I can't believe I did this. I know better and even was once a reloader. Today I bought another box of 308 ammo, but in 180 gr instead of the usual 150 I get. So I thought, "let's see how much larger in diameter that bullet is!" I actually took one from each box and compared them before I realized what a dummass I was! Dang! And I know how it all works!

so if the 180 is 120% heavier than the 150, and they're made from the same lead, it would have to be 120% wider...... yes?:confused::confused:

And we all thought .45 was the right choice!

DUH, everybody knows that 180 's are 30 grains more dia-meters than 150's!
