TY, for the history lesson Statzer.
Haveing both rounds I'm know about the length differance, and it's one of the reasons I chose to purchase 708 cases.
My 708 rifle has a really loong chamber throat!
As an example a Sierra 150 Game King will leave the case before I reach the lands, I know it's only a .020 diff, but i want every bit i can get.
I take that back,,that's the 308,,but the 708 does have a chamber neck that's at 2.071.
Now Lapau is some really good brass,,really good price too,,
So if chamber length is an issue for ya,, necking up the .243 might be a better option for ya. They are the same case according to dimentional masurements.
