Anyone have any powder recomendations for the heavier bullets?


Thanks,

I run 185s and 200s in my FTR rig in competition and use Varget (185s) and Vihtavuori N-150 (200s). Ive also run Power Pro 2000 MR with good results. You said that the rifle will be used for hunting (semi long range). For that venue i would use Berger 185 gr VLD hunting bullets with Varget.......Just my .02

Re: 308 Win with 190 - 200's

I beg to differ regarding 190-200 grain bullets going subsonic at 1K. I consistently shoot them at less than 100' above sea level and sub zero temps.

The 190s are my favorite all around 308 bullet. You can get fair velocity with R15 and varget but if you want to step it up, N540, N550 and R17 are stellar.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
