Re: Load Suggestion for Savage 308
Here are a few of mine. I should tell you that I have a 1:12 twist. Components are RWS brass, and Federal 210M primers.
With either a 175 Nosler Custom Comp or 175SMK
43 and 45 grains of Reloader 15 (work up to the 45grn load) .015" off the lands
I'm starting to play with 168 Berger Hybrid. They have a higher BC than the 175's and 178 A-max. They have a .519 G1 BC and a .266 G7 BC. These are all .015 off the lands.
42.6 grains AR Comp
49.0grn Power Pro 2000MR
These are all hot loads, so work up to them. They are max in my rifle, but give me the best accuracy and the lowest ES.
The last load is one I cam up with for my 18" 1:10 .308 hunting rifle. It's 38.5grn of RL15 and a 200grn Sierra Game King.
