Re: IMR 4064 .308 a Fav?

I am using 44 grains of imr 4064,lapua brass,rem. 9 1/2 primer and 175 smk. I have found 4064 to be the most consistent powder in my rifle.

Re: IMR 4064 .308 a Fav?

Mr Bush Man...
My first post. I have been reading and learning.
I have a 700 VL and am trying to learn all I can concerning the best load. I read and then check the manuels.
Most of the loads I see seam to be a little over the books, so please do not hit me for being cautious.
45 for Varget with the 175 MKG sounds like it is the way to go, I also see that the Sierra data stops off at 41.7g for a velocity of 2500,if I go to 45g I am concerned for pressures..I would not load into the lands for fear of over pressure.Wonder what the velocity out the end is if we look at with the combination listed above?
Thank you for being understanding. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Also, has anyone ever tried the Barnes 165 XLC BT..
Thank you for any advice you can give.

I shoot 175MK out of a Trued and blueprinted Rem700 with match chamber with a 24" 1-11 twist 5R broughton barrel and 42.2 IMR4064 is the best ive ever gotten, accuracy wise, I have gone through about 7 powders and this one by far is the most accurate. I can sit at the range all day and shoot 100yd 1/4moa or less 5 shot groups. Only stopping every 20 shots to swipe the barrel. stay with 4064 just takes time to find what your rifle likes!!
