    Only when I do my part. Sometimes I can get the cart ahead of the horse. Don't take my time.

    Same here. H4895 with 175 SMK's 168 SMK's and 165 SGK's shoot very good.

    H4895 is an excellent powder and I have used it a little. However I stick to IMR4895 in my .308 Milspec, M1As, Garands and 03s. It has served me well for 30 years and still does.
    I have also developed loads for the M700 using 168 SMKs and 165 SBT Gamekings which shoot to the same point of impact. It seems easier for me to get those kind of results with Sierra bullets than other brands.

    I also load Varget for 175 SMK 44.4 gives me .25 moa when I can do my part, but it has always shot under .5 moa it is hard to beat varget in texas as it may be 30 one day then 100 the next.

    Trigger Puller,
    Loading 44.4 grs. of Varget, are you seeing any pressure signs? I tried up to 45 grs. of Varget and was seeing flatten primers. Even with 42.5 grs.(where I settled with) I am still seeing slight flatten primers. 39.9 grs. shot pretty good but I want to go a little faster. At least 2600 or better. I have not chrono'd the load I'm shooting right now.

    No pressure signs at all, I have loaded these @ 2.810 and I am getting 2775 out of a 24" shilen select match barrel. I am waiting on a Broughten for this rifle so will have to work up another load. I will start @ 38.6 and work up from there.
