Varget is hard to beat. I like 45.5 grains under a Hornady 165 Interlock. The .308 is an easy caliber to get some good accuracy with. Good job.

I load for my friend's Sako 308 and use the 168 classic vld with 45 of varget in nosler brass with cci br2 primer. Shoots under 5/8moa out past 600 yards all day every day. Great combo. I think we were getting 2860fps with very low es and sd.

In the 308 Win

You Reloaders are on Target with Varget with CCI Br2 primers in WW cases in the 308 Win.

Good IMR 4064 with Fed 210 Match primers is another good combo currently loaded in Federal Gold Medal Match Ammo and Army 7.62 Sniper Ammo

The 308 Win what a joy to Reload for
