I'm currently using it - slight PITA, as you need to ream the primer pockets, as all Hornady 308 commercial match ammunition has crimped primers - if you're talking about once fired commercial match brass that is. I don't know why Hornady felt they needed to do this but they have been doing it for several years now.

I haven't purchased just 308 brass as a component but would think it would be excellent brass cases for reloading.

The once fired 308 Hornady Match brass I bought didn't need the primer pockets reamed out.

Never experienced much differences in Brass altho I can not recall ever using Hornady.
For 308 I have quite an assortment, some of most major brands. My guess it will be OK. ps
