    I think I've now got a good elk and/or African load for my son's .308 Win.

    44.5gr of RL15
    165gr North Fork Bonded Cores
    CCI BR-2 Primer

    On a somewhat windy day....

    EDIT: By the way a very nice recoil load too with no pressure signs. I've taken this bullet up to 46 grains of RL15 with again no pressure signs.

    I'd stop right there. As Emo Phillips used to say, "We have a winner!"

    Prudence would call for stopping, but curiosity will win out. I'm going to have to see how 180gr bullets will work in this gun.
