Re: .308 rebarrel choices
Alright just got back from the range and shot my custom loads for my .257 Wby Mag, and my .308.
Since i have only tested with 168gr projectiles for my .308 so far, and I have a box of 250 pack of 175gr Nosler Custom Comp .30 bullets laying around, figured i'd test out some... Apparantly my 5R loves the 175's as much as the 168 Custom Comps. At 100 yards I am only 1 Mil lower with the 175's and my side-to-side is dead on for both! So, needless to say, I didn't touch the scope, I just shot with the Mil setup.
So, good to know that now. Tonight I might load up 100 of my new Lapua brass with my 175gr load I concocted to see how well the gun likes both at long distance.
