    Trail Boss Powder

    After a bit to try and see if I can get some subs working in my 308.

    Or is anyone keen to go halves in a 1.5kg?

    Won't half a 1.5kg tub of TB only give you about three rounds in 308?

    i think i am using 13 grains in the 45/70 for sub load with a 420gr cast lead and 12 for 500gr cast lead. still trying to develop a good load for quietness and accuracy so I think you might get more than 3 rounds in the puny 308.

    7.8gn behind a 150 cast hollow point works nicely in my 16 inch 308.

    1.5 kg TB is the same size container as a 4kg of other powders

    Sure do. @Shootm, PM me if you're keen. Went 1/4s in a big bottle a while ago, but never used it.
