Re: New Remington 5r milspec 308 which power?

I have a Rem 700P in 308 and so far it likes Varget. Actually, I loaded some up today at Hodgon's recommendations. 42 grs. to 44.5 grs. 45 grs. Is considered max. All under 175 SMK's. Also had luck with RL-15.

Varget, RL15, Ar Comp, IMR 8208 are four good choices among many that perform really well in the 308 Win.
