Loading M2 Ball Pulldown in 308 ?

I went by Jeff Bartlett's yesterday and grabbed up the very last of his M2 Ball Pull Downs for $12/100. They look New, and I couldn't pass it up!

How are you guys loading these in 308 / 7.62 x 51?

I assume you leave the OAL at 2.800, but what is the best powder and charge weight for a 'Plinking' load?

7.62 x 51 Reloading

I'm using the NATO brass trimmed to 2.005, with a 175 Sierra Match King BT.

With 40.0 IMR 4064.

Primers are either CCI-BR-2 or CCI-250 for the bolt gun.

CCI-34 for the SOCOM16.

147 gr. M80 heads with 42.0 grs. of IMR4895 or IMR4064 is my standard plinking round. About 2550 fps. and very easy on the gas system. Accuracy is pretty good but the trigger puller needs more practice.

Close enough to actual M2 ball.
