    a couple of things.....first, love this forum, very informative & i have learned a lot from just reading and keeping my mouth shut

    Now on to the title...
    i recently came into 7 ammo cans full of 7.62 NATO LC brass,
    was wondering if i can load them up after doing all the necessary prep for my LR-308??

    if so what powder do you all wise ones recommend, not looking for anything fancy, i have a couple hundred 168 BTHP sitting around because i loaded all my .308 brass using IMR 4895 @ 40gr. like i said, nothing fancy.

    if not, i was thinking about selling the brass. How much i sell is depending on recommendations.

    Thanks for all the advice.:wavey:

    The brass is highly desireable unless it came out of a machinegun. Even then, it can be used. Just the usual case prep plus remove the primer crimp.

    We just talked about .308 loads last week. I am using IMR4064 (42.2 gr) and Reloader 15 (42.0 gr - Sierra recommendation for the 168 gr HPBT).

    If I had the brass, I would load it.

    I agree. I have had great luck with LC bras and Reloader 15.
