Gotta dig out my .308 dies.
« on: November 18, 2015, 02:38:46 PM »
Have to start reloading .308 again. Ran into a good deal on a Savage model 11 Hog Hunter in .308. Almost no wear on it, already has scope mounts, and a muzzle break on the threaded barrel.


This is the beast.

308 brass is usually available on one of the fora I frequent, also bullet molds.

I do not have a 308 but have used Savage rifles for a long time.  They may not be the prettiest gal at the dance but they sure can dance.  You can also make that rifle into a switch barrel as long as you stay in the same family of cartridges, 22-250, 260, 358 for factory stuff and the sky is the limit for wildcats.  I would really like to build something like a 411 caliber on the 308 case.

I had a .308 but I lost it when my gunsmith died. It like my 30-06's liked 165 grain Nosler BTBT.

My only 308 is at the auction house now, auction is this Saturday. It is a Lithgow Lee Mk IV. I have dies, some brass and a little ammo here yet.

How does that work? It's still your property whether he's alive or dead.
Now, you, on the other hand...that's a whole other story..... L@J
