Re: Help with my 308

I guess that I should have added that Shillen doesnt offer a 1/11 twist.... that I saw.... guess I have some more research to do yet.... Actually this part of building a rifle is a blast! Endless possibilities!

thanks again for all the input!

    The 168's will be good to 800 with the SMK. Past 800 you need to go to a VLD style 168 or go to the 175SMK for 1000+. The 185's would be a good round to run to 1000 with for steel and paper. The 175 will be a good all around bullet, unless you go to the 155 Palma, Scenar, A-max, Berger VLD, or 155.5 full bore.

    I should have added, right now I am getting outstanding results with 168 NBT's, and starting to play around with Hornady 178's to extend my range.
