175 gr. Hunting VLD's with 42 gr. 8208 does real well in my Tac. and will go 1000 yards. COAL is just short of 2.900

    The Bergers are real finicky about seating depth I found on the VLDs that the jump needs to be kept to a min. a daunting problem in a 700. I shoot 175 SMK out of a 22" Krieger on my Scapel and get 2750, no problem getting to 1000. Graf and Sons have some factory seconds for 27.99 a 100 might be worth a try 44+ grn of varget should do what you are wanting. Good luck.

    He tried to seat the 155.5 Target VLD out to the rifling, but would not go.
    So he just loaded to magazine length.

    I explained Bergers generally do not like a jump. He is he** bent on leading to magazine length. His gun has a LONG throat. He wants to work up to 1000 yards on steel plates. I told him he needs to make a choice, load them one at a time and hit at 1000 yards, or load to magazine length and get 2.5 moa.
    I told him either the 175 SMK (a local store has a few boxes) or the 168 Berger (I have some) loaded to or close to the rifling

    anyone have any idea what a bullet does when it goes subsonic before (say 1000 yards) target? how much does accuracy suffer?

    All rifles are diffrent and to many variables like bullet, powder, length of barrel.

    Long story short when a bullet goes subsonic it destablizes and pitches and yaws more and it hurts the accuracy. How much again depends on many many factors.

    Tell him to try this load and see how it shoots....Just load up 15-20 of them and let me know how it shoots...

    Nosler Custom Competition 168gr HPBT bullets
    44.0gr of Varget
    Federal 210 primers
    Hornady Match or Lapua brass (trimmed to proper length)
    bullet seated to SAAMI spec of 2.810" COL

    That load seems to be well liked by almost every .308 shooter I've recommended it to. My 5R .308 loves it.

    Tell him to follow those directions to a T, and let me know how it shoots.

    A .308 Win is supposed to be one of the LESS finicky calibers to load for. I have developed several loads that shoot like a champ out of mine, all the way up to Berget 210 VLD's, but your buddy's rifle doesn't have a tight-enough twist-rate to handle something that heavy.
