180gr TSX load help

My buddy is leaving for his Cow elk hunt neck Sunday. Nothing like planing pay ahead. He has 180gr TSX, and I will be using BL-C2 for powder, and will be used in a bolt action. Two questions which primer would be best for this set up standard LG rifle or LG mag primers. Two is .010 of the lands a good place to start for the TSX's, assuming in mag will allow.

O ya, it's for a 308 Win.

Thanks

Just use a standard rifle primer, you're not burning enough powder to need a magnum primer and not shooting a semi so a standard will work fine.

I personally don't jump bullets above average or seat them in the lands for that matter. My Dad did tests with his .308 Win. Remington Varmint Special and found that varying seating depths didn't have much of an effect on accuracy or velocity. His rifle consistently shot 3/8inch groups at 100yds. Now Remingtons have a little bit of freebore so this maybe the reason he couldn't tell much of a difference. He shoots everything right around .04 off the lands, nothing more, nothing less same goes for me.
