    I would think something in a 155-175 grain bullet. RL15 would be a good powder to try. You will have to load to lower power levels than you would a bolt gun. Check out AR15. com and maybe accurateshooter.com. Accurate shooter has a good article on .308's that helped me.

    Probably 168grn berger hybrids, SMKs, or Nosler custom comps, with varget, Imr4895, or Alliant ar-comp, cci #34 primers.

    I have one and my cousin has one. I have been talking with an individual that has two and his father has two. They all seem to prefer 165/168 grain bullets. The person I speak of says that the HPBT gamekings shoot great over Varget in all 4 of theirs. I'm gonna try them next.

    Here are some loads that I have developed that work really well for me. All with RWS brass, Federal 210M primers, from a 28" 1:12 twist Lothar Walther barrel. All three of these loads are .014" off the lands.

    175 Nosler Custom Comp, 175 SMK
    43.0 (2650fps)& 45.0 grains RL15(2750fps)

    168 Nosler Ballistic Tip
    42.8grn of Alliant AR Comp (2790fps)
