Re: .308 hunting load suggestions
I shoot a 208gr A-max over 48grs of RL17 for 2610fps. That's a pretty sweet load, not an ideal hunting bullet however. I'm thinking about trying the 210 VLD and 190 VLD. That'll let you shoot way past 600. For 600 yards and in, just try any decent hunting bullet and see what shoots in your rifle. Only need the real heavy high BC bullets once you really get out there. Ofcourse that's just my opinion. Take it for what you want.
I'm shooting a custom Remington 700 with 28" 1-11tw Hart.
Also try VV-N540, VV-N550 and W760 if your shooting 190gr+ class bullets.
Hope this helps,
