DPMS LR-.308 loads

I just bought one from Kirby, with a 24" bbl. Does anybody have one and if so what does it like to eat?

    Mine likes the 165 Hornady SST and IL bullets. It also shoots well with 168, 175 and 178 bullets with 41.5 gr of H4895 and a match primer. If you are shooting from a front rest (other than bipod) you really have to watch out for different canting due to the round forend. You will like it a bunch!

    What 168 gr bullets are you using? Tell me they are SMKs. I have a ton of those.

    CCI-#34 mil primer
    RL-15 {43.5grs)
