    Some of the old surplus .308 shot decently and made great plinking ammo, some was horrible and was blasting ammo at best. As posted, the...

  9. Bfh_auto liked valleyforge.1777's post in the thread Load data.

    I use CFE 223 powder to load 30-30 rounds and it works very well for me. Hornady has load data and so does hodgden for 150 grain and 170...
