Ok guys, I've been doing a lot of research and want a 12" .308 bolt gun styled like this little fella

I understand the ballistics and such and know what is lost, but I also get the advantages it has over say .300 BO. I also know it'll make a lot of guys at the range really happy when it's not suppressed

What I want to know is what is yall's experience with them? Any experience out to 400 yards?

I think you'll be OK, you'll just have to work out the dope.  I would probably go with some light match bullets to keep the velocity up as long as you're not going over 500yd.

Thanks for that chart!

I just picked up my AI AE MKIII Covert that has a 14" barrel with a pinned brake bringing it to 16" and was wondering what velocity could be.

OP: Have you thought about going the pinned route?  I plan on shooting it for the first time on Friday and am betting it will not be pleasant for those around me since I have another 7 months before the suppressor is approved.

Here is a link to the solicitation PDF with specs for the ammo.  It is towards the end of the PDF but they basically drop it down to a 130gr bullet.

Actually, now that you mention it, depending upon what suppressor design/mount I use, the stamp may be damn near worthless.... I should've thought about that from a rough guestimation, a yhm QD mount FH is about 2.5" so I'll just be a little under 16"... pinning is probably the smarter route

On a bolt gun I totally agree that pinning is better when so close to 16" with the brake since you don't have a gas block and other crap that you may need to remove in the future.  I about had a stroke when I stuck a rod down the barrel (thought it looked shorter than 16") and found it was just over including the brake.  I couldn't see where it was pinned and welded right away and had to look a bit....I was nervous for about 30 seconds until I found it
