Can't help on the 300BLK, but for 308:

If it's a bolt gun, you'll want the ~175gr bullet of choice and 43gr Varget (Hodgdon Extreme, of course) and a ~2.825" COAL

For an autoloader, same but you're prolly better off with 40-41gr H4895 (also HE powder). 42-43 Varget works too, but burns a bit slow for the gas guns.

i recognized hodgdon in your name, but i assumed it meant something else as it had 'extreme' after it.

Mine is still on the market over at Clublex. I just can't bring myself to post 50 random times to list it here haha (my ID over there is turbotron) It's certainly hard finding a value for these when there's only 4 or 5 of these for sale at any given time. Like all these posts indicate the condition and prices of each are all over the board. Bring a Trailer auction sheds a little light as to what it's worth but not a ton. So you're kinda left to throw some numbers out there until one sticks. I guess like what Fractional said, it's worth whatever your willing to pay for it.

I paid over 9k for mine (more if you include tax). Some may think I overpaid, but to me it was worth piece of mind.

When purchased: Sport Design, manual with LSD, 104k miles, single owner car, lived in Nevada all its life, sold in Socal. Didn't have service history so I did the timing belt, water pump and spark plugs after purchase. Body has minor scuffs but interior is impeccable, probably garaged, no sticky dash! At this point all i've done is waste money on gas and tons of suspension components that have crumbled after I lowered the car, so self induced costs really.

Tl; Dr

If it's in great shape and it's the car you want, you will have to pay over market value to get it.

I just purchased a manual 2002 for, (you all will hate me), 3200!! Only has 160k on it and the body is clean besides a couple scratches. It’s on evo 9 wheels and coilovers. The only issue is that it has a slow coolant leak and it misfires on startup, goes away after 10 seconds. I had no issues passing inspection and it drives amazing. I’d say 3200 is a very low price for a manual in good condition, I’d say a nice one is worth 5-7k
