H4895 in .308

Anybody try H4895 in .308? A guy at the range today said he really liked it in his .308.

Re: H4895 in .308

I've used 4895 in my .308 for years. If I remember my pet load correctly, I used 40.5 grains of 4895, with a Sierra 168 MK, seated to 2.820". That should yield about 2550 FPS.

Re: H4895 in .308

Not to side track your question...but try some Ramshot TAC sometime. I think you will find it to be wonderful in the .308. But, if you want to shoot up some H4895, you should find it to be a suitable powder in .308. But again, Ramshot TAC and Varget will about do it all in the .308 and do it more consistently. TAC goes through a powder measure like water. I don't think you would ever look back. Good luck. Greg.
