    So I rushed out to the range today before work and tested out 2 loads I have been working on for my DPMS 308 with a 16" barrel. 1st load 150 grain hornady fmj w/canalour line 42 grains of IMR 4895 Lake City brass col 2.717. 2nd load 168 grain Hornady A Max 41.5 grains 4895 Lake City brass col 2.790. Both loads shot at 1" @ 100 yds. No failures, jams, or problems. Now I just need to run it over my chronograph to get the velocity. Below is a picture of the military brass do the primers look flat? Any signs of pressure that anyone can see? There are three prices of remington brass for comparison. Thought feed back?
    Thank you,
    Sb
