.308 Powder Choice

I have a Remy 700 .308 with 20 inch barrel and am planning to start handloading. Looking for powder suggestions. I will begin with 165 and 180 gr SGKs.

Thanks in advance.

    RL15, varget and 4064 seem to be the three go to powders.

    Mine loves 44+ of Varget, WLR primers, LC cases and 175 SMKs.

    W748 and H4895 also perform well in the 308.

    Varget is by far the best powder for my 308.

    Everyone I talk to that used varget loves it; however, good luck finding some! I still can't find any and so I went with RL15 and have had good success with it. Let us know how it turns out!
