Haven't tend to this thread for "quite" a while....

Let's talk about the new kid on the block:
Hornady 178 BTHP #30715

This is the bullet they use for their Superformance .308WIN 178BTHP ammo #8077, which is like 100fps faster than any other commercial ammo or even handload ammo.

Reloading book data (ultra conservative):

Seemingly there are quite a lot of "good results" with the #8077 ammo, which proves that this bullet should fly and group well.

Now, it is time to develop some loads for it...... anyone of you got some good recipe?

Good'O RL15, Varget, 4895? Or some new ones like 2000MR, AR-Comp?
