    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.”
