He could use the factory "reduced recoil" loads put out by Remington & Federal in .308 with no problemo.

I didn't even think about that possibility! I almost never buy factory, and reload my own stuff (except for Mil surp ammo.)

I load for mine with a 150 gr. bullet at about .300 Savage levels or below. At about 2400 fps. I mostly shoot paper with mine.

It's about a foot or more high at 100 yards. Needs a taller front sight.
