Quick load question, 41.2gr 3031, 168 hpbt

Can someone with quick load run a quicky for me? Socom M1A, LC case, 34 primer. 2.8 oal, 41.2gr imr3031 under a 168gr sierra hpbt.

This load shoots terrific in my new 308AR (better than FGMM), adjustable gas block. 16" barrel. Comes up only 30fps shy of FGMM in the same gun. I have 42gr of 3031 listed as max in 2 different places, Lyman and IMR.

Whats the possibility of this being ok to run in the SOCOM?

I’ve yet to see a reloading manual document load data using lake city or “mil surp” cases, every one I’ve seen has been using a commercial case. I can’t speak to quick load, but I wasn’t able to get really good performance from 39.5 x 168 grain projectiles (plural) from my SOC16. 175’s have done really well. I began working up and got to 40.2 grains of 3031 and got a 168 load the rifle and I liked.
