Any problems loading 3006 150bt bullets in a 308 case? feeding issues or accuracy issues? loading for M1A and Fal

not a problem. Cannular on the bullet may be different but you would still seat the bullet to the reccomended length for that caliber. Tis done all the time

There shouldn't be. The case is different, but the bullet should be the same.
Mind you, I wouldn't use '06 powder charges:eek: :beer:

Timely thread, I was considering loading some of the 150gr flat base bullets into some .308 that I've got laying around.

The B.C. of the M2 (flat base) isn't as high as the B.C. of the M80 (boat tailed base), so you'll loose speed a bit faster, and the flight of the bullet will drop off sooner. If that's not a big deal, blast away.

I saw no noticable difference between Boattail and Flat base bullets at ranges out to 300 yards. with 7.62 x51 ( 30 cal bullets) accuracy wise. My range max's
out at 300 yards so I know nothing about longer shots with flat base versus boat tail
