Hi Nathan.

Got a good accurate subsonic load sorted for the 16"bbl T3. A bit like throwing a brick really.

200gn Lapua subsonic projectile loaded to bottom of 1st canular
10gn Trail Boss
Fedal 210 primer
Remington cases
Average 1010fps MV
Load fills 80% of case
No special reloading procedures. Simply full length sized and trimmed (no annealing or drilling of flash hole).
Yet to try them on game but hopefully soon.

PS. These projectiles stabilized out of my 1:11 twist barrel even below 900fps.

Here's my load

220 round nose hornady projectile
10gn trail boss
fed magnum primers
Winchester brass
mv 1050fps

flash holes not drilled

Brent please use magnum primers !!! there is still abit of an air gap, you don't want a stuck projectile in your barrel !

Re: .308 Subsonic load
Yeah. Thanks Chris.
210 was actually a mistake. I am using 215 primers. Must be more careful with my typing.
I have now loaded up to 10.2gn for 1030fps MV and 2.75" OAL. Load density is over 80% with this seating depth.
Still shooting very well.

Re: .308 Subsonic load
