    Question Reload the 308. for the PTR91K ???

    What high grain bullet can you use for reloading? ( PTR 91)


    can a HK91/ PTR 91 take 168 gr or higher? the chamber and pressure??
    bullet manufactures make 308. from 110 to 208gr.

    I did use the search function for this.

    I don't want to damage my rifle, and I want to buy in bulk 2000 bullets.

    Thanks!

    This information from my reloading log all loaded and shot through a chronograph by me .
    Winchester 7.62 mm147grain fmj HK 91 average speed 2539 feet per second.
    Winchester 7.62 mm147grain fmj M1A scout squad average speed 2655 feet per second
    Winchester 7.62 mm147grain fmj Remington 700 24inch barrel average speed 2757 feet per second.
    These are three guns I reload 308 for and I want to be able to use any 308 round in any 308 I have best loads are.
    IMR 4064 44 grains 147 to 150 bullet in HK 91 2548 feet per second
    With the lower feet per second speed on the HK a 168 grain bullet IMR4064 41.1 grains feet per second is 2358
    I have tried to keep close to what the Winchester load is.

    I will try to find a magazine from the 80's where they reloaded for the HK 91 .
