    I read in a different thread that people are downloading 300 WM to 308 levels with good success. Does anyone have a recipe for this? I have 110 grain and 130 grain bullets, but the loads in my manuals for these bullets don't seem to be any less hard recoiling than the 150 and 180 grain bullets that I'm firing. If I could get it down to 308 levels, my son might be willing to use the 300 WM. Thanks.

    I have a recipe for running heavier bullets at .308 velocities. Specifically 168 gn SMKs using IMR 3031. I dont have it on hand but can dig it up if you are interested.
