Re: 110g. V-max\'s out of a 308win. ?????????

A hunting partner of mine had a 308V that he hunting yotes with using the Sierra 110g HP. He shot a max load of H322w with unreal accuracy and velocity. The accuracy node in his rifle was at the Max that his rifle would take with 322.

I shot another load in many 308's that I have had and also with friends that is a hands down winner that I will share with you. This load has been magic in every rifle that I have tried it in, Mossberg, Remington, and Ruger.

The load is using a 125g Nosler Ballistic tip or a 135g Sierra Single shot pistol bullet, any brand of brass that you want to try, Fed 210's, and between 49.5 and 52.0g of 748. The accuracy you will not believe. In the 700's that I had, the velocity was between 3100-3200 fps and in most of the 308's that I have shot this load in, the accuracy was at a max load for that particular rifle.

Winchester brass is much tougher than Remington brass, and PMC brass is even better.

We shot a ton of jackrabbits with this load, the bullet detonates a jackrabbit...rabbit will be scattered for 75 feet. If you just get a piece of a coyote, it will kill him. I shot the entire ass end off a coyotes as he came running into the call...I did not leade him quite enough. It is normal to shoot a 6" hole in a coyote when this bullet hits a coyote square in the ribs on a broadside shot.

52.0g of 748 will leade to a slighyly compressed load which is ok.

Good luck!

Thanks thats good info. What powders I have on had are the RL15. RL22,IRM 4227

The only data for these that I have found is RL15 between 46-50g
IRM4227 @ 32G 2835FPS
I have not tested any of these but I probley won't use 32g of 4227 I just like more vol. of powder in my cases.

The 4227 is way to fast and the R#22 is way to slow with the R#15 being about right in burning rate for the 110's.

Good luck!
