I think that bullet be too heavy for a .308. I have not seen any load data for bullets over 200 grains for .308.
I am Pro-Rights (on gun issues).

So if it hasn't been done before- the question is, can it be done??
What's the process- extrapolate from 180, 190 and 200 grainers and use the same sort of powder??
