I used Nosler 180 grain Accubonds and 43.0 grains of Varget. I was shooting about .75 MOA out to 500 yards.

FYI, these loads will be fired from a stock Browing A-bolt, 22" sporter contour.

Thanks in advance.
I am going to try the barnes 130 gr. ttsx.Best looking bullet i've ever seen for 308.Ball c 2 or H4895 for powder.168 gr and 180 grain way too heavy for the 308 to hunt deer imho.130 gr. barnes is as long as 150 nosler ballistic tip!
