'll go and not melt in my barrel. I have 1/10 twist so heavies are GTG

    I don't know.....this will be my first experience with 308. I know for 223 I can run them 22/2400fps with gas checks and powdercoated,without issue. This is over a chronograph,not guess work.
    I expect I'll be able to do the same,tho I want at much as possible out of this rifle as projectiles are expensive. The goal is as close to fmj speeds/performance as possible.
    If it is/or not do-able.....I want to find out first hand.

    I shoot em subsonic. That’s a pure lead that went through a gallon water jug and half a fone book at 100yds. Pretty good expansion.
