my favorite 308 win load so far!!!

I was working up a load in my CZ 550 American 308win and stumbeled into this load, winchester brass trim to 2.015 use 46 gr of Varget and 150 Serria Gamekings. This load will hold three quick shots in .35 and the other two .75 at 100 yards. Don't think i can improve on that but if anyone has any suggestions they will be apperciated.


Thanks
Doc

I have (2) 308 rifles that are shooting the 150 grain sierra gamekings. A Remington VTR, and a savage. Both shoot the gamekings very well.

I need to try the SGKs in mine. So far the 168 Bergers shoot the best, but the SGKs are a lot cheaper.

I shoot 46 gr. Varget with Sierra Game Kings, Hornady SST's, and Nosler BT's. All shoot 2800FPS and produce sub .5MOA from my Rem700 MilSpec. I use 165gr. In all three. Varget is a great powder, and very temperature stable.
