I have a supply of 4064 and Rl19.Does anyone have experience with these and something 168gr in a 308? I know powders like Varget is good, but I have these.
IMR4064 is and always will be my favorite powder in the 308. I like Varget as well and Re15. I buy the 4064 in 8 LB jugs for a reason though. Look no further for one of, if not the top powder for the 308.
Most of the military match ammo used to be loaded with IMR 4064. I read someplace that the new 175 gr match/sniper load uses IMR 4064. I personally use either IMR 4895 or IMR 4064 depending on what bullet weight I am using. IMR 4064 if it is over 150 grs of bullet.
Thanks for the replies.It is good that I have 4064 on hand.As strange as it sounds, I've never loaded a 308 in over 40 years of reloading.I also had alot of RL19, but that seems better for larger cases.I've read alot that Varget is pretty good,but try finding some.
I've used both Varget and 4064, and get better results over a wider range of bullet weights and velocities with 4064 rather than the Varget. All my 308's are out of Mod. 600 Remingtons with short barrels, so that may be the factor.
