A full power .30-'06 load using 50 grs. of an IMR powder like 4064 today in 2007 costs 15 cents a pop, just for powder, at 140 rounds per pound (if you are lucky enough to still find new powder at $21/lb.)

In a 26” barrel the 140 grain Berger can be driven to 3200FPS without excess pressure, equaling the ballistic ability of the .264 Win mag while using 7-10 grains less powder to do so. With the introduction of the Hornady 143gr ELD-X and the forthcoming 147 ELD-match, this chambering just keeps getting more fun.
Written by Barry. Saw a couple video's showing 308 penetration with various bullets and the top winner was the 150 gr TTSX followed closely by the 168gr.....entrance holes and damage through wet telephone books looked about the same and the bullets all held together and most importantly, no lead residue which I am beginning to agree with you on.

Re: Best twist rate for 150 gr .308 bullets? I'd imagine tooling costs will enter into the picture. One tool set to do all 30 caliber barrels= lower production costs. Makes less sense for the 308 than either the '06 or 300WM since these two can actually handle bullets heavy enough to use the tighter twist.
