I've posted this to a couple private messages, so sorry if this is repetitive to a couple of you. I'm loading some new .308 loads. I'm having problems with excessive bullet drop. The ballistic charts show approx. 2" drop from 100 to 200 and 8" from 200-300. I'm getting approximately a 5" drop from 100 to 200 yards. I'm checking velocity through the chrono tomorrow (Sat) - so hopefully I get a response fairly quickly. My question - If I load the the maximum charge per the Hornady manual and my velocities are still lower than the published velocities for the powder and bullet I'm using, will it hurt to go higher? I know to watch for signs of high pressure, but was wondering is velocity and pressure proportionate?
