Shot many 175VLD....

44grain RL15
Fed210M
Remington brass

A buddy of mine shoots the 208grain Amax over 48 grains of RL17 in his 308. Sends that bullet at 2800fps!

Re: 308 Berger bullets

Hey, Miller Outdoors- has it been your experience that the 185's out of a .308 winchester take a few hundred yards to go to sleep or settle in? Or do you consistantly see good accuracy closer than 250 yards?

For the price, I can't justify continuing with my load with accuracy that won't drop below 3/4 moa.

In my limited experience with them the accuracy is there at 100 yards if it's going to be there at distance. I have, however, noticed consistently better groups at distance than up close in relation to MOA, but not big differences - like in the neighborhood of .10 or .15 moa.
