I'd like to stay with Varget but if you have a good 748 load I need to get rid of the last pound or so. Also...true or false, 748 I should be using mag primers??? All my Varget loads get CCI BR2's. Very happy with that combo. Never used mag primers with 748. Finding consistency with Win 748 is proving to be difficult.
If you got a RL 15 or RL 17 recipe with the 178 AMAX throw that at me too.
I don't have any load date for those powders but I do for H4895 if you choose to use that I can help you out.
I have killed deer witht eh 178 Amax in the 308 and it's perfect.....from 2400fps at 30 yds to 500yds it's perfectly effective.
I now use the Amax with perfect confidence...
