They do make a .311 version , that is product #4PL/HL7045 .If you're after the .311 , use the right product number , or you'll end up with the .308 bullet . You might have to order the .311 version . Bruno's has a decent selection of Lapua in stock , but you'd have to call them if you're looking for the .311 .
If you are looking for a .308 bullet , the D-46 ( #4317590 ) is a good choice for mid-range shooting . But it has to be "short-loaded", due to design of the reduced smaller diameter boat-tail . Happen to know that Bruno's has some of them in stock at about $41.00 per hundred . For longer range ; the .308 175gr. Scenar (#GB432) is the better choice . Recommended to me by the Lapua Rep at the Berger last month . Lapua doesn't have a lot of .311's on their roster , unfortunately .
