    One word of warning as you start to reload - Powder is brand specific. 4350 powder made by Accurate is NOT the same as 4350 made by IMR which is also different than 4350 powder made by Hogdon. As you work up loads from the manual the smallest details matter. I have no idea why the powder companies would label them so similarly when the powders actually have different burn rates. Accurate brand 4064 is NOT identical to IMR brand 4064.....

    And for what its worth you should always start at book minimum loads. My favorite loads and the most accurate in my rifles are almost always the slower loads.

    From Hornady 4th Edition AA2400, IMR 4064, WIN 748, H414 are the only powders listed for the 150 and 170 Gr bullet
    very similiar case dimentions to the 308 Winchester ,so I think that data can be used also for reloading

    The Hodgdon website has data for the 308 ME as does the Hornady 9th.edition manual.There is not a lot of data out there but there is some.
