Remington SPS Varmint .308

Howdy people,

I recently just purchased a Remy SPS Varmint in .308. I would like to see what recipes y'all have made up. I am looking to cover a silver dollar between 300 yds - 500 yds..

Also, I am not really happy with the Rem X Trigger. Interested to see opinion on Jewell vs. Timney..

Thanks to all !

Re: Remington SPS Varmint .308

Three loads for ya.

42.8 grains Alliant AR Comp, .014" off the lands, 168 Nosler Ballistic Tip, RWS Brass, Federal 210M primer, 2790fps, .25MOA to 800yds

43.0 grains Alliant RL15, .015" off the lands, 175 Custom Comp, 175 SMK, 178 Hornady BTHP, RWS Brass, F210M, 2600-2650 depending on bullet .5MOA to 800yds

45.0 grains Alliant RL15, .015" off the lands, 175 Custom Comp, RWS Brass, F210M, 2750fps .25-.5 MOA to 850yds (have not taken this load to 1000 yet)

38.5 grains Alliant RL15, 2.800 OAL, 200grn Sierra Game King, Norma Brass, Wolf Primer, 2200fps .75MOA at 100yrds. It's my hunting load for my 18" barrel hunting .308.

If you don't like the trigger, definitely look into a new one. Though a good smith may be able to adjust it to your liking.

Just be careful w/ the AR Comp load. That is a max load for my rifle. Si suggest starting down around 41.0 grains and working up.

Re: Remington SPS Varmint .308

Two of the guys I shoot with have bought those rifles. Before you spend money on triggers and such and to get the accuracy your looking for go buy a good stiff stock for it. That alone will make things a lot easier to get the gun to do what your asking. One of them put a Bell and Carlson Medalist with the adjustable butt and comb on his and then added a MK4 Leupold to the works and just had a trigger job done on it. That gun shoots.
All three of us use the same load. 44.5 grn Varget- 175 grain SMK - Fed GM 210 Primer and L.C. Brass.
