mehavey states: [QUOTE[The military 308/7.62 load duplicates the military 30-06 load -- intentionally.[/QUOTE]I've heard this before. Checking the milspecs on line easily disproves it.

They're the same only in peak pressure specs. Muzzle velocity is a bit lower for the NATO round; it burns less powder. Accuracy specs are almost the same.

If folks would shoot at least 20 to 30 shots per test group trying to find a load that shot the most accurate, I think they would soon learn that a given load will shoot very accurate across different rifles.
