hey all I just aquired a new NEF survivor in .308 win with the bull barrel and it seems to love my current target load of 22.5gr BD/ 150gr hor fmjbt seated to cannalure. .75"@100 are really starting to bore me. So I was looking around the net and saw some cheap 30 carbine bullets and got to thinking.....cheap plinking loads anyone? The only thing I don't know is will a 1:10 twist stabilize the 110 gr pill? Not looking for sub moa loads just say min. of vicious clay pidgeon at 100?

wadda yall think? should I give 'er a whirl or am I just wasting my time?

Try 27.5 grs to 31.0 grs max of SR4759 behind a 110 RN Carbine bullet. Do not attempt to shoot thru a spider web at max- the bullet won't make it. Velocity at max 2700'ps+. Otherwise, 19.0 grs of SR4759 is a neat plinker load with the Carbine bullet. If you have never shot reduced loads, you need to PM me. There are things you NEED to know about reduced loads and resulting brass issues.
