Doing some work with the .308

Been doing some load work with the .308 since I have done a free float stock and a trigger. I think I found a load I will stick with.

CCI 200 Primers
45gr Varget
175gr SMK
Winchester brass neck sized

Here is a "group" at 431 yards. There was an inconstant wind so I am not worried about the horizontal spread. But I am very happy with the vertical spread



Here is a short video of shooting this group

And my quick drop chart for coyote hunting. If I have time I will use my phone app and dial in the correction.



Here is a video of my wife shooting the .308 This is only the 2nd round she has ever shot with this rifle, First one was a HIT and then I got out the video camera.

447 yards

And here is the poser shot
