Powderman--Thx for explaining! That eases my mind considerably! Looks like 30Cal has you covered for a load. Hope it works well for you. I'm not big into .308 myself.
Yr Dept. doesn't issue you practice ammo of the same quality as your duty ammo?? And they expect you to be a precision rifleman?? Sounds like the politicians are in charge once again. "Yes,but, whine, whine, well, you know, the budget, the voters, taxes, whine, whine." Sigh. BTDT; my sympathies.
