    Yeh that works.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yep. 100 yards (measured) mild load of 45.5 gr AR2208 150gr Hornady interlock, the larger group was same load with 150gr Sierra spitzers (these generally shoot better with a hotter load, I have had good accuracy with 46.5gr AR2208 with these) I'm picking that less than 1/2 moa is good enough for hunting, so I probably won't dick around with other loads for this one as I have about 30 other rifles to sort out as well.

    Interlocks just shoot in any 308.
    Good pills.
