Load data for a .308 110 v-max with Benchmark 8208

Post by rwhitey » 14 Jun 2019, 10:38 am

Hey guys,

Just new to reloading and can’t find any data for 110 Vmax using benchmark 8208. Is there a possibility of substituting another round for the Vmax so I can get a starting point for my charge?

Yes you can substitute another projectiles data to start you off. You could try 46 grains and increase by 0.3 of a grain until you run out of room. 110 grain pills are very light for a 30 cal, what are you using them on?

Nothing wrong with a 110 gn projectile in a 308.
I have shot plenty of 110 gn M1 soft point projectiles in mine.
Why the choice of 8208?
It is a bit slow for that weight of projectile.
I use BM2, but 2207 might even be better but I haven't tried it.
