To begin, I am almost 68 and started reloading when I was 20 something so I'm not new to reloading but I know when to ask for information. I am trying to develop a safe load with a pistol powder (Bullseye) pushing a 125 grain hollow point in a .308 Winchester bolt action gun and a 25" barrel. I have established that 7.2 grains of Bullseye with a 168 gr. Moly coated Sierra MK and modified cases (flash hole drilled out) work very well and run about 1000 fps. So, I am guessing that something around 5.4 grains of Bullseye with the 125 grain H.P. might be close. If any of you guys have a recommendation let me please hear from you.
