For 2014, Lapua will introduce a new .308 Win load the company says is specially tailored to shorter barreled, semi-automatic rifles like the AR-10 and SCAR-H.
According to Lapua, the load is designed for optimal performance from barrels as short as 12″ and as long as 20″. The load uses a 170 grain FMJ-BT bullet and achieves 2460 fps from a 16″ barrel. A low flash powder used in the load.
The company claims this round “routinely” produces sub-MOA groups at 300 meters with “quality auto rifles.”

Yea, i like the sound of that! That means the bullet will be able to outshoot the shooter, in my case. ;)
Im pretty sure it would take an act of God to bring the price to .40 a round!

The .308 Winchester ammunition from Lapua Corp at Brownells runs from $33 to $98 per box. Draw your own conclusions...

Lapua makes some of the best competition ammo. Unfortunately you pay for it. My bet is a box of 20 is $100 for this stuff.

Not the exact ammo, but ballpark in both ammo and price. Give or take a buck a round. ;)
