I bought a small quantity of AP projectiles that I plan to load for my .308. I would like some suggestions for a load with CFE or ARComp. I may be able to score some other powders, but I have those two on hand.

Well use data for whatever weight they are... ~145 or 163...

39 grains of h 322 will work for 163 grain.

I was concerned about using load data for equivelant weight lead bullets. These projectiles are much longer than standard lead core projectiles.

Had no problems with my loads doing this. Just work up carefully watching for pressure signs.
