2.971" That is .014" off the lands. I use a long action. You could seat it deeper if you wanted too.

Re: 308 Win Long Range Hunting Loads

Yeah I am shooting the amax out of mine and it prints ragged one hole groups with 168 amax and 46 grains of varget seated to 2.8

I have shot a ton of steel and rocks out to a grand and if the wind isnt ripping holds it's own .

I have never messed with the berger hybrids thought about it, but why try to fix it if it ain't broke.

The 308 is a super round for working on your longrange skills with out breaking the bank

That is exactly wanted to hear, after reading about the stability issues of the 168 SMK i wrote off all 168s thinking they all have this problem, good to hear success with the 168 Amax to 1k

The Hybrid will do 1K with no problems too.

Re: 308 Win Long Range Hunting Loads

Used 40.5gr of LT32, lapua brass, 210 primers, 185 gr berger jufggernaut, .001 off the lands. 100 yard group was about 1/10 of an inch. Bullet speed at 1000 yards above mach 1.2. Shooting a Savage10BA with a 26' barrel.
Fluctuating 7 to 12 h winds at the 1000 yard range but still shot a 15' group. LT 32 does not work in my AR 10,as it causes it to short stroke.
For a bolt action 308, LT32 gets an A.
