On my end, there is a problem with the video.

What is your 308 recipe?  I played around with Trail Boss, lost interest due to significant SDs in velocity.

hmm
I wonder why?
it was a load from Southwest Ammunuition.. 175 SMK
one of our guys did a test on several of their ammo offerings and it all tested VERY well..
This ammo was quite accurate in this rifle

You might be able to reduce that SD by using any other double based pistol powder. A friend just told me about his new subsonic .308 load using Alliant ClayDot w/168 gr Amax, but just called him for load info and he told me that he got better accuracy with Trailboss. I've used Unique in rifles for 30 yrs. 231 has good possibilities...
