    MK 316 MOD 0 propellant? Found

    Does anyone know what propellant and the grains of powder that FCC (ATK) will be using for the new 308 cartridge which is supposed to replace the M118LR?

    I know that the case is a new match case, FCC gold medal match primer, and a Sierra MatchKing 175 grain projectile.

    I was going to attach a pdf document that NAVSEA put out on the load, but for some reason, the upload was stopped (said that the extension pdf is not allowed). I can send it by pm (maybe) or email.

    If the info at the snipers hide is correct, the propellant is IMR 4064 @ 41.745 grains.

    Doesn't surprise me. It's not the first time the .mil has used IMR 4064 in a precision round
    .308 Howa 1500 w/24" heavy varmint barrel
    .223 Howa 1500 w/24" heavy varmint barrel

    hehehe...Adam, I never knew that I wanted to do so...but now, maybe I will. Maybe that's what I've been missing to be able to win the Nathan Hale Trophy.
