V N150 for 308 Win ??

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

The books/manuals I have list Viht N140 for the 150gr bullet. I don't have that powder in stock but have plenty of N150. Now that powder is a touch slower burning, would it work in the 308Win ?
The 140 is suggested to be primed with a standard primer. Should I stick with that or would slightly reducing the load of N150 and a magnum primer work. Suggestions appreciated.

If I go with N150 I would be loading firstly with 43grns N150 ..... 46.5grns is listed average for the 165gr bullet ... then work according to accuracy and pressure signs, not in that order obviously.

Many thanks, I was not far off what I thought grain wise for the powder, looks like around 44g might do the job and see a standard primer required. Very helpful many thanks.
