Re: .308 palma

Well I say that's a little slow for a 23.5" barrel, I run 168s from a 24" at 2840 with 4064 and accuracy is great. What is your twist, if its a 1:10, you will likely have to break 2800 for the next node with 165s.

Re: .308 palma

You may find another sweet spot between 2775 and 2800fps. A friend of mine shoots my handloads in short range tactical matches, 20" 12 twist, for my rifle they are neck sized with his they are FL sized, I use 47 grns in mine and 46 in his in winchester brass using 4064, they run at 2840 from my 24" and only 2715 from his 20" but it still shoots great, bullet of choice is the hornady 168 bthp match or amax.

My best 5 shot so far has been .297", his was .422" I think, mine typically holds .3-.4" his is usually around .5-.7". Mine also has a better stock, trigger, and highend glass.

I've shot that load to 600yrds with a 3 7/8" group. He shoots 2-3" groups at 300yrds in the short range tactical matches.
