Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    That's fine. I'm shooting 139 grain hornady factory loads in it now and am happy with them

    I wouldn't spend another dime on barrels, upgrades, optics, or builds until you're fully invested in handloading.
