.308 loads need help!! in Reloading Posted 24 minutes ago · Edited 17 minutes ago by 98Z5V · Report reply 40 minutes ago, Magen24v said: I’ve got Fed cases, Fed 210 primers, Sierra 168 B T H P bullets, and IMR 4895 powder. I’m thinking about starting my load at 43 gr. What do you guys think? Have you been reloading for more than a minute? Experienced, is what I'm asking. 1st post, no background, and no info on your experience with reloading mentioned. Please elaborate. Maybe hit the Intro Section, and tell us about yourself. Before we give out load data that will blow up in your face. Hope that makes sense. Questions about your gun hardware will be inbound, shortly. Recoil system details, gas system details. The usual things we ask of people. Might as well just give up those details right now, and shortcut the process. You might not even have a load problem - but a gun problem. You always have to fix the gun, first. Otherwise, you're wasting your time pissing around with loads tailored to a gun that doesn't work, just to try to get it to work. Rip up the Intro Section. In the mean time, check out this thread right here - this is the "usual" thatwe need from people, just to figure out the gun, first, which is the most important step. Working gun, THEN, working loads for a working gun... If we have to waterboard you for information about your gun, we become quite pissed. Hope that makes sense, too.
