I am working to develop a reduced recoil load for my Armalite AR-10. The Hodgdon on-line reloading manual says that you can use H4895 powder at 60% of the maximum load listed in their manual to make reduced loads. The max load for a 150 grain bullet in 0.308 is listed as 45.5 grains. Since I would like to use 150 grain bullets I was thinking to start at 27.5 grains (45.5 grains X 0.6 = 27.3 grains) and work up to the minimum load of 43.0 grains. I imagine the action won’t cycle at the lower loads; but I am hoping that at some point the gun will start cycling. My question is this: Does anyone know if there are any safety concerns with this idea? Thanks much in advance for your help.
