Reloading pulled 308, 147gr bullet pulled w/IMR 4208 xbr. How many grains to start off is good load data? I was using Hodgdon H4895 38 grains and worked well and due to the powder shortage had to buy the IMR 4208 XBR two cans to reload and this powder I never used. Using mostly lake city ammo brass. I shoot different semi autos in 308 and need some direction from you all . Thanks God Bless our troops.DISHOUT

I think Nosler shows some data for 150 gr bullets using IMR 8208 XBR. RAAMAC did some extensive testing and posted his findings somewhere here.

IIRC the charge weight started at 39 grs and maxed out around 41 grs.

I use 8208 in my 223 and have quite a bit. I'm going to try it with 150 gr sierras or noslers when I get through playing with Win 748.
