I got bored and decided to shoot the last 24 handloads I had loaded just to see if I could do it. Plus, my buddy that was with me bet me that I couldn't put them all under 2". I had to accept the challenge.

For some reason my .308 is not picky at all on seating depth. I can load to SAAMI or to the lands and it will shoot good.

Here's the load I was shooting that day, which has become my go-to load for 168gr bullets.

Nosler 168 Custom Comp bullets
Lapua brass
Fed 210 primers
44.0gr of Verget
Seated to SAAMI spec of 2.810"

I try...I will try to shoot a better group next time I take her to the range. Right now the scope is on my 7mm STW. I'll try to give a better group next time.
