I contacted a commercial source for 308Win that is subsonic, looking into the costs now of it. Made in Switzerland.

You'll have a 2nd person shooting subsonic ammunition on the board if this works out. Very Happy

dont know why I miss this ..

Mr D. once you get to shooting subs, your life changes.
You will no longer like the big BOOM of the hyper velocity.
Your expenses for ammo is heavy on the projectile instead of powder..

Welcome to the "ahum".. club?

you can make subs 308 by using 9 grain of RED DOT on smaller than 150gn projectiles.
But, beware, it may create high pressure peak on your gun.

There are a few references to these loads on the net.
One of them is "the Load" ie. 13 grains of red dot in almost any type of cartridge over .30 cal.
members.shaw.ca/cronhe...eLoad.html
The 13 grains of Reddot would give about 1600fps with 150gn projectile.

I found for a subsonic load in my gun (ruger 77MKII) 9 grains of red dot would give about 1100fps consistently, and accuracy of about 1.5inch group can be obtained with 130 grains projectiles.

There are a few newer loads using Trailboss - some say that they are good, but I still cannot find the right combo for it.

RUAG also make 300 Whisper loads.
I emailed them a few years ago for them, never got any reply tho.
Maybe they are not interested to service overseas market??
It would be cool to have a few factory loads to compare with my own homebrews.

gelandangan, Are you familiar with SSK industries and DJ Jones? (I’m thinking you are!!!)

Also Cor-bon ammo makes 300 whisper ammo. But I don’t know if it’s available to you or if you can have it imported.

Yes I am familiar with SSK and DJ jones.
I am copying one of their design after all Razz

Corbon USED to make some 300 Whisper ammo.
The key word is USED.. and that was about 5 years ago..
as far as I know, they do not do it anymore.

I have contacted SSK to find out if they will sell a few 300 whisper cases to me.
The reply I received was that DJ can only supply 221 fireball brass, not formed 300 Whisper.

Currently, I got about 1000 brass made by Keith Davies (he no longer make cases)
sent to me in a very convulsed route due to
the US law about exporting firearms parts and the Australian law about importing the same.

I am glad the Whisper do not stretch nor stress the case at all.
I predict reuse ability for the shells to be 20 - 30 times before the neck splits.
So this is a good economical caliber to use once the components are gathered.

- Mr D. My apology for hijacking your thread. But it is all in the topic of Subsonics caliber.

Hum, whats wrong with me?
Cant say mate! Very Happy
Do you mean:
I am a bit overweight,
I have beady eyes,
my breath stank in the morning,
unlike the rest of the gang I shoot low velocity ammo at very short range
And I have tendency to ramble on different topics?
Other than those,
I am absolutely perfect.. Angel at least thats what Mrs Gelan said just before our wedding day... Nananana
Never mind what happened after that.. you are too young to understand Very Happy

Hey, Gelandangan, I send stuff to Oz like reamers and dies, and even sent 100 Rigby cases once, and never had an issue. I label the box machine tools and declare it as a gift. BJ

Vihta Vuori is available in the States.


I must say that the sub-sonic thing (under 1083 FPS) has my interest!!!
But I’m concerned with the safety of a 308 case with such a small charge of pistol powder. scared
Should I decide to explore this avenue, I think the 300 Whisper would be the way to go.

Besides it uses the 221 case. Very Happy

BJ,
Due to the current hoolabaloo on the guns sports, it seems prudent to declare everything rather than to be stamped as a criminal for some trivial stuff.
Declaring restricted items delivery as a GIFT does not make it ok.
I also do not want the Customs officers to relax this law too much..
there are a lot of uncouth persons out there that like to cross the line.
Those people make bad names in our sport.

Reamers and dies are allowed to be imported without permit, but
ammunition or parts of ammunition are NOT allowed.
I know of this when I import those cases.
To export them you need to give your (the senders) personal detail, and then to import them, I need to get a permit which includes my personal details, genuine reason to acquire and permission to keep the item.

Truly it is us villain that keep them busy.. not those good drive by shooters..
