Re: .308 Win. Load Recommendation

For your 24" tube, try starting with 42.0 of RL-15 and Varget for the 168 and 46 of Varget and RL-15 for the 155. These are just to start, work up in .5 grain increments from there. Try those 2 powders, and choose the overall best one. One of those will give you what you want.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
