If you can find it...Hodgdon Varget. I use it in all my .308-derrived calibers (7mm-08, .308, .22-250, etc...). But right now it is VERY hard to find. I ise it for my .308 Win and my 7mm-08, but I have a fair stash of it, and don't shoot my calibers that use it, like I used to, because it's so hard to find. Once it gets back to normal, then I'll be buying up a couple jugs (8lb) at a time of my commonly used powders so I'll have a great stash for anymore hard times that may arise (God forbid, I can't handle this overpriced, powder & bullet dry-spell crap again).
