What's your favorite bullet for reloading the .308?
.308 Marlin Express. Sorry, I just assumed since we were in this forum we would be talking the Marlin calibers.308 winchester or 308 Marlin Express??
sdkidaho, There was a lot of assuming going on in this thread, maybe a wake up to those of us with experience to slow down with our responses, REALLY read the original post, clarify the question if necessary, and answer thoughtfully. I have been guilty of this too. Reloading is fun and very rewarding, always double check internet forum suggestions with a credible reloading manual or manuals. Don't be afraid to ask questions, there are lots of people here with much more experience with reloading than me, and I started in 1978...The key to enjoying your reloading is safety, we are all responsible for that..308 Marlin Express. Sorry, I just assumed since we were in this forum we would be talking the Marlin calibers.
I'm assuming the bullets are the same for both Winchester and Marlin Express - .308 diameter, so the 30 cal bullets should all work - correct?
So you're thinking the polymer tips on these are potentially too hard for the tube magazine?Most Nosler bullets like the ballistic tip and accubond have a hard polymer tip.
Thank you. I'll be more specific - is this a bullet I can use?
AccuBond ? Nosler
30 caliber .308
Just wanting to make sure that there is no difference in bullet between the Marlin and Winchester. I understand that the case is different and I understand the concerns with a tube magazine vs a box magazine.
