    Matt,

    I was just wondering if you completed your analysis to determine that 43.2 was correct? I have not tried this load yet but was thinking about doing some now that I have some times on my hands.

    By the way the Sniper Match Accuracy .308 load developed at Marksmanship Training Unit Armory loading room is.....same brass, same primer, same bullet...but uses 41.5 grains of IMR-4895 for 2,600 fps. Used in both M-14 and Remington 40X Rifles.

    They have a production milling machine that turns out Stainless Steel Douglas barrels with 1-12" twist profiled and ready for building. Each one is air gauged by one man, and any minute issues, it immediately goes in the trash can...broke my heart to see that!

    So, both powders work very well, but 41.5 IMR 4895 is their favorite.....2.800 OAL, they were using Federal Brass when I was there, but Lapua is probably a bit better if you can afford it...the Federal 210 BR primer is the finest in the world.
