I am looking for information from anyone who has developed loads for .308 for light to medium weight bullets. I have a Savage 99E that I would like to use for coyote and wolf. The 20" barrel and lever action is great for taking on my ATV and snow machine.
I also carry a S&W 6.5" 629 with a 1.5-4X scope in a shoulder rig that is my protector
for bears.:troll:
