Re: 1000 Yard .308 Reloading

I'm looking to use a 175 g SMK what would be a good powder mix? This is in a RRA LAR8.

Re: 1000 Yard .308 Reloading

I use reloader 15. I havent found a 308 bolt or semi auto 308 that didnt love it or Varget. Those seem to be the "go to" powders. US issue m118lr which is the military 308 sniper round had reloader 15 with at 175 smk in lake city match/lr brass. It was my starting point for long range shooting in 308 and shot around 2650 fps out of my 5r milspec 308. feceral gold metal match 175 is very very close in speed and poi to m118lr. Reportedly 43.1 grains of rl-15 with a fed 210 match primer and a smk 175 seated to 2.815 is the clone for m118lr.
It works well in my gun and hold .5 moa if I do my job
