A few tips... Fire form your new brass before loading your target ammo.. That is, just load it and shoot it. 2nd time around brass is always better when it's fire formed to your chamber.
LEE makes a collet die, very handy for keeping case concentricity.
Make sure all your cases are the exact same length. After you trim, make sure there are no brass burrs in the neck by using a chamfer tool inside and out.
I personally prefer thr RCBS bench rest bullet seating die. It ensures perfect bullet alignment and has a micrometer for OAL adjustment.
Hodgden BENCHMARK is a great powder for lighter bullets in the .308
...just a few things that come to mind...
