    Anyone have load data using Tac, IMR4895 or RL15 for 147 grain tracer projectiles in 308 Win? The projectile is longer than standard 147 grain bullets and these will probably be used in a mag fed semi auto.

    Or maybe someone might confirm my suspicion of using 165 grain start data?

    Just use data for 150 grain bullets and you'll be fine. I've loaded tracers in 5.56, 7.62 and .30-06, just using data for bullets of the same weight.

    Just be careful where you shoot tracers, as they will start fires. You should also clean your barrel right after you shoot them, as some leave residue in the barrel.

    Hope this helps.
