Charging proposals for SPS Varmint sought


I have a Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .308 with 66 cm long barrel.
Can you recommend me a bullet and a charge for this weapon? I look forward to tips. Thank you very much

Re: Charging proposals for SPS Varmint sought

The bullet will depend on what your intentions are and the twist of your barrel however, the 168 gr. is a optimal bullet weight for a .308. With that being said, somewhere at or around 46.0 grs of Varget should do nicely.

Start low and work-up slow.
