Looking at picking up some and wonder if any of the members have any data with them. I see that polygunbags (http://www.polygunbag.com/.308%20AP%20bullets%20larger%20view.html) Has them and so does Pat's. PGB lists theirs as 152G and Pat's has theirs @ 147.

Are they the same? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

I spoke with Pat last week, and he said his .308 AP came from Israeli ammo.

Ive been loading them in pulldown remington cases with 46.5 grns ww748 and a CCI magnum primer. It is a compressed load. No signs of pressure, and point of impact is very close to my ausie F-4. Accuracy is about 2 moa, which is typical for my G-1 build. Seating these bullets is a pain, as some have a slightly different profile and seat to different depths. I am seating in the bottom cannelure and using a slight roll crimp.
