308 Win - 185 Berger - 20 inch barrel

What kind of velocity might I expect from the 185 Berger Match Hybrid Target bullet out of a 20 inch barrel? ...and, with what powder?

..using Lapua brass and starting out with BR2 primers

Basically, I'm trying to determine if the 308 will push these fast enough to take advantage of the higher BC. Or, if I should stick with 175 SMK, 175 Berger OTM, or 178 AMAX.

Thanks!
Richard

Im shooting 168 silver tips at 2750 using 45.8 gr of rl-15 out of a 20 inch tube. Shooting 1/2 inch groups at 100. I found it to be my preferred hunting load because of the velocity i got out of the 168s. Just a fyi. Im about to mess around with the 168 bergers ill let u know my results if ur interested.

I'm copying the 'mail' on this one. I have a 308 Savage short action 20" barrel I have to go pick up and it's a new caliber for me.......

I like new toys....
