    Your load would look like the one I will be trying to duplicate @MSL. What barrel twist do you have? I am looking at a 1-12 twist in my Bergara and as second choice an old Remington 783 with 1-10 twist.

    Cheers

    Thanks for that. Encouraging it that it would appear that I will be able to get one or both rifles shooting the 130gr

    Cheers

    Yes I doubt you will have trouble with either. 130gr is light for calibre in .308

    Agreed weight wise. But from recent discussion I believe it is not the weight but the length of the projectile. The all copper projectiles are longer length than a corresponding weight lead projectile and hence why generally a faster twist rate is needed.
    My understanding from all the recent discussions.....but that said, I fairly confident.

    Cheers

    its a funny thing when you get into using monos...if you can stoke the lighter ones along fast enough safely,the heavies will never (on paper anyway) catch up energy wise,well not untill you get out past 3-400 yards which isnt really mono territory anyway.
    fella in states did it all on graph with 270 the 110 Vs 130grn thing and the 110grn won hands down..I queried it and looked into it and it stacked up. from the few animals Ive dropped with the 110s in 270 I do think they rather good...the 30 cal version SHOULD be at least as good...
    man you fellas are stoking the ol 308 up hot.....

    I used to run the 130's. 50gr of h335 going 3010fps out of an 18". I found them to be the most devastating projectile sub 200y, all shots passed straight through even on Sambar. I've always wondered about the 110s being more effective getting them going faster.

    Yep I ran the 130ttsx at a bit over 3200fps from 22" shot quite a few reds with it the furtherst being around 350y, over 250y I had slightly delayed kills and used a Amax load for open country.
    Never recovered one in over 30 reds shot tho I did recover the blue plastic tip once.
    They need impact velocity to work good.

    Yes for sure the hardest hitting bit once it slows down I had the same with slower kills especially on reds. I'll try find some photos tomorrow. A fallow buck I shot at 150y had a beer can entry hole hit then a red yearling in the vitals at 250y was still very alive when I got up to it. Have since gone to 168eldms since moving South.
