168 barnes xlc for 308 winchester

does any one has any loads for this bullet. my gun is remington pss ltr chambered for the 308 winchester. by the way the barrel is 20 inches. i'm trying to stay around 2600 fps velosity since my scope has a bullet drop compensator.

thanks sambo

We tested from 43 to 46 grains of Varget and got the following drops at 2700 fps. We zeroed at 100 yards but did not shoot 200 and 300, got drops for 400 - 900 yards.

100 - 0
200 - x
300 - x
400 - 7.0 MOA
500 - 11.5 MOA
600 - 15.75 MOA
700 - 19.5 MOA
800 - 25.5 MOA
900 - 33.0 MOA

I shoot a m-14 heavy barreled sniper type and use a lc-91 case with win primer and 42 grains of imr 4895 for 2600 fps. It is an awsome bullet for this rifle if you take the time to tweek the seating septh. I can consistently hit prairie dogs to 800 yards and you should see what it will do to a way out there wild hog.
