Re: Which factory 308 Win

It is hard to say. It is possible that if your bullet's jackets are not very concentric, you can definatly see accuracy problems running 165's through a 10x. It is less noticable when using bullets that offer very tight tolerences.

It is possible to spin bullets faster than neccesary with good accuracy. Some barrels for what ever reason just do not like a given bullet weight. I dont know why that is, but it happens.

Any time youre struggling to find accuracy you should always try a different bullet. Even if it is a bullet of the same weight but different style. Most likely, you will do better with a heavier bullet or at least match grade bullets.

Try the 175-180's and see if accuracy improves. If not, try 190-200+. You should be able to run 2600 for the 190's and 2500+ FPS for the 200's.


I hope that helps!

Re: Which factory 308 Win

The 308 will do you just fine. The 12 twist barrel will sling up to 180 grain boat tails to 1000 yards. As far as brand name. I am partial to Howa's because I own two. my .308 will hold moa further than most shooters can. today I was hitting steel plates at 1000 yards with it and that was with cheap ammo. find a good load and my howa will hold the X-ring at 1K if the shooter can dope the wind.
